Downriver- a great beer destination!

We already have Fort Street Brewery and The Oak Cafe. Add to that The Rockery in Wyandotte. Recently sold to new owners (and cleaned up!), and run on a daily basis by the lovely and smart Melanie.

The (new) Rockery boasts 4 taps- 3 Michigan taps (currently Celis White, Arcadia Hop Rocket & Arcadia London Porter), and Blatz  "for the old customers." And, about 40 Michigan bottles, including the hard-to-get Kuhnhenn 4th Dementia and Jolly Pumpkin iO Saison. Here's the beer menu. It's inexpensive, and they have a special price for a "Michigan Beer Bucket" ( 5 Michigan brews, with the exclusion of a couple of brands, for $14. Basically almost what you would pay for the same beers in a retail store. A fantastic deal!) They have a nice selection of imports too. And live music on Fridays.

The kitchen sticks to the basic burgers, chicken strips and the like, though all the ingredients are sourced locally.

The Rockery will be hosting beer tasting events on a regular basis, the first being held on Wednesday April 6, from 7-11PM. It's an IPA tasting, $20 cost, and Mr Cicerone and I will be helping guide customers through the selections.
