Visited The Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti for the first time this past weekend (now more commonly referred to as the Arbor Brewing Microbrewery...I think they could have done a better job with that name...lol!) immediately following a stop at the original Arbor Brewing in downtown Ann Arbor . This is a great building and a great space. In addition to a very large taproom there is also a very sizable and pleasant beer garden. My friend and I each had a number of flight sized beers. I loved the Buzzsaw American IPA (which Iíve had at their Bangalore, India location), the Summer Camp Saison, the Ypsi Gypsi Session IPA, and the Sacred Cow IPA. The Mack Island Fudge was also noteworthy. I can see this would be a great place to hangout when there was a crowd...especially in the beer garden out back. When we visited there were a couple of shiny new tanks out in the parking lot waiting to get installed...one was a large fermenter. Make sure any visit to Ann Arbor area includes a stop here in Ypsilanti.

Huge place. Nice chill vibe on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Lots of regulars as evidenced by the names on some of the chairs and the roughly 600-700 mugs I could see. Comfortable with some couches, fireplace, books. Bottles of sours available but they were pricy. Draft beers were well priced and solid. Service was friendly but somewhat slow. Nice place.

A nice large space with a nice area to sit out back as well. A good selection or Arbor brewing beers. Service is usually good and staff is knowledgeable. Food is nothing special.

eh. Not very impressive. Located in kind of a shady area, rude bartender. Go to Ann Arbor for better places and drink better beer than ABC brews.

Large space both with both indoor and outdoor seating. Friendly servers. The beer is very good overall. Some styles better than others. Generally, the IPAs seemed very solid. A great stop in Ypsilanti. Great prices on beer.

Went during Wednesday happy hour. Bar was pretty full, but most of the tables were empty. Prices were pretty good normally, and happy hour means the medium costs the same as the small (for the beers available in a medium). Had a couple beers, both of which were at least as good as the best Arbor beers Iíve had. There were only six beers on tap when I was there, but a seventh was being tapped, and it looked like they had space for 10 different beers. Sixers and growlers are available to go, and thereís a decent-looking menu as well. Definitely a nice place.

Note: Rebranding as Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery as of December 2013, but keeping the painted "Corner Brewery" on the building and some merchandise.

Big open room, staff are cool, beer is similar to Arbor. When Iíve been there I ordered out food, they are serving some on site. Decent place to head to after summer beer fest always a very good crowd then.

A giant brick-walled room was aesthetically pleasing, but it simultaneously caused the beer hall to be very loud due to the hard surfaces reflecting sound, making it somewhat difficult to hear my friends. The atmosphere was very laid back, if you want a beer, you just go up to the bar and get one, the wait staff generally just pick up empty glasses and donít really get you drinks. Drinks are generally ordered as a liter or a half liter, which is quite neat, as a liter is practically a bucket of beer. KI went during Oktoberfest, so the building was dressed up in the related attire with German folk music being played and wait staff walking around liderhosen. Overall, the beer list may be short, but the beer they do is done well, IPA drinkers like the IPA, stout drinkers like the stout, and light beer drinkers like the blonde. The place is a bit loud for my taste, but the beer is so good iím willing to overlook the noise. The crowd appears to be college graduates or graduate students with a few elderly and middle aged folks.

Nice, large outdoor seating area. Tucked off the main path / industrial --- again, great place to get a beer with people who want beer. Food was fine, didnít eat too much. Selection was good.
