My feelings on this place are conflicted. Itís the closest brewery to where I live, so Iíve frequented it for awhile. Food is always good; never had bad food there. Theyíve changed their menu a few times, so any "not as good" items often get removed, so they seem conscious of their food. My issue? They changed brewers. Last brewer had an awesome sour altbier--thatís changed. He used to do great seasonals we looked forward to (like the pumpkin, or the apple). Not anymore. Service is always very good here, and I love the cigar smell from the humidor they have onsite. However, recent visits show the place is getting a bit run down--I canít believe theyíd let ripped up booth seats stay around for so long.

Visited for lunch on a weekend, place was empty except for one other party so service was excellent. Bartender was very friendly, food was good had a burger. Had a sampler, they had a guest pils- good, an apple streudel dessert beer -9% that would be great on ice cream, an average ipa moderate hop, an okish Schwartz beer - dark helmet. May the Schwartz be with you! The best was the brown ale which was nice. They had an alt that was sour oops. What it was doing on tap I donít know.
Stopped by while hitting breweries in the area. Nice on the outside with a pretty decent location for HWY use. Very dated feel on the inside. Ordered a sampler, and was not impressed by anything. Did not get a warm feeling from Copper Canyon, and I for sure will not be back in the future.
Good beer, but not a large selection. Iíve never seen this place busy at night. I used to come here with my family on Saturday evenings when in the area because I knew I could get in without waiting 45 minutes for a table, yet still drink some decent beer that I canít get anyplace else. However, Iíve found the service to be so consistently poor that I quit going. The food is passable, but a bit pricey for the quality. The pizza is enjoyable, though. Iíve generally enjoyed the beer, but there are better places in the area.
Easy to find location next to hotel. Nice up scale location. Bar stools on right with table on left. Patio in the front. Good sample set. Freindly staff with good discusion with connect with brewer. had the calamari app which was good portion and better tahn average. Nice visit.
Great beer, excellent food and great service. The bartender-waiter talked to us about the beer and menu options. After we badmouthed pilsners a bit, he showed us a pilsner can taste good when he gave us a sample of his pils brew. A bit pricey for a microbrewery, which is the one thing holding me back from being a regular. Besides the steep price tag, it is a great place. Atmosphere is a bit dressy and less casual.
I spent a week in Southfield on business and lodged in the hotel adjacent to this place. How convenient! This place feels as though it is a franchise, although as far as I know, it isnít. The food and drink offerings were good enough to bring me back several evenings for dinner, although Iím not sure if that would have been the case had I not been next-door.
