I rolled up on this joint yesterday. It looked like it used to be a chain restaurant (found out it was originally a Pizzeria Uno). Upon entering it looked like a chain restaurant. I was happy to see that they had two bars and a lot more space than the one in Ann Arbor. I was disappointed to see only about 20 beers on tap. I guess I'm spoiled from going to the other location.
The bartender could not have been more friendly. We talked beer and about differences in the two locations. He suggested beers that this location had and were not available in AA. I met a guy that knew beer and was a fan of Michigan, Tigers, and Red Wings.
The place was not crowded, but it was 1:30pm on a Satruday. Not everyone starts at noon and finishes at midnight like me. I loved the space this place had to offer but it seemed like they lacked the selection or the ambiance of the AA location. But I am biased and trying to be objective. I would definitely recommend it though.

W have been here numerous times. About 3 miles from the house. Typically 30 -35 beers on tap and another 75 in bottles. The food is very good with a good variety. Most of the servers know their beer and can recommend one if you tell them what you are looking for. A beer Garten just opened with live music. Two bars, the D bar is away from the restraint and a typical bar. The long bar is in the main eating area.
I have never been to the A2 location but, I have recommended this place to many people and no one has been disappointed.

Ashley’s, a national level beer destination, has done some nice things here. This has a nice selection of beers, american micros, some nice imports. Food is pretty good, it is a restaurant area with really good beer and a bar area, the bar area is pretty fun. They have a real ale festival which is a lot of fun and a nice way to taste cask ales. Over time they are doing more and more events here like the Belgian fest. This has moved it to the beer destination in western wayne county. Good to see them upgrading things over time. The thing they have over Ann Arbor is space and are using it for really great events.

My most recent visit was on Sunday for chocolate and beer pairing during the Belgian Beer Festival. I've been here many times before, but when they put on an event, they go all out. The special dinner menu, the dessert menu, all the Belgian beers on tap and in bottles, and the special Schokolad chocolates that they had made, infused with different beers, really display dedication.
The service has always been solid, not spectacular. The atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxing. There is always a great selection of beers on tap, and they are very good at letting people know when they get a keg of something special. The food on the regular menu is good; I generally have appetizers and samplers. However, the food on the Belgian menu was fantastic. I had mussels steamed in Duchesse de Bourgogne, and my fiance had a burger with Orval cheese. Both were spectacular.
I will admit that there is a charm at the Ann Arbor location that is missing here. However, I also have to admit that I like having the extra space for events and not having to deal with waiting forever. I will continue to support this place, especially the special events that it puts on.

I have been to Ashley's in Westland quite often. The atmosphere here is up to you're personal preference, I personally enjoy it very rarely is it extremely packed (unless they are have some type of event). The people who frequent Ashley's are usually some pretty knowledgeable beer drinkers, which helps me usually get good beers that I would like.
The staff for the most part provide awesome service, and there pretty knowledgeable of the beers they have and also beers they don't have on hand.
The food they offer is quite diverse, and everything i have tried has been very good. The Ashley's club sandwich is my favorite hands down, not just of they food they offer but better than any other club sandwich I've had at any other food establishment.
They also have what is known as the "Beer Tour", in which you get a card with 131 different types of beer on it. If you do this card it will have you trying different beers that you wouldn't normally try, just so you can complete the card. This is what really opened my eyes and taste buds to the whole spectrum of beer styles and tastes. The more beers you try will earn you free stuff from Ashley's (appetizers, pizza, hats, t-shirts) and when you finish the card you get your name on a plaque at the front door.
I will admit that I may be a little biased about this place, but this establishment is the reason i have become a beer connoisseur, instead of just a beer drinker. They showed me that there is way better beers to drink than what i was used to.

This is the best local multi-tap.
Beer: They have a ridiculous selection of both bottled and draft beer. The feature rotating taps from many of the good Michigan breweries. Tuesday is the best day to go because it is $3 pint night. No matter what there is always something to drink that is good.
Food: They feature a large selection of foood. y menu favorites are the various types of fries, the Texas Burger and the Buffalo Chicken Fingers.
Service: Depending on who you get as a server the service can be great or mediocre. Nicole in the bar is great and very knowledgable about beer. Laura the manager is also very helpful and knows her ber. Stu the bartender is also a beer aficionado and knows his stuff.

I've been trying to find a better beer bar in the area but keep coming back to Ashley's because nobody can compete with the selection. 40 taps and they always seem to have something that is a one off batch. Like B-Craft black IPA that was incredible. Every Tuesday is $3.00 pint night (Higher ABV sometimes are not included). Been there pretty much every night of the week and it's never over crowded. Wait-staff knows their beer, they serve everything in the proper glass. Service is excellent. They also have festivals throughout the year. Stop by maybe I will see you there.
