For a moderate sized restaurant, they are incredibly committed to their brewing. There are at least a dozen offerings that are brewed on site - along with lots of other great craft beers to choose from. The service is very attentive, even on a surprisingly busy Tuesday night, and the food is pretty good. Had some honestly great fish and... More

Found this brewery close to my hotel, I am a craft beer fan, and was not familiar with Black Lotus, so went and checked it out on a Friday night about 8PM. Was a short wait for tables, I was solo so took a seat at the bar. A couple of flat screens showing sports. Large chalkboard with all current... More

We sat outside, the server was polite. However, no explanation on why food was so slow. Fries were cold when served. Not a great experience. Will not return.

The wheat(dot)com is def the most memorable as it was so delicious. It has a golden color with a nice head... So refreshing and smooth. The Dunkle Tank and the Gift (Belgian Strong) ale were also fabulous. You can tell quality ingredients are used to make the beer and it is fresh and cold. We had an order of the... More

Always a good standby for a meal and a brew or too. They are good about keeping consistent beers and food on menu, but also mixing it up with new flavors too. Definitely on my visit often list, plus close to home ! Staff is very friendly, good service.

Great beer in downtown Clawson. Not too crazy of a menu but the do have fun specials. Burgers are always good and the chips are homemade. Award winning beer and free parking make this a regular spot. Also the first date for my wife and I!

The food was okay, but the drinks were amazing. Service was fine and the place had a nice vibe. Your best bet is to sit outside when the weather is nice!

Given the reviews I expected a lot more. It was a Sunday night and our waiter wanted to be anywhere but there. The place was about a third full and yet it took forever to order a drink and when we did, he wanted our food order at the same time. Good thing we did order then because it was... More
