Stop #217 on my brewery tour of the world.

Completed a brewpub tour of Ann Arbor the first week of June 2011 with a couple of my beer-snob-drinking friends. Easily shakes out to…

1. Jolly Pumpkin & Arbor Brewing tied and depending on unique vs. traditional beers
2. Blue Tractor BBQ & Brewery
3. Grizzly Peak Brewing Company (very distant third)

After a dismal experience at Grizzly Peak, my expectations were low for this lowest-rated brewpub in town. I'm pleased to report we had a fine experience other than waiting a long time for our food at the end of the night (round of beers on the house for that).

On tap..
Pilsner
IPA
Bock
Vanilla Java
Mokee java (Belgian hybrid)
Hefe

Our group had the hefe, IPA, and vanilla java and all agreed they were well done. We also had too much BBQ and I consider it legit given the four American regional sauces they offered.

Lots of slate on the inside and a bit deceptive for a BBQ place. Jolly Pumpkin's "sister" brewpub which I'm not quite sure what that means.

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.
