Went to the new taproom today. They had 43 beers on tap and more in bottles. The beer was fresh (of course, because it just opened), and served in appropriate glassware. Germany, Belgians, and American's were well represented. British selection was meager. Of course, the selection focused on Michigan beer.
Take a peek yourself at the beer menu:

Prices were OK, but to be honest, one can get better prices down the road at the Bay Leaf, where almost everything is $4. I had a Trois Pistoles ($9), a GLBC Dortmunder ($5), and my GF had Celebrator ($6.50) and some Monks Blood Red wine from Left Foot Charleys (on tap-and for $6, the pour was disappointingly small).

The problems - There are 7 large screen TV's, so this is not a place to ENJOY your beer, per say. It makes business sense to have 7 TV's because people will drink more as they watch the game and scream and yell (as they were doing today), even at 3:30 in the afternoon when I thought it wouldn't be too busy and not to loud.
The other problem: When we sat at a table (after waiting about 20 minutes), the waitress told us all food and beer is ordered at the bar. The problem with this is: 1) The tips for the waitress are going to be lower if I have to wait in line to place an order (isn't that her job?), and 2) I forgot to pay the waitress and paid the bartender instead, with tip...Oops.
