I visited this place on the pub cruiser and I was not disappointed. I especially loved their little mitten full of sample beers and I bought my favorite sweatshirt at this place. Good for lots of things!

Food was okay. Surprisingly (yay!!) they offer a vegan menu and GF options. Staff was friendly, and let us use the house phone to call a cab back to our hotel.

My wife and I recently enjoyed a lunch at Mitten Brewing Co. A very pleasant surprise. It was our first time there. Nice atmosphere with kind waitstaff. We each selected sample beers to try. We each had a Stromboli for which you can select three items to be on it along with the sauce you wish. A very nice way... More

After reading through various menus online we decided on The Mitten Brewing Company and we were quite pleased. The place was unexpectedly busy for 4:30 on a Saturday, and we were told that despite it being New Years Eve, that was normal. There is a large selection of beer, all crafted by TMBC, and with names like "Caught Looking" which... More

We went at 4 pm on a Saturday- packed- both floors. Put our name on the wait list and sat and didn't have to wait long. We went upstairs. Nice- both floors are loud but we were okay with that. 3-4 TVs. Nice menu. I'm a Guinness girl so I tried their nitro that had coconut in it- AWESOME!!! Had... More

Small place but we happened to get a seat at the bar which was cool. Didn't eat there but the nice lady sitting next to us ordered what looked like a type of Stromboli, a steak and cheese, and it smelled and looked FANTASTIC!!! Forgot the name of the stout we had but it was so good, we took home... More

Pizza sampler is a great option to sample all of the great combinations the Mitten has to offer. They have expanded their beer offerings and the ciders are very nice. Sit at the bar and learn a lot from the bartenders. You can also avoid the wait if you can find a spot at the bar.

It seems that many Michigan breweries (and there are many) are mostly located in touristy downtown areas with their hipster throwback chic. This place is in an actual neighborhood and while it is Hipster, it is genuinely so (can you be genuinely Hipster???). Dog-friendly if you eat outside. In October this was a little unusual because they did not have... More

Parking is limited but we arrived just as another couple was leaving so we were able to get a parking spot. The wait staff were friendly; the hostess, bartender, and server. There was historic Detroit Tigers and other baseball memorabilia displayed everywhere and the building itself was interesting. I heard it was an old fire station. The beer & pizza... More

We decided to stop in after reading good reviews on Mitten. We were seated upstairs and the bartender took care of us. We got six samples of beer which were only $1 each. Not bad. We also got the pizza flight were you pick 6 different types of 5" supreme pizzas that they put on a big wooden board. I... More
