Liberty Street Brewing Company is a small brewery in old village Plymouth, MI. I never really knew it existed until I drove by it one day.
They offered a very inexpensive menu for happy hour which included a 5 dollar taster flight. Really enjoyed their Portier and American IPA. There wasn't a lot of people in their so I expected to receive good service and I got it. Would go in again for sure.

I've been meaning to come here for almost a year now, but finally got in last week to get a growler (ultimately got a pair of snarlers instead). The first thing I noticed is that it's pretty nice inside -- a lot of wood, and appears to be clean. Immediately after, I noticed a pretty bad smell... it's like sawdust and fresh cut wood mixed with incredibly stale beer and a touch of vomit. Not pleasant, and a bizarre as hell smell. Regardless of that stench, it's a pretty nifty little place (by little... I mean little).
The quality of the beers as Liberty Street is... not that high. I'm hugely surprised at the 94 rating for this place. I have to assume it's due to people from Plymouth just being overwhelmed with joy that they have a brewery in their backyard... or they were insanely drunk when they had the beer. I've had four beers from LSBC, and the beers have been "okay" at best and "blech" at worst... pretty huge variation. For instance, I thought Steamy Windows was awful. Clementine Lemon Thyme is decent. Red Glare is solid. C-Monster is just... weird. The selection is pretty good though. I didn't count an exact number, but there were at least 12 beers on-tap (likely more), and a pretty decent variety.
This place is just... eh. I wouldn't go out of my way to come here, but it's a nice little brewery to support and visit if you live in Plymouth. I wouldn't be opposed to coming here again, but I could do without it.

My bf and I decided to stop here yesterday since we were in the area. It was a great find- the atmosphere was pub-like and fairly dark (a plus for me) with each table having their own lamp if they wanted more light. Another couple was playing a game of Battleship at the next table, so it reminded me of a coffee house a little bit. The service was prompt and efficient. The selection was pretty good, too, as they had many styles of their beer available and even hard cider and wine. I also liked that you can choose a half pint, pint or 20 oz glass of each, and samplers are an option too. I looked liked they had a bit of bar food but I didn't have any, and the refillable popcorn for a buck is a nice touch.
We'll be stopping by this place every time we visit the bf's parents and are in the area now.

Nice building. Classic old "style" inside with a nice bar. Hardwood abound. On my visit, many of the regular beers were out. The steam beer, however, was quite nice. The stout was initially out, until I asked about it. Lucky for me it was just getting put back on tap.
The service was very good, I also had the opportunity to speak with the brewer for awhile. He was both passionate and knowledgeable.
I was there just after work 5:15-5:45 and not many people came in while I was there. So I experienced a quite atmosphere, which was perfect for me.
I will return to check out more of their beers when they become available.

I visited Liberty Street Brewing on my way to a concert last night and I can't say enough good things about this place. It's beautifully decorated with a gorgeous bar, dim but not dark lighting, hardwood floors and solid colors on the wall. It's exactly how I would decorate my pub - or house for that matter - if I had one. There's nothing fake, nothing gimmicky, just a really nice, casual, relaxing atmosphere. There's even an upstairs that I didn't have time to check out.
And the beer is second to almost none. Only the rock stars of brewpubs like Three Floyds or Founders can boast a better lineup. Every single beer I tried was fresh, flavorful, perfectly balanced and true to style while maintaining a slight individuality. Even the light blonde ale was delicious. When I dropped in they featured nine beers ranging from light lager to honey porter and stout. Pretty much everything is over 6%, with the Honey Porter topping the charts at 7.9%. My favorites were the IPA (citrus, huge nose, slight sweetness) and the stout (strong for style at 6.3%, chocolate, easy drinking).
They have a small menu featuring food that doesn't require utensils. Chips with dips, pizza and chicken chili with a bread bowl, for example. I had the chili, which was quite tasty though the bread bowl tasted a tad stale. It was like navy bean soup but a tad thicker with chunks of chicken. But if nothing fits your fancy, feel free to order in from one of the several menus they keep on hand of local establishments that will deliver to the pub.
The bartender was knowledgeable and pretty decent. She was a bit slow at times to pick up my check or see how I was doing, but she was the only one on staff and I was reading a magazine; obviously in no hurry to be getting out of the place.
Overall, I'm very excited about this place. I'll stop in every time I'm anywhere near Plymouth. I might even get my mini-kegs filled here soon. Love it.

Second stop on my Detroit brewery crawl.
Located outside of downtown Plymouth, look for the giant moose painting on the outside of the building next door. Clean exterior and very cool stained glass door. Inside is cozy and clean as well having two beautiful golden draft towers. Located on the right as you enter is the brewery with windows for those with peering eyes.
My two fellow travelers shared the 10-sample gamut consisting of their Red Glare Amber, Starkweather Stout, Pub House Brown, Punkin Pie Ale, Steamy Windows Steam beer, Blonde Ale, an IPA and DIPA, a doppelbock, and finally their Gnarly Barleywine. The IPAs and pale ales had a very English feel being more balanced than hop-forward. The best of the bunch IMHO was the Barleywine with the Punkin Ale a close second. The Doppelbock was the most curious as it was quite sour. After talking with the brewer/owner? it seemed that it was intended, a little odd for me when expecting a doppelbock.
Service was prompt, knowledgeable and friendly and I especially appreciated them tracking down a sticker for my beer fridge. Price was great at 10 samples for $10.50. My only complaint is that when ordering samples they don't provide a cheat sheet or flight tray which made things a bit confusing but I'm being nitpicky. Great place and good beer.

Finally stopped by to pick up a growler after wanting to visit this place for about a year now. The bartender was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I told him it was my first time and right away he started pulling samples. I asked for two and he gave me four suggesting I must try them. He probably would have let me try the whole lot had I asked.
Of the four samples were two IPAs a red and an export stout. Both IPas were great and the red was amazing. I walked out with the export stout but would have been happy with either one of the four I tried. I could tell they took pride in thier beer and they should.
The atmosphere was good. I was only in there fifteen minutes but wished I could have stayed longer. They have two levels. The bottom level was a bar and a couple of tables. Very quiet and relaxed. A nice place to savor your brew. Upstairs had a band playing and was much more lively. Best of both worlds.
Very accessible to southeast Michigan. I'm surprised there isn't more hype about this little gem of a brewery. It is sort of hidden in downtown Plymouth but not to hard to find. I highly recommend it and cant wait to go back for more.
