Pretty decent place if you're in the area. Stopped by the other day for the first time in a long time. Decent sized place. Looks like a lot of brew pubs these days (although this one has been around longer than most in the area), lots of dark wood and darkly painted walls. Old pressed-tin style ceiling. Decent variety on tap, pours come in 16 or 20oz sizes. Crowlers, growlers, and six packs of their standards. Some $25 750 ml bottles of sours. Food is decent, prices are what you'd expect in Ann Arbor. Not a place I'd make a destination, but good enough if you're on that side of town.

Went on a recent visit to Ann Arbor, went for a late night snack with my grown children. We were excited that the menu included pierogi, which is hard to come across in Texas. The Korean barbecue flavored wings were also a hit. I had a Belgian style tripel that was pretty good. The service was great and we enjoyed the visit. Would go back next time in AA.

Nice selection of house drafts and bottles, also have some guest taps. Service was.......bad. Empty glasses sat as I wished for another beer, food order was not put in by our waitress (she did apologized for this). Food finally arrived, warm at best. All in all not impressed by beer, food, or service. I am by far a patient person but if this place was in my hometown it would be a one and done experience.

My wife and I stopped here to see the results of their remodeling and to experience this brewery for the purposes of this review. We've been here many times before but have never written a review. This was also the first stop of an afternoon pub crawl. We had lunch and a sampler flight of 6 beers knowing that we couldn't have any more than that with three more pubs to visit.

All of the beers that we chose are also available in bottles on store shelves, so we were disappointed that there were no pub-only options. However, we had not previously had one of the beers, the pilsner, so we made it a point to choose it. We have always liked Arbor's beers, and today was no exception. All were what we remembered them being, and the pilsner was one of the best that we've had at a craft brewery. Aside from the 6-packs of their regular beers that are in a cooler for carry-out sales, there were also several specialty beers available in 750 ml. bottles, and we chose to purchase the sour version of their 20th anniversary barleywine. We're looking forward to popping that cork.

The food has always been very good here, and our lunch selections were no different. The menu has changed a bit since our last visit several years ago (a more healthy, organic theme), and the new choices are what we focused on for our lunch.

We go back a ways with our appreciation for this pub, and today's visit further cemented our desire to continue to support this brewery.
