Stopped here in early January for dinner with a group of 7-8 people. Ordered the sample platter with 6 beers. Overall the beers were mediocre to OK, kind of thin, but not too bad. The IPA was their best offering in my opinion. Oatmeal stout was second, but this is a seasonal. Last year they had a Belgian-style pale ale, but I couldn't find it this time.
The food was awesome. One of the best filets I've had in a while, absolutely no complaints. Menu includes 4-5 steaks and 3-4 types of fish.
I don't really recommend the beers here, but for dinner not a bad stop.

Visited June 2011:
The other reviewers have pretty well described the place, so I won't go into that. I visited both during lunch and dinner and noted that the vibe of the place is average at best. It felt like a chain. I tried a few of the beers, but didn't take any notes, but noted that they were average, nothing special that would make me come back for. They only had 6 beers on tap, so not a huge variety of styles. Then there was the food. I had several meals here and not one of them was all that great. I got the fish sandwich one afternoon and the cook must have forgotten about it as it was way overdone. Same with the fries. I could go on, but no real need. Overall, an average place and serves average beers. Visit at your own risk.

Dropped in early on Cinco de Mayo for a few before heading to the MGM. I tried a Buffalo Jump Stout, it was a bit 'gritty', nothing spectacular.
I then opted for the 25 oz Devil's Peak IPA as my beer option for the Burger and Brew special. At $10 it is quite the value. A 1/2 angus burger, fries and a big 25 oz'er for the everyday low price of $10. The best bargain in the house. The burger was nice and juicy and the Devil's Peak was a nice hopppy companion to the combo.
They were not very busy, but it was about 5 o'clock. Most of the patrons were wearing ties, obviously happy hour.
They even have a 'free beer Tuesday', it was Monday, but that does sound interesting.
If you are visiting the area there is Hampton Inn right next door. I should have stayed there, I would have came back for a nightcap.
Big space, and outdoor seating was available. Cool place for a few, no complaints. I would definitely stop again.

Similarly styled to a Royal Oak Brewing or Rochester Mills for those who've been to these other Detroit-area locations. A very Starbucks-like interior makes for a nice, modern atmosphere, and the TVs in virtually every corner made me pleased that I didn't have to miss any of the Michigan game. Two pool tables in back, and one huge TV up front.
Beer selection is pretty average. They have 5 regular offerings, a few rotating taps, and a cask-conditioned ale. They were out of one or two of their brews when I was there, but the ones they did have were all pretty good. Not outstanding but good.
The manager was very polite and made a few beer recommendations before we sat down and came back to check on them later. The waiter was a really pleasant guy who was very knowledgable about the menu.
Not a bad spot. Its only real downside is the pricing. Beer is pretty cheap, but the food is about 10-15% more expensive than it should be on pretty much every item other than perhaps their pizzas.

I went here a few weeks ago on a business trip. I was a little apprehensive based on the reviews that I had seen here. People at work recommended the place but through discussion felt that they where not really into beer to much but decided to give it a try. The place is very nice on both the exterior and interior. Getting a seat was easy, it was about 5:15 and the place filled in during my dinner. Had a nice selection of brews but the waiter was somewhat of an idiot, kept talking like he new more about beer than anyone else while trying to push shots of liquor on me and the folks I was with. This was the only negative that I could identify. I had the maibock which was very good and then the IPA that was pushed by the same waiter and was nothing but pedestrian at best. For dinner I had the ribs which where very good and had an appetizer of wings that where excellent. Over all I recommend the place, just hope you dont get the same waiter!

I must have passed this place a hundred times before finally stopping in and trying some of the offerings. Located in the Telegraph, M-10, Northwestern Highway traffic zone of hellish construction, it's a bit hidden among a hotel on one side and another restaurant on the other. Upon walking in, smooth Jazz and R&B are quickly noted, along with the aroma of well made imported cigars. Very dark inside, and uniquely decorated with Warhol-type art and many pictures and paintings. The service was pretty good, as the waitress seemed to know about the beers and beer styles, and was quick to notice that I wasn't there for a Miller Lite. She informed me that 2 new Cask Conditioned ales were just tapped that evening and were available. Nice. She even knew the distinction of Cask Conditioned Ales and their qualities. Impressive. The selection of beers was average, something for everyone, from lighter offerings (Northwestern Gold) to darker heavier brews (an Altbier and Stout are regulars on the menu). I didn't try any of the food, but from what I saw there were some lean cuts of steak and well cooked baked potatoes being served all around me. Looked good. Overall, it was a bit pricey, but for what I got, I was satisfied. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

This visit was part of my recent Brewpub Tour of Middle Michigan <grin> We came to Copper Canyon on two separate nights, one because they had some very good food, and the next because I had broken the pint glass I bought the first night.
We found out that they had a stout and an IPA on hand-pull/cask, so we started with these. Both were very smooth as they should be, and very tasty if not a bit lighter than expected. Very good by any measure.A few of the folks tried some of the other offerings, and were satisfied, but not overly impressed. I took a few sips and agreed. It was probably that the cask offerings were so much better!
As for the food, great steaks each night. Side dishes were very good and the service was the same. Nice place if you are doing business in the area and are on an expense account, but not the place I'd come on my own budget. Beer was reasonable, but the food a bit more $$ than I expected. Nice place!
If you are purely into the beers, there are other offerings within 10 miles that will impress. Check the Michigan Brewers Guild site to locate them.

Copper Canyon is a brewpub located on the service drive of Northwestern Highway, just east of Telegraph Road.
The brewpub is clean and spacious and there are large screen tv's going for sporting events.
The beers are good, solid offerings. They are not highly complex or varied and are of the usual brewpub styles (pale, stout, red, etc.). I've enjoyed some of the beers and found others to be a bit thin and uninspiring.
The menu consists of sandwiches, burgers, appetizers and entree's and is very, reasonably priced.

This is one of my favorite brew pubs for two reasons, It is less than 5 minutes from my house and the Growler fills are $5.00 on Wednesdays and Sundays. There is no wait on growler days, the growlers are pre-filled and ready to go, Hand them your empty and 5 dollars and get a filed one in return
The place does not have a brew pub feel, rather it appears to be designed for the myriad of office towers and business hotels that dominate the area.
The beers are are all solid enough, most that I have sampled have been true to their style and the bartenders all appear knowledgeable on their brews.

Stopped here on business while staying at the hotel next door. It was a Monday night so it was pretty empty and was able to quickly get a seat at the bar. Pretty cool layout one side of the room is pretty much restaurant-style with the bar in front, with the other side of the room seemingly more like a sports bar, with lots of TVs around. Relatively small selection of on-site beer available, maybe only 5 or 6, but two of which were available on the hand pump. I went with the cask-conditioned Coconut Porter (not great, too thin). The place also had a dozen or so bottles available, including some Fullers, Samuel Smith, Duvel, etc. The bartender was attentive and ready to explain what they had on tap. The menu was a mix of bar food with a mix aof entrees. I went with the BBQ Salmon which was pretty good. I sampled a few of the other beers that the bartender offered. Nothing mind-blowing, but still nice to get a fresh beer while on the road. A decent place to get a beer.
