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 I’ve 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.

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 I’ve 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 there’s 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.
Good place with good beer. They generally have a nice selection of beers and I almost always can find a few that I will enjoy. Their menu is limited abut you can also bring in your own food if you so desire. They also support homebrewers and you will see something call the rat pad, which is their current beer that they helped a homebrewer brew on the premises. I have found a few of those that have been outstanding. As far as their reular beers, I often enjoy the Sacred Cow IPA, the Jackhammer Old Ale as well as the Olde #22.
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.
Had a delicious esresspo stout made with local coffee shop coffee. This is what makes this place great: very comfy atmosphere and dedication to the community brewpub feel. They were out of many of their offerings but the stout and blonde were fantastic.
Great spot to hang out, especially in the beer garden.
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.
The picture to the left is of the Ann Arbor location and not the Ypsilanti location. Called the Corner Brewery but I expected it to be at a corner location in a downtown location not off by itself in a neighborhood type location. Appears to be an old factory. Place is huge compared to the Ann Arbor location which I tried to stop at tonight but it was packed. I walked in to an industrial type building that is a big open space. Plenty of room at the bar which is a nice sight for a solo traveler. 8 beers on tap including 3 special which was nice. All 3 beer were pretty good especially the IIPA. I had the Beef and Cheddar melt which was decent. Also had the hummas with pita bread which was average. Lots of vegan items if that is your thing. Nicely decorated and had a real cool rack for hanging the Mug Club mugs. Overall I liked the relax vibe this place was putting off. Would visit again
