Ended up stopping here on a recent trip to Detroit. When walking into the brewery, you're presented with a nice looking bar, multiple tvs's, a large assortment of photos and just an overall good feeling.
I ended up trying their wheat beer, Fourth Street Wheat, which..I wasn't really impressed with, though it seemed a little off, so it may have been something wrong with the batch or? Unfortunately this was the only beer I tried from the menu,but I will give the additional styles of their beer a chance before completely writing them off.
The service was pretty good, our waitress seemed attentive and helpful, though didn't really go into detail with the beer offered.
The selection of beer was your typical brewery styles including an IPA, Porter, ESB, a Light, and a Red, but also had a cask ale and a few other guest brews on tap. Overall typical, but a decent selection for all fans.
The food was excellent! I ended up having the Sheppards pie which was quite the portion and quite tasty. My friend ended up having the Jambalaya and enjoyed it also. The food menu was pretty diverse, having sandwiches, burgers, fish and evenly priced.
Overall not a bad brewery and would return. I would like to see if they were just having an off day on that beer or ? I have a feeling by reading the reviews and by other people that I know going there, that the beer is decent.
