Any English-style real ales (cask conditioned) in Detroit?

bb | Apr 27, 2004 07:41 AM

I'm visiting Detroit and wondering if Detroit metro or Windsor offers anywhere that brews a good English-style bitter, or any cask-conditioned real ale at all for that matter? Served at 53F & hand pulled. I see plenty of listings for brew-pubs in Free Press Dining guide but did not notice anything that appears to do cellar-temp real ale.

I will say have previously visited a place called Dragonmead which was not good at all.

Any Brit's in Detroit area might be able to steer me right here perhaps. It's a very specific style of beer I'm hoping to find, not just something brownish, sugary, cloudy, cold and headache-inspiring like most brew-pubs serve. Somewhere that knows its beer and takes its brewing & serving very seriously. (Something like the late-and-very-much-lamented "Sherlock's Home" in the Twin Cities is what I'm looking for.)

I have to think there is such a place in such a large area. Any tips gratefully received.
