Stopped in for lunch and a beer. Nice warm, rustic atmosphere. Felt especially appropriate because of the blizzard outside.

I ordered a burger and a cup of soup for lunch, both were pretty decent but nothing great. They have a few different BBQ sauces they offer with your food, kind of unique.

The beer selection was just ok. The small selection is understandable because of how small of a brewpub this is, but that doesn't make it less dissapointing. I think they had 5 or 6 including a seasonal and a double IPA. These were the only two I tried. The seasonal was a pretty decent spiced Christmas beer, maybe a little bit overspiced. The DIPA on the other hand was very odd. Not necessarily bad...certainly not good. Not brewed to style in my opinion at all, it wasn't very hoppy and had a smooth butteryness to it I couldn't figure out. I would have left feeling much better about the small selection if the few beers they did have were executed better.

Service was very friendly and fast, however there was no one else there really so I guess I may not be the best judge.

Overall this is not a bad small brewpub. However, with ABC, Grizzly Peak, the new Jolly Pumpkin cafe, and Ashley's all within walking distance I see little reason to frequent the Blue Tractor. (1,276 characters)

This place is amazing, the food was amazing, the beer was amazing, and the servers and employees were helpful it was pricey but after eating the tractor burger it was worth it. It was the best medium rare burger I have ever eaten. I am definitely joining the Mug Club. (268 characters)

Good food which is available either at the bar or typical restaurant-type layout, as well as in the basement whiskey/beer bar and (free) live music venue. Offer at least a handful of draft options which rotate fairly frequently. Friendly servers, bartenders, and hosts/hostesses. Prices reasonable for the food (downtown Ann Arbor reasonable anyways) and two separate happy hours every day to make the beer very moderately priced on average. (446 characters)
