On a rare visit to Detroit while on the way to a club I stumbled across this micro brewery / restaurant and stopped in for a skosh.

Atmosphere is essentially generic slightly upscale brewpub. Wood, brewing apparati, and tvs sprinkled throughout. Clearly intended for sports fans, but not so over the top as to be repulsive to non-sports fans like myself.

Service was good, though the food was only what I would term decent.

The main thing I stopped by for was the beer, and overall, pretty decent for brewpub stuff. They had several selections on tap, and the one I tried (the porter) seemed to be relatively high quality for these small places.

Worthy of stopping by if you're in the area, but nothing I would go out of my way for.

Small brewpub within close proximity to many downtown attractions. Has been there long before the craft beer popularity explosion and it shows. Brick and metal decor spotted with vintage beer signs and old photos of beer related nostaligia. The brew system is intertwined with the bar with a very Gotham City kind of feel. Unfortunately the beer is rather mediocre, but decent enough to pair with some grub before or after a ballgame. Not taking anything away from the Brewers, but given their great location, I wouldn't mind seeing an overhaul of beer recipes to get more asses in seats on days other than game days. Detroit's beer game is on the up, and these guys are definitely getting passed by.
