    Expect MUCH larger crowds. Getting a seat at the bar ~5pm was easy last Nov... that is definitely not the case now. No idea what is on tap, but Closure is always a safe choice. The sandwiches are, as always, amazing. Particularly the brisket (pricey) and the turkey sandwich.

    That's what I want to hear.
    it was limited on crowd when we hit it in November. Bears Vs Lions game too!
    Beer was pretty good then, and I can imagine how much better now. Pretzels were good too!

    it was the hightlight of our trip to Bell's. And hit it on the way back.

    I added after you saw my post. The brisket or turkey sandwiches are always the highlight of my trip up. They are amazing.

    Wish this thread would have started a day earlier. Stopped by on my way home from Detroit (after driving through blizzard like conditions for over 4 hours). Got the Turkey Bacon Melt, but it was pretty good though.

    Enjoyed Anger the most of what I tried there and picked up a couple bottles of Delusion. Anyone on here had it before? Only found one review on the other site. Is it boozy or balanced? Just want to know how long I should hold onto them before opening.
  14. May be going to Greenbush this weekend.

    Just wanted to update on my trip to GreenBush today.
    Frickin' terrific. Was definately the highlight of the night.
    The stouts, both Coffee and Oatmeal were terrific! Place has grown a bunch, but in a very good way.
    Didn't have Delusion on tap, but got a couple bottles to go.

    Next stop was Shoreline. Beers on tap were OK. But bought a 2009 Lost Sailor Imperial Stout 22oz and shared with company. That beer is sick good!! (best beer of the night)

    Hit Village inn in Chesterton, wings and SN pale Ale.
    Finished with a stop at Figure 8 in Valpo. for a Black Corridor. Damn fine beer.

    Night is young and I'm old. All is well!

    They've been in restaurants and bars around Chicago since soon after they opened. Great marketing move on their part. Good distribution got them noticed, and it's an easy trip to Sawyer from the area.

    They said within the first few months of opening they were having a hard time keeping up with the keg distribution. Seems like they had all the sales lined up before they started producing!
    Great marketing! No doubt!
  24. I had an Anger on tap at a restaurant in Royal Oak and thought it was awesome. I'm pretty to eager to try some of their other beers...anyone in the Detroit area know of any bottle shops that carry them? I feel like I've seen it in stores, but not recently or often.

    8 Degrees Plato in Ferndale only for now... more to come.

    They do a few one offs but nothing official with distributors yet.
