“MIcrobrewery with good food!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Visited with a group around 8pm and the place was very busy. IT is loud, so conversation can be challenging, at times. They had a nice variety of regular and seasonal beers brewed in the on site brewery. The salads were an unexpected surprise made with mixed greens and fixings. The mac and cheese was served in a small skillet, a hearty serving. Shepherd's Pie was mainly potatoes, meat and corn - a little different mixture than the traditional recipe, but was tasty. The beer soup was a hit - not too heavy on the cheese or beer. The beers flowed and food was good in a relaxed environment. A great place to drop in for drinks or meal. I doubt you will be disappointed!

“If you're wanting a beer downtown...”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

...it's fine to come here. Not to great craft brew standards, but passable. The food is of that same standard.

Nice place with moderate prices and great atmosphere and good beer. Just stopped in to watch the Michigan State game and had a wonderful time.

“Convenient to the Tigers and Lion games”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

We were promptly served before our games (we arrived 3 hours before). We had the Philly cheesesteak and the Door County salad and both were enjoyed. Hubby was happy with the 1529 Ipa The place became standing room only the closer out got to game time. Price was average for a bar. Cool atmosphere.

“Quick pints”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Stopped in pre-game for a quick pint. Based on reviews I've seen elsewhere, I was expecting a bigger tap selection. We were relegated to the upstairs bar due to the pre-game rush, which was unfortunate. Tried the 1491 Local IPA [did not enjoy it], the Detroit Dwarf [also sub-par] and a Raspberry Cider [decent but nothing special]. Did not try any of the food, although the nachos looked appetizing. I would probably try this place again although I suppose it's recommended to reserve in advance - I was told a couple times by different wait staff that you're pretty screwed if you show up without one on a game day.
