It’s fall, y’all! Although we have said goodbye to our beloved summer months – there’s still so much more to see and do in the city. If you’re looking to get out and (safely) explore the city of Detroit, take an adventure to the best Detroit breweries. Indulge in a seasonal beverage, sample a creative sour, or grab your favorite draft and take in Detroit in the fall. And if you don’t know what your favorite might be? Grab a flight and try them all!
If you want to try the most unique, locally-brewed options, you need to make the trip downtown. As a bonus, most Detroit breweries have in-house kitchens where you can order dishes that go hand in hand with your favorite beverage. If you’re not comfortable visiting indoors just yet, let’s not forget you can now get alcoholic beverages to-go in Michigan. That’s right – grab these beverages then sip and savor the rich flavors in the comfort of your own home.
