Good beer and food
Several good beer choices and a solid menu with something for everyone. Definitely a good place to eat and drink while in town, especially if you are going to a Tigers or Lions game nearby.

Great beer brewery and restaurant. Went there to grab some lunch and beer. They have a small patio seating and a nice indoor seating with the brewers. Ordered the Detroit Burger which came with seasoned fries and a 1529 IPA. The burger was cooked great and the beer was good. Overall, good place for some lunch and grab a beer.

Such a great place to go to before a sporting event (Red Wings, Tigers, Lions, Pistons) to get a quick bite and some drinks.

*Plan Accordingly* We decided to go here before a Red Wings game because we've been walking past it for ages and have never had time to stop in. Luckily, we made the effort to get to the Z Lot early so w

Wow! I had the cajun chicken pasta and it was amazing! My family had burgers and chicken strips, and they were happy with their food too.

Saturday downtown was packed with every restaurant having a 1.5 - 2 hour wait. Even with the wait, Detroit Brewing Company was efficiently seating guests. We had a last minute change to our party size from 2 to 6 people. The manager, Jeff, was more than accommodating and his team took great care of us. Quick service and the food was ... read more

Stopped in on a Friday night after catching a show at Detroit Opera House across the street. Grabbed seats right away at the bar. Bartender was friendly, let us sample a few brews.

Was encouraged to visit this restaurant with the birthday club coupon, you get a $15 meal "credit" if you sign up online.

As a party of three on a Sunday afternoon, it was not too crowded. This could be because there was a football game and something going on at the theater. We were seated immediately.

LOVED this place! While on a quick 24 hour trip to Detroit we stumbled on this place and enjoyed it so much the first time we popped back in before we left town. The beer is quite tasty and the food was great as well! Cool older building and super convenient if you're headed  to a baseball game.

Brewery will always have about 6-8 taps of just solid brews. Usually nothing crazy or fancy, but always solid. Food follows the same. Normally stick with the burger section and is never disappointed.

Just okay. For being a beer company, they only had maybe ~10 beers on draft and then we ordered one and they were out. Not sure if this is normal for downtown Detroit or not.

We went on a Tuesday night so it wasn't crowded at all. Service was prompt at first, but after we asked for a minute to look over the menu, we waited 10 or 15 before someone came back to take our order.

The food was definitely a bit on the pricy side, about 20% high
