Atwater Block was a couple blocks from my hotel so I had to stop in. I thought the place was closed. The light out front was off and a gentleman that was there ahead of me told me the place must be closed. There was a sign on the door that said tasting room around the corner. I ventured on and found an unmarked door that was ever so slightly ajar. When I opened the door I thought I was walking into the production facilities. I was right, but at the far end of the building was a couple tables and a bar. Their tasting room is just where they brew. So I enjoyed that aspect.

I bellied up to the bar and sampled a few beers. I used to love the Vanilla Java Porter, but did not care for it the last time I tried it. I tried the Shaman's Porter and Coniption Fit, a DIPA. They were decent. The beers were served in clear plastic cups. It didn't look like the had any food. The bartender, while knowledgeable, was not outgoing. I think they had 8-12 beers to choose from.

It is a neat setup for a tasting room. I'm glad I stopped in even though the beers are remarkably unremarkable.

An accidental find while going to a Red Wings game in Detroit, Atwater was right around the corner from a pub that had a shuttle that was going to the game. Of course I had to check it out!

When we walked in the rolling door there was some kind of silent auction going on but that didn't deter us from talking a seat at the small bar in the back of the brewery. It took a while to get the attention of the bar tender (understandable considering what was going on) but when we did the beers came quickly (3 double IPAs). Solid beers, but nothing life changing.

The atmosphere was great, the brewery was active. There was a batch in the process of being mashed in, they were checking levels on ferm tanks all the while we sipped on our beers.

The next beer was a Java Vanilla Porter, very nice flavorful beer. That was the last beer for the night before heading to the game, but they did have about 5 other beers on tap.

A great find that kept me interested and I'd recommend if you are in Detroit, not a destination brewery, but solid.
