Batch Brewing Company which opened early in 2015, is located in Detroit’s Corktown community, just a few blocks from Michigan Ave. First of all, menu is described as “handcrafted scratch kitchen pub cuisine” and it couldn’t be more spot on. For a small brewery, Batch Brewing Company has a pretty solid food menu. You can order a little bit of everything with options ranging from Grilled Romaine Ceasar Salad to Smoked Whitefish Spread. Want something a little more classic brewery feel? You can expect Pub Pretzels, Nachos, and the Cubano Sandwich.
I tried one of the sour beers, of course.
That’s the Way She Goes, Eh? Sour, Gose. 4.6% ABV. Sour, light, and refreshing. Perfect! Pasty of the Day: Tender, lamb blended with mediterranean spices. It was very flavorful with a hint of spice. The pasty itself was flaky on the outside, but warm and buttery on the inside. Finally, I loved that these pies were easy to eat, handheld, and perfect for dipping.
Grilled Fish Tacos: Pineapple, mango salsa, cabbage, and Chipotle creama. Super fresh and light. The fish was fresh and flaky. Crunchy cabbage complimented the bright, spicy salsa. Lastly, the Chipotle crema was the perfect addition to tie everything together. The only bad thing was that these tacos were very juicy. As a result, the taco leaked and the tortilla got soggy.Step up to the counter to place your order, then relax with a beer while its brought out to your table. There are no servers, just food runners and bartenders. I am seeing more places adopting this type of service and it works in a casual setting like Batch Brewing Company. Choose from a community of board games to play while either on the patio or inside the brewery. Overall, Batch Brewing Company is a good spot with a decent vibe. Additionally, you can catch the many events at Batch Brewing Company including Happy Hour Yoga happening August 8th at 6 PM. Rent out Batch Brewing Company for your next event. We all know baby showers and birthdays are more fun when they are at a brewery!
Especially relevant, Michelle is in town from Denver and I am super excited to take her around the city. First, we will be at the Gabriel Hall pop up at Nancy Whiskey tomorrow night (July 23rd) 6-9 PM. The pop up will feature DJ Skeez, a Detroit/New Orleans deejay. What’s on the menu? Po Boys! My long time friend Ederique Goudia has teamed up co-owner Dameon Gabriel to form the creole restaurant. This duo has plans to open their restaurant/venue in Detroit’s West Village in 2018.
