Reviews

Great, friendly staff in an awesome building with lots of character...but the beer is bad. I mean, if you're a Budweiser fan...you'll love this spot. But if you enjoy good craft beer, this really isn't the spot for you.

There are so many things on the menu that I want to try, but every time I go, I still end up getting the cubano because it is amazing. The beer and seasoned fries are also delicious. The staff has always been friendly.

Delicious chicken sandwich. The fries were also very good no ketchup needed.

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.

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. The atmosphere here is family friendly, but would be a good place for a date or night out with friends. But, just sayin', get the pasta!!! Good selection of food at pretty reasonable prices ... read more

Took my family here and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The staff was friendly, the place was clean and welcoming. Service was quick and the drinks were sooo good. I had the Collusion draft.

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

Downtown Detroit Footballer Haven
One of many bars in downtown Detroit....especially before a football game....and a great place for craft brews and good food!!!! What a lively spot with terrific servers and very friendly customers. TERRIFIC EXPERIENCE!!!!

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. Was going to try "hair of the dog" burger with an egg and bacon on it. They ran out of burger patties though! My second choice was the ... read more

Haven’t been here since when
Haven’t been here since when Detroit had the super bowl. Forgot how this is a pretty cool place. Will be back for sure. Had a pomegranate sour beer that was really good. I’m a great location prior to Tigers and Lions games.

We stopped by to grab a drink one night, being lucky enough to grab a table.  We had two flights of their brews along with a pretzel.  The beers were pretty good and decently priced.  The pretzel was surprisingly fresh and flavorful, the mustard proving to be a perfect pair with it.  Despite being busy, we were served quickly.  Overa ... read more

Fantastic Establishment for a Selection of different Beer's and Great Food!!! The Pepperoni Pizza is cooked to Perfection, and split with a co-worker, $7 bucks rocks for a pie.. P.S. Please Add, The BLANCO SHRIMP LINGUINI back onto your menu full time, or I will have no other choice but to withdrawal my 5 star rating. And lower it ... read more

We stopped in before a Tiger game as it’s just a few blocks away. Love the old “pub” atmosphere. Good selection of food at pretty reasonable prices.

My wife and I found Detroit Beer on the Internet. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the grilled cheese and tomato soup entree. Delicious. In addition I had the Detroit Ale and Vienna ( I think).

Went here to eat before the Tigers game (within walking distance). Great atmosphere. Great service. Eating upstairs by the windows is the best spot; you get a nice breeze and great street view of fun things happening outside. The Tigers Claw (hard seltzer) is great tasting. And, this is at my top two places to have the best burgers i ... read more

Pleasant Outdoor Seating
Easily accessible via the People Mover. Walking distance from Comerica Park and the Opera House. Pleasant outdoor seating in warm weather. Solid menu of sandwiches, burgers, fries, and sides. Good service. Fair prices. I will return.

Cool little brewery in the middle of downtown. The beer is good, but the food is what shines here. We had tasty calimari and chorizo Mac and cheese. The wait staff was friendly, but the greeter at the front seemed to be having a bad day.
