There are plenty of places for an apartment-ite to grab a beer in Detroit, but sometimes you get tired of having the same varieties paraded in front of you wherever you go. One place providing original beer is the Royal Oak Brewery, which brews their own cool, refreshing beers on site, and pairs it with delicious food for a great experience. If you're looking for a change from the everyday alcohol, then take a trip down to this brewery and restaurant, where you're sure to find something to sink your teeth into.
The brewery offers a number of different varieties, from English-style ales to German-style lagers, and has won many awards over the years for their efforts. Fans of Bavarian wheat beers can try their Fourth Street Wheat, while those looking for something a bit sweeter can try out Poppy's Porter, with just a hint of chocolate. Those in the mood for an Indian pale ale should try their Royal Pride IPA, while their Brewhouse ESB gives drinkers a refreshingly British-style taste. Don't forget their most popular flavor, the Northern Light, a pale ale that the customers can't get enough of.
The perfect compliment to one of their delicious ales or lagers is something from their extensive food menu. You can start with some flash-fried calamari, brewery quesadillas, their ruby rare tuna, or their Blarney Stones, corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss fried in rye and caraway bread crumbs. You can also start off with some delicious soups or salads. When it comes to main courses, there are a number of options, but a good place to start is with their Brewery Favorites section. It includes things as varied as Fish and Chips, Louisiana Jambalaya, Beef Bourguignonne, Bayou Steak Pizza, as well as numerous others. Make sure to save room for one of their delicious desserts, including fried twinkies, grilled banana splits, or their specialty root beer float.
Apartment-ites looking for something a bit more original in their beer-houses need only look to Royal Oak Brewery, which has been pumping out some of the best beer in Detroit for ages, and have been satisfying customers for just as long.
