Detroit: Motor City Brewing Works

Motor City Brewing Works, an institution in Detroit since 1994, pays homage to its roots with salvaged equipment and scraps from the city’s industrial era. But really, how’s the beer? Its brews are unfiltered, unpasteurized, and definitely natural. With a lineup of seasonal and "flagship beers" (plus wine, "elixirs" (mash-ups of wine and grape brandy), and sodas), the brewery and tap room are definitely worth the visit.

Beer to Try: The Nut Brown Ale

For a brown ale, the Motor City offering is full of roasted malts, plus American aromatic hops, for a nutty character and a malty nose.
