Third stop on a recent trip to Detroit with my girlfriend.

Atmosphere: fun welcoming vibe, patrons of all ages, cool chalkboard drawings, Christmas lights add a nice charm, busy spot on a Saturday night, not much seating aside from the main bar and a few tables in the back.

Service: waitress was fast, courteous, and capable of describing the house beers, food arrived in reasonable time. No complaints here.

Selection: ordered the Local 1529 IPA (solid) and Big Sky Scotch Ale (average) on tap; the lady enjoyed her wine. They seem to brew a respectable range of styles as the chocolate stout, pilsner, brown ale, altbier, porter, and tripel were all available on our visit. SN Celebration was the other guest draught.

Food: went with the Brewhouse Nachos, which were pretty tasty. Pizza, sandwiches, and pasta dominate the menu but there's some lighter options like salads and catfish.

Overall: while there's nothing spectacular about this brewpub, I like the approachable party ambience and the IPA is very good. I'd love to return for a full meal to get a better feel for the place; however, based on our positive experience I'd say Beer Co. is worth a crawl if you happen to be downtown. (1,202 characters)
