Ambiance: A nice place with an old style pub feel to it...nothing spectacular but not a dump either
Service: Semi Decent, bartender was semi quick and knowledgeable about the beers.
Selection: A decent selection of the styles, had about 10 beers on tap but the quality was average at best
Value: Slightly over priced for the lack of quality but par for the local breweries
Overall: A nice place but the beers were barely average, place is 4th place of 4 in downtown AA.
My go to place in town for a brew pub. Serves solid beers, always a couple of cask beers. Good ales. They do tend to English style which I like a lot. They do 6 standard with 2-3 rotators. I really like the food. The rotators may may be okish or absolute outstanding. The rotating taps, the very good food, and ambiance keep me coming back. Fun place, if you live in town the mug club is a great deal. Recently opened the old german pub outside and around the corner.
Went here for a wedding anniversary. Service was spectacular. The beer was decent. Food was hit or miss.

Stopped in on the way to RBSG with my brother. This was a quick stop because of the fact that so many places are right there The place was packed with college kids but we managed to get a spot at the bar. The house beers were pretty middle of the road.They have a number of styles and plenty of house taps so there’s that at least. Our flight was a grand total of eight beers. The service was nice but maybe a bit slow. We didn’t try the food and the prices were reasonable on the beer. If you can’t stand loud bars then avoid this place on game days, or any Thursday-Saturday.
Unfortunately, the beer is not particularly my style. Tend to lean english, and thus lack some character. There are some good ones, you just have to pick carefully. The ’grizzly den’ is a bar section on the side of the restaurant that gets to be a whole different place late night - but honestly, the deals get better and the ambiance more what I’m comfortable with. I don’t choose to go there often, but if I end up meeting people there I’m always happy enough with the offerings, etc. The tables where the bartender serves you are the most fun.
Ambiance was interesting, big woody cabin feel to it. Service ws pretty good with bartenders willing to talk about beers and knowledgable about the product. Selection was good, with a few decent beers but nothing crazy. Was able to find the bottle of La Roja that I wanted to buy at JP, but were out of. Beers were fairly priced for their quality. Worth gonig to if in Ann Arbor.
Grizzly Peak is my go to brewpub in Ann Arbor. Honestly, it is the best burger I have ever had. The beers generally rotate, so you can usually get something new each time you head there. The beer is generally a little flat sometimes, though.
If you head to GP, you absolutely must have the soft pretzels. They do provide flights of beer to try, and I would recommend this, as I think the quality varies quite a bit. All in all, a real fun place to be.
If you show up after 6 pm on a Friday or Saturday, expect to wait an hour or two for a table. They don’t take reservations for any parties under 6, so if you’re worried just bring along a crowd so you have a table.
Decent brewpub in Ann Arbor right near campus, but it’s much more about the food than the beer. Their beer selection is pretty average, as is the quality of their beer, but the food and service are good (try a pizza!), and it’s a good place to go after a football game (GO BLUE!).
