Cheers to the Opening of Eastern Market Brewing Co.


Cheers to the Opening of Eastern Market Brewing Co.

Community gathering space that’s pet friendly, let’s you bring in your own food and cans your favorite beer on demand – it sounds too good to be true, but Eastern Market Brewing Co. is the real deal.

Before it even opened, as a preview at Eastern Market After Dark, Eastern Market Brewing Co. (EMBC) was packed with lively guests who were able to conveniently come and go through the front door and back alley, while the retractable windows allow guests at high top seating to converse with passersby. The long rows of community tables creates a friendly environment where everyone can talk to their neighbor. Detroit’s newest brewery embodies the very values of the neighborhood its named for.

With 9 to 12 beers available on tap at any time, EMBC plans to offer something for everyone – Labatt fans and craft connoisseurs alike. The micro/nano brewery plans to experiment with flavors and create special batches infused with produce from the market. They’ll also offer on-site, on-demand canning so if you find a flavor you love, you can get it before it’s gone!

Unlike most breweries, EMBC doesn’t have a kitchen – it has a food truck. Jon Kung will prepare international street food on Riopelle that guests can eat and enjoy inside. Because there is no kitchen, folks can bring in food from other food trucks, restaurants or even home.

If the pre-launch is any indication, Eastern Market Brewing Co. will run out of space soon. Next spring they want to transform the alley into a patio, the second floor will offer additional seating and, down the road, they plan to open a rooftop bar.

As home brewers turned brewery owners, the guys at EMBC want to open the beer making process up to the public. They would like to host home brewing events and eventually allow people to offer their recipes on tap. In the meantime, you can win a 4-person Brewing and Tasting Experience, a private event with Eastern Market Brewing Co.’s master brewer.
