Original Gravity in Milan, MI – Now Open!

I got the call yesterday from Brad Sancho letting me know Monroe County’s only brewery was now open for business. I called a few friends and headed up right after work.

The place looks awesome and the beer is excellent. The patio area is going to be a great summer hangout, complete with the long picnic tables straight from Leopold Bros in Ann Arbor.

Right now, Brad said they don’t have the food (sandwich’s) ready for serving, but will in a couple of weeks. He gave me the list of sandwich’s they’re going to be serving, and I was drooling after reading it. The first one I’m going to try is the BBQ Bologna. Others include: Buffalo Chicken, Rosemary Ham and Provolone, Smoked Turkey, Ham and Cheese, Pastrami Reuben, Pastrami, Turkey and Guacamole, Italian, Veggie, Grilled Cheese, Nutella and Banana and Peanut Butter and Jam. All sandwiches served on deli style panini bread and include chips and a pickle. Drooling yet?!

The Beers! I almost forgot. There are four choices right now, and Brad plans on brewing some experimental batches to test out. For example, when he opened Saturday, he had a keg of his Belgian with orange tic-tacs added to it. The beer tasted so good, the folks that were there blasted through it, and didn’t save any for us! The lineup now includes: Belgian, Bitter, Porter and an Amber. I had a tough time picking my favorite, but I really liked the Belgian and the Amber. The best bet is to try a sampler to find out which one is your favorite. If you really like one, you can buy an Original Gravity growler for $12 and refill it on your next visit for $8.

The hours are currently 3 p.m. to 11 p.m., but in a couple weeks, will shift to 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Hope to see you all there!

  1. I really enjoyed the Porter. Next time I go I am grabbing a growler of it. The Belgian is a close second.

    I want to add it has a great atmosphere. They also have kid games for the kid in you and your kids. That is one thing nice about micro-breweries is that they are typically kid friendly. OG is definitely in that category.

  2. I went up last night and must say that the place definitely has potential! It was really interesting to talk to the owner a little bit about his equipment, and his 10-gallon homebrew system to brew “special batches”. I do wish they had some more beer selections, but as Bradn said, the last thing you have time to do when opening a new brewery is brew beer.

    I’ll probably be back in the area in a couple weeks, and am already planning on stopping by again.

  3. So far, so good!
    how cool is it that Milan has this place. Please support them. Keep it a place where you can take the kids and play Yahtzee AND have a beer! Keep it smoke free and I will be there! Cheers!
