Best of Detroit 2019: Drinks

Want to nibble one? Have a smell from the barrel? Tip a few? Be out on the roof? Good news, friends, because the Motor City is a drinking town. If beer is your pick of poison, brewpubs abound — Batch Brewing Co. is Wayne County's finest, Kuhnhenn Brewing Co. is the best in Macomb County, The Royal Oak Brewery is Oakland County's top dog, and Wolverine State Brewing Co. is the best Washtenaw County has to offer. The best Michigan beer comes from Founder Brewing Co., and you can wet your whistle at their Detroit taproom, which opened a couple years ago. Who knew? Michigan also has a top-notch tequila maker with Teeq Tequila. And Vivio's has your best bloody Mary — you know, for the next morning, when you need some of the hair from the dog that bit you.
