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!
