I was a little hesitant about this place given prior ratings (and even skipped it on a past trip to AA), but this turned out to be a great place. They have about 6 regulars on tap and 3 seasonals. I got to try 4 of them, the regular IPA, a seasonal single-hopped IPA, oatmeal stout, and the regular pilsener. All were quite excellent. The food is great too (I had the pulled pork sandwich - very tasty!!). The only thing I didn’t like is they have a cold strip for keeping your beer cold but it freezes the run off from the pour. A small point though. Overall, a fantastic stop. The beer is great, the food is great. Stop here in addition to the other great AA brewpubs. I can’t wait to be back!
Pretty nice place, cool look inside with barnwood on the walls. Ordered the 6 beer sampler (which was all of the beers they have) and split it with my dad. They were decent beers, nothing to rave about, but I didn’t want to toss them either. The food was good, and I liked how everything was housemade. It was a good experience, and worth a stop if you are hopping breweries in Ann Arbor.
Couldn’t disagree more with the general sentiment about the beers at this place. Thought everything I tried was well-made and very tasty. Didn’t get the barbecue but my chicken Cobb salad was just fine with me. Not a stop to be overlooked in Ann Arbor.
I wasn’t expecting this place to be too great, but I was pleasantly surprised. I tried the sample tray, which included 6 different beers. The beers were pretty decent for a brewpub, a lot better than I was expecting. I really enjoyed that bbq here, and my dad was a big fan of all the tractor parts that decorated the walls
OMG - absolutely succulent BBQ brisket plate with fresh green beans fried with carmelized onions and bacon. The food is fantastic, the beer is better than average, and more mainstream than the other downtown Ann Arbor brewers. Easy city ramp parking nearby, in hoppin’ downtown Ann Arbor. Even has some streetside outdoor dining. If you are looking for great food AND a decent beer in Ann Arbor, this is a great place to go.
A friendly brewpub with an enthusiastic and friendly staff, from the greeter to the bartender to the waitress. I had the 6-beer sampler, and liked the porter and the amber best, but overall the beers were average. Food was very good, and the sauces (4) were excellent. A good place to return to.
Ambiance: A nice long bar with some brewing equipment behind it, seats about 20 people and tables all around, plus some downstairs seating
Service: Bartenders were decent, efficient and knowledgeable
Selection: Decent variety of the various styles, had about 10 different beers that were average-decent, nothing earth shattering but nothing boring either
Value: Decent prices for the quality, weren’t over charging like other local places were.
Overall, a decent place with some decent beers, probably the best of the AA area that we hit
Great spot for dinner upstairs; plenty of room, pretty good food, and enough beer to find one you’ll be happy with. Pretty damn good barbecue in particular, and I personally tend to favor their darker beers. Service, in terms of the bar, depends on who you get, but it’s usually good. Downstairs is more of a bar scene, and a bit harder to get served late night. I stop in from time to time to try their one-and-dones and eat some nachos, and I leave happy.
