Beer, Beer, Beer ...
Many local in-house brewed beers are offered here. The overall atmosphere is a bit dark and dated to me ...

This place is hands down the best! The staff is laid back and chill and the beer is amazing! Even got to try the tangerine IPA before it even made the menu! We will make sure we come back to this place every visit to Detroit! Charlie was a great bartender. Thanks man! Can't wait to see this business grow! Wouldn't mind seeing the loc ... read more

The food was good.  Service was really good too.  Her name is Mikaela.  Menu options are better than just "bar food", but not way out there, you know?  I had the Santa Fe Grilled Chicken Salad.  I would ask for dressing on the side-but still very good.  My husband had the Jambalaya.  It comes with rice and 1/2 of a small cheese pizza ... read more

My burger was great my fries were cold but they did bring out fresh hot fries service was great but they round up so if your bill is $14.36 you give $15 to pay it you get no change. That didn't settle good.

So I recently went to DBC for food and drinks...beer btw is top notch but the service wasn't great.

Not your typical brew pub. Detroit Beer Company has an impressive number of food options, including offerings for vegetarians and vegans. My wife had a grilled salmon entree, which was served on a bed of sautéed greens and with a creamy risotto. I opted for...More ... read more

Nice place, decent beer, okay menu for a brewery, decent service. All in all this is a nice place but nothing special. I personally thought the beer was just okay. The "Opening Day IPA" was lacking some spice. The "Local 1529 IPA" was a little better. The "Broadway Light" was probably the best one of the bunch. It was a nice lager th ... read more

Good beer
The beers were solid that we tried. I didn’t overly love the atmosphere and vibe of the place would probably sit at the bar if I came again. Food menu looked good although we were just in for a few beers.

Went here for the beer and was not disappointed but the food and service were just as good. Great little place within walking distance of the stadiums and reasonably priced. The Brigand Steak and Fish & Chips were both excellent options.

This was a nice joint to pop into before walking to the Fox for a concert. Upstairs it was busy. When the bartender saw we were waiting a bit too long for service, he came right over to take care of us. My burger was good, and my better half enjoyed her salad more than she does at most other places. We will be back for another IPA.

The brews are alright, and the nachos were better than the pretzel. It's got sort of a cool exposed bricks and tanks thing going on, which I guess is pretty normal for breweries these days. For whatever reason, the cheese that came with the pretzel was completely solid and not really capable of being dipped into, so not sure what hap ... read more
