I love coming here. I have been several times now. There is an enormous beer variety and I have yet to try a bad one. All of the food that I have tried there so far is highly complimentary to the variety of beer that they serve. The service could use a little bit of a change in the happy direction, but I would still highly recommend Fort Street Brewery.

I live downriver and was glad to see a brew pub opened here.
Have been going there off and on since it opened.
Getting more frustrated with this establishment. The food and beer are hit and miss, in my opinion. I get dis appointed when their beer and menu selection is deficient.
I brew my own beer, went to chef school in San Francisco and have worked in white table restaurants.
Our last visit was the last straw. When Doug sat us down, we asked for a "high top". He stated "REALLY". There was space and it was not busy. His next statement was, my wait staff will "bitch and moan" He reluctantly seated us where we requested to sit for a "cover" of four. Not a demanding request.
I said, Thank you for accommodating us. He had no response, and walked away, no eye contact.
This did effect my evening with my family and I unsubscribe to e-mails.
I will not return any time soon.
I hoped that they would have been more customer service focused.
I would have been reprimanded or fired for such behavior.
Get your shit together, Doug.

alright i didn't want to judge this place on my first time there which sucked so i went a few more times. out of four visits one was pretty good. the atmosphere is prolly the best attribute this place has. service is alright. i didn't see the wanna-be model b&tch workin the bar who likes to socialize more with other workers then get people drinks. but anywho service has been alright. went last night and was clearly disappointed. they only had four or five beers on tap which all to me are lame. my mom's bf tried a lincoln lager and said it tasted very skunky which isn't good. my gf tried the sarsaparilla (spelling?) and it tasted like a bud or bud light with the slightest bit of mug root beer poured into it. they had some other foo-foo beer which the owner/brewer loves to brew. food is a hit or miss. i went last time and got steak fajitas that were good. last night i ordered a burger medium and it came totally pink. i ordered a coke and it tasted funny. my gf and mother both tried it and told me to send it back. i also ordered a shot of makers and it was piss warm. my biggest beef with this place is the owner and brewer is a wanna-be ron jeffries from jolly pumpkin. it's hard for him to brew a solid beer and not add nutmeg and figs and b.s. to it. i don't wanna come off as an a$#hole but i'm good on this place. i'm calling this place to go under in two years. if not it's mostly staying alive as a restaurant and not as a brewery.
Example- purple gang and bag of hops were sold out. nothing crazy just solid brews. but if you want his b.s. juniper rye or something else with spices they'll have em for months on end.

The Fort Street Brewery was located on a busy street outside of Detroit. The dinning area included numerous low tops, high tops, and bar stools...very big area. There were big screens and Michigan sports flags hanging from the ceiling. The quality was good, the food was ok, the servise was great. The selection for beer was good, but I thought the menu was lacking a little. There was no pizza on the kids menu and the adult fair was standard bar fare. The value was ok, $32 for adult meal, kids meal, kids drink, and a sampler platter.

atmosphere is not so great - a typical sports bar feel and a lot of open space makes the place loud inside, even with just a few patrons hanging around watching the game. has far too many tvs and they all have some sort of game on. when will brewery owners figure out that not everyone wants to watch sports while drinking their beer?
food selection was good, but the quality was no so hot. i ordered the chips and gooey cheese which was good until the cheese got cold, and then the kobe sliders which were pretty good except for the english muffin they used as a bun. too much bread and not enough burger.
beer selection was decent, 6 taps i think. i had a belgian bread stout and hops to burn dipa - see my reviews. a few bonus points for almost always having something special on tap.
our waiter was friendly and fielded our questions with ease.
price seems on par with the quality, but nothing here really blew my sock off. just another run of the mill local brewpub.
