I've been here countless times, and it can get pretty crowded but the pizza is amazing and the beer is pretty good as well.

Cool spot near Wayne State University. Solid true-to-style beers, but nothing fancy or flashy. Cool rooftop available when the weather is nice, pretty reasonably priced. Snacks and artisan style brick oven pizzas.

Situated in a shack-looking building just outside of Wayne St University in the midst of an area becoming more developed with swanky bars and restaurants. It feels a bit out of place, but then again, it also has an interesting charm to it. The staff and patrons all seem very chill and friendly. Not a huge selection, three to four of their regular rotation, maybe a season or an experimental. They serve 10" pizzas as well as a selection of salads and a few side-like dishes. Everything was reasonably priced. Worth a quick visit for some brews and grub.

It can get crowded here, but that is a testimony to their great products and neat locale. The roof top is a great place to sit in warm weather, but otherwise, enjoy the bar. Well worth the trip.
