Alas, the place where I was finally able to try Schlenkerla Fastenbier on tap! Cool place, friendly service. Nice tap list, constantly rotating. Really good food, too. They often throw brewery specific events with food pairings that are outrageously good & lots of fun. Prices are a tad on the steep side, but given the location, that’s to be expected. Overall a must-stop for people nearby.
One of my favorite places in Detroit. It’s a nice cross between a drinking hall, a pub, and a sports bar with an excellent beer selection and tasty food. It’s more often than not busy, regardless of the night of the week - so much so, that parking can be a royal pain - but it’s almost always worth the wait. Sometimes, the servers can get a bit behind when it’s busy, but what restaurant doesn’t have that problem? I guess the minor complaint is that by 8pm, it’s always busy.

Really enjoyed my visit here. Big front room with lots of tables, but our booth was tucked away in the back, so it was quieter. Lots of rotating taps with an impressive variety among them. Great soup, good food. Also some good scotch.
It was really crowded when I went (a couple nights before Christmas) and as such it took awhile for the bartender to get my drink order. Also had to wait quite awhile to be seated at a table with a few friends. However, the beer selection was superb and the food was top notch, so I can forgive those other minor complaints, which hopefully were only specific to that particular night.
Visited on a busy Saturday night, nice open space with tables and a decent size bar where we sat. TVs had also pinball machines in the back. Staff were nice and had reasonable beer knowledge. Good tap list, I had three Victory beers I hadn’t had before. Good mix of internationals, Michigan micros (hop slam) and US micros. They do flights. Good beer destination in Metro Detroit.
