  • Great beer oasis

    Great Baraboo is a lively, family-style microbrewery in the heart of Budweiser country. There are four permanent selections on tap, with a fifth tap reserved for rotating specialty brews.
  • Dark and lovely
  • Dark and lovely

    The perfect place to meet a blind date; even plain Janes look mysterious and alluring in the shadowy, ethereal lighting. Ultra hip – but never "trendy" – this Hamtown original is an out-and-out clubhouse for cool cats. Tremendous booths, pool table, jukebox and lots of laid-back style.
  • Old school sports
  • Old school sports

    In the shadow of the old Tiger Stadium, this place was a sports bar years before it was cool. The old fashioned pressed-tin ceiling and sports memorabilia everywhere add to the atmosphere. Plus, the hamburgers can't be beat.
  • Game between games
  • Game between games

    Iridescence is the Motor City Casino's elegantly decorated attempt to "break the mold" of casino restaruants by focusing on game and fish (Wild boar, Muscovy duck, Chilean sea bass) rather than more traditional steakhouse fare. The entrees are unique, tasty, and show special attention to detail, but the desserts are the real showstoppers.
  • It's about the beer
  • It's about the beer

    Dozens of beer styles from around the world brewed in back. No smoking, no food to speak of, no TV, but plenty of friendly conversation along with the sipping. Tours available.
  • Friendly on tap

    Simply the friendliest place in Ferndale to park your butt on a stool and drink away some hours, surrounded by the easy banter that comes only from a true neighborhood watering hole. Danny's is best enjoyed in your most comfortable lounging garb so that you can realx and enjoy the area's best Irish beer on tap.
  • Homebrew heaven

    Michigan's first brew-on-premises has a small bar with six rotating selections on tap and many bottled beers. They have kegs, bottles and growlers to go, and homebrewing supplies. The friendly staff can help you brew your own beer and they'll even clean up your mess.
  • Brotherly love

    The first bar to open in the city that now has a beer joint on almost every corner, 7 Brothers retains all that is great about Hamtramck's celebration of tossing one back at the neighborhood bar. Better even than $1.25 Pabst and a pool table is the gregarious George, who's been behind the bar for 23 years.
