For the craft.

For Ann Arbor.

About Us

We’re meddlers and experimenters, beer geeks and craft cocktail purveyors, friendly faces with discerning palettes. We’ve been thrilled for some time to offer a great selection of craft beer from all over. But we have a larger mission these days: to be much more than just a cozy taproom to imbibe at. We’ve truly become obsessed with fostering an approachable environment that celebrates progressive ideas, friendship, and of course, tasty drinks of ALL kinds. Cheers.

We’re open on Sunday, from 12 pm to 11 pm, Monday through Thursday, from 3 pm to midnight, and Friday and Saturday, from 11 am to 2 am. 

Please join us for our Chad Tough Foundation Weekend Benefit!

Chad Carr was an incredible young kid who fought an inoperable brain tumor known as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) for 14 months. Cancer is the number one disease killer of children in America, and long-term DIPG survivors total less than 1%. We want to do it big for Chad Carr and the foundation.

From February 23rd through the 25th, we’ll be having raffles and silent auctions of some really cool items, as well as charity kegs, with all proceeds going to the Chad Tough Foundation. In addition, $50 from every Drinking Club Membership sold will also go the foundation. Raffles are only available in-house, but silent auction items are available online here. Let’s make this a fantastic weekend for an awesome cause!

"Unforgettable Experience"

Stopped at Beer Grotto while I was in town travelling, it was an unforgettable experience that I still tell my friends about.

"They Always Have New Beers"

Love how they always have new beers on. Rarely do I visit and they have the same beer on tap as my last visit. I have found many new favorites due to their staff helping me decide on something different.

"If you like beer, then this place is for you"

If you like beer, then this is place for you in Ann Arbor. Great selection of Craft Beer, and a constantly changing selection of drafts. Staff were friendly, knowledgable, and went out of their way to describe the beers. Prices were very reasonable. Great outdoor area to sit and watch the world go buy.

"Feels like home here"

Good vibes all around. Went here for a beer waiting for an appointment in aa. Came back after for 3 more. Feels like home. Great people work here. Nice work beer grotto! Check this place out. Great outdoor seating too!
