Witches Hat is literally a mile from my house so hard to not give any extra points for that.

WH these days has quite a good selection of styles, usually at least 8 on tap. To be fair I don't love all their beers, but they are all fresh and you can see with each one where the owner was going with it. They are also starting to barrel age some beer so that should be interesting. As one would expect they have a mug club which offers discounts. Their prices used to be cheap when they opened, now they are just simply fair.

Service is friendly and if you go there a few times they remember you. The owners regularly wait tables and are happy to get feedback on their product. The place is rarely packed but gets a fairly steady traffic most days. It has a family friendly concept with board games and such, although at the end of the day it is still a bar.

Food is nearly non existent. But you can bring your own food in, there is a Jets pizza within walking distance.

Overall a great local place to enjoy a couple. Honestly I would not travel too far to go here, but it is a diamond in the rough of South Lyon Big Boys and Coney Islands. (1,141 characters)

Visited the brewery for their barrel aged Night Fury release. The event was run really damn well and the staff did a great job the entire day.

The brewery itself was very cool. Liked the wall of mugs for the mug club members. The bar was nice and long and could accommodate a lot of seating. The dining area was nice and had a cool fireplace. It didn't feel cramped, never felt rushed, and had great service. Will definitely be checking out this place again in the future. (473 characters)

Witch's Hat is my local brewery. I love going to the hat and enjoy a lot of the beers there. They do a really nice job at creating unique beers within normal styles. Their barrel aged program is outstanding as well can't wait for Fury for a Feast.

Staff is always helpful and friendly. No one has a problem helping out and they all look like they are genuinely enjoying themselves.

The new building is a great improvement from the old location and has a much bigger feel while still maintaining the "small brewery" feel. (524 characters)

Went at 6 on a Saturday. Decent crowd, laid back vibe. 16 beers on tap. $5 for most pints. The beers were very good (especially Thrash Punk). The location is a but far from me so I probably won't have a change to og here very often, but I certainly would stop back by if I were in the area (289 characters)

Really cool vibe in this place. Quite possibly the largest blown glass mug collection in the world for their mug clubbers. Service is really good and they always have a ton of beers on draft..Great place to grab a beer with friends or even family as it is kid friendly..Its a must visit when you are anywhere near..There is no food, but you can bring in your own food. Some days they do have a food truck there. (411 characters)

Love the new location. Great beers as always. Fury for a feast party in the summer is a must. BBQ and night fury variations you cany go wrong. No kitchen for food, but it looks like a food truck is going to be pretty regular. (225 characters)

Witch's Hat is an upcoming brewery in a little strip mall space, where you can watch them brew while you drink at the bar. They make great beers, and are already expanding. I'm sure the new facility will increase the popularity of this brewery. (244 characters)
