Detroit Beer Co. Restaurant Review: Located on the first two floors of the restored Hartz building, this place offers an old-time Detroit experience, from the wall-size black-and-white photos of the city to the ornate wood bar and hardwood floors. The menu follows suit to serve Detroit’s classics, including the famed Maurice salad: sliced Black Forest ham, smoked turkey and Swiss cheese tossed in homemade house dressing on shredded lettuce with sliced eggs, cherry peppers, green onions and sweet gherkins. But the Detroit beer cheese soup, brewmaster's shepherd’s pie and blackened catfish are nothing to scoff at. There's also a brick oven for stone-fired pizzas. Desserts include carrot cake and grilled-banana splits. Seasonal beers are on the menu, along with house specialties such as Hop Rod Red, Steam Tunnel Stout and People Mover Porter. On a sunny day, sit outside and enjoy a brewski. The place opens at 10 a.m. on Detroit Lions' game days.
