on my third trip to ann arbor, dinner at the grizzly peak brewing company was my forth visit to a brewpub in this fantastic town. i had planned on lunch at grizzly peak during my june trip here - but it was closed for renovations at the time. no problem, because the blue tractor bbq & brewery was, literally, just a few doors down the street.
but grizzly peak was definitely worth the wait - if only for the elk burger that i had to go along with my 9 beer sampler - the full flight, so to speak (samplers varied from 5 to 9 selections). my selection included not only the ginger beer, but a gravity pulled ginger beer infused w/peppercorns (my favorite of the bunch).
here are the nine i sampled:
gizzly peak pale ale
bear paw porter
blah blah ginger beer
anniversary black ale
county cork's irish stout
hms sheerwater ipa
gravity pulled ginger beer w/peppercorns.
as mentioned, the ginger beer infused w/peppercorns was my favorite, followed by the regular blab blah ginger beer. the novelty of ginger beer added to my interest - i had only tried this stuff once, years ago. the rest of the selections were good - among them, the pale ale and ipa were excellent.
in addition to the beer selection - the food was great. i couldn't pass up the elk burger - again mostly for the sheer novelty. but that burger was fantastic!
don't pass up a visit here.
