We're heading up to southeast Michigan (Monroe County) in 6 weeks. Every time we come into town we hit Arbor Brewing, only about 45 mins away from my inlaws' house.

Anyone want to meet up for a few? Or somewhere other than Arbor Brewing? The only night I can't do is the 19th (Friday), we're going to Cedar Point.

If I were you I would try Dragonmead in Warren for a change - Arbor Brewing is quite good, but Dragonmead blows it away IMO. Their Final Absolution Belgian Triple is unbelievable. Their pub doesn't have much as far as food, but they have a ridiculous amount of their beers on tap... Definitely worth the trip, and I would imagine it would be about the same drive as going to Ann Arbor. Plus, you don't have to deal with being in Weaselville.

Yeah, Arbor's got nothing on Dragonmead...So definitely should hit it, and I'd meet up with you then...For me to go to Ann Arbor would mean a 90 minute drive each way from Port Huron...If you I pretty much pass by Dragonmead between work in Detroit and Home in Port huron..so it's not as bad.

Sounds good, something new and different would be cool. Will definitely bump this up as it gets closer.

Monroe county's a short drive from Toledo so I'd be in for any sort of get together there or even a bit further north. Seeing as the wife is due 9/15 my ability to attend will have to be VERY tentative.

We drive down to Toledo all the time, especially to hit Anderson's for their beer selection before we head home. Will save you a seat but will understand if the baby decides to arrive. Congratulations on the impending!!!

Cool! Nice tap list at Dragonmead!

Question though: what's the best way to get there from Rt. 23 from the south?
