Birmingham's Griffin Claw Brewery
Griffin Claw, you will soon. This two month old brewery on Eton St in Birmingham is a huge 12,000 square foot facility with an über cool biergarten next to the train tracks. So far, we've tried the chicken quesadillas and the haddock sandwich and found them both absolutely tantalizing along with very delicious beers called El Rojo and the Grand Trunk Pilsner. How interesting that a brewery so young is already on tap in Detroit at Rub BBQ Pub. The long adjoining picnic tables had a lovely family gathering just before our arrival, maybe celebrating an engagement or an anniversary with ages ranging from five to 75. It was adorable--and in a brewery, no less! It felt very European and the service is top notch.
