I enjoyed a family lunch at Jolly Pumpkin recently and was very pleased with the beer and the food. Their beers are a bit different from what you'll taste at other area microbreweries. They are finished in oak casks and this imparts a different flavor. They are also known for their sour beers which are significantly different in taste. They are all worth a try. I most recently had the Weizen Bam, a summer release wheat ale, and it was great. Light, but full of flavor...great for lunch! I paired it with the Chicken and Brie sandwich with a side salad: grilled chicken on rustic bread with brie and apricot jam. Yum!
My family members tried the Grilled Romaine Salad with Warm Potato Croutons, the Asian Layered Salad, and the Braised Lamb Sandwich (harissa-spiced). Everyone raved about their selections.
Prices were acceptable for a nice downtown Ann Arbor lunch with beer and the service was perfect. Definitely recommend trying out JP for beer, snacks, lunch, or dinner. Especially if you want to try some unique beers and food that often has surprising little twists. It's nice to try out something just a bit different once in a while!
