Brewpub, brewpub, and now what? We're still in Ann Arbor, but I think we've got some time yet. The bright, hot yellow-orange thing is still up there in the sky so it can't be too late. I think we're now moving in a different direction than where we left the car...
The bartender was drinking Bell's Two Hearted Ale on cask. I immediately asked het to marry me, but she didn't reply (She, deep in thought, contemplating my offer, to be sure). The "L" seat bar seats about 10, with 7 raised bar and some shorter tables in the adjacent pen beneath a massive mirror. Brick walls, stucco ceiling, duct work, colored glass lamps and track lighting, beer signs, placards, mirrors, a good juke box, stained glass panels to the rear facing into the far room, and a single TV above rear the corner of the bar.
The rear room holds 12 booths and a handful of tables, the walls decorated with mirrors, and beer bottles lining the room and the posts over the entranceways. Likewise with the forward rooom, a 6 table nook along the front windows. Downstairs, there's a room with another "L" shaped bar, this one seating a dozen. Phil's golf game and foosball but otherwise, dark, dim, and creepy. I'm a-scared, I'm goin' back upstairs.
70 taps and 3 casks (Bell's Two Hearted Ale & Porter, and the DogFishHead 90 Minute IPA). Taps behind the bar in a single row beneath shelves of booze runs the length. Blackboards above list the specials. A very good collection of Michigan beers (Arcadia, Dark Horse, Bell's, New Holland, Motor City, Short's, Dragonmead, Founders, King Brewing, Joly Pumpkin), micros near and far (DogFishHead, Harpoon, Great Lakes, Sierra Nevada, Celis, Anchor, Sam Adams, Lionheart), Belgians (Delirium Tremons, Gulden Draak, Piraat, La Chouffe, Hoegaarden, Duchesse De Bourgogne), Germans (Franziskaner, Weihenstephan, Ayinger, Warsteiner, Reissdorf Kolsch, Spaten), a hat trick of Irish Stouts (Guinness, Beamish & Murphy's), ciders and more.
60 plus bottles show a larger selection of Belgians (Achel, Westmalle, Rochefort, Orval, Chimay, Triple Karmeliet, Piraat, Caracole, Fantome, Duchesse, Delirium, Duvel, Chouffe, Gulden Draak), English & Scottish, and a nice focus on Porters & Stouts.
They've also got wines, small batch bourbons, single malts, and do Martini's. A late night munchies menu shows Fries, Stix, Nachos, Wings & Rings. Service was pleasant, beer was outstanding. The deal!!
