Our expression of a classic Double IPA, Mother Handsome is brewed with a funky blend of African & American hops. It is meticulously balanced, slightly bitter, with a hop aroma of currant, citrus, stone fruit, and fresh herbs. We named it in tribute to the 19th century tavern owner of local Ferndale legend. Not only did she quench the thirst of many a weary soul traveling the Saginaw Trail between Detroit and points north, the tavern floor doubled as a rooming house. So, while you can’t crash at our place, we are happy to provide you with a tasty respite from a long day!

We don’t often choose the easiest path, instead we embrace the challenging; the road less traveled is longer but far more interesting and ultimately, well worth it. The people we admire, the organizations we care about and the artists that inspire us, they all took the Long Cut. When we started brewing our IPA in 2015, we committed to creating a beer that stood apart from the myriad of hopped up choices on the market. The Long Cut IPA delivers on that promise with a balanced, crisp, slightly floral and citrusy beer that we hope you love, with a name that reminds us of how far we’ve come. So, c’mon, let’s take the Long Cut, we’ll get there eventually.

city

City is a classic American Pale Ale, through and through. Two Row malted barley is blended with just the right amount of toasted caramel malt to create a firm malt backbone. Cascade and cutting edge experimental Yakima Valley hop varietals are gently integrated into the beer to balance the malt and give the brew its soul. City never overwhelms and welcomes you to enjoy another balanced, refreshing pint. We brewed this beer with the legions of Detroit City FC supporters in mind. It’s a tribute to their fervor and rabid enthusiasm for the beautiful game and the great City we call home.
