These are the 15 best craft beer bars in metro Detroit

When it comes to places to do craft beer crawls, you could do much worse than the Detroit area. The Michigan craft beer scene is still growing, and metro Detroit sports dozens of quality craft brewers. Even some far-flung tastemakers say Michigan is beginning to be seen as a "great beer state."
One thing you can say with confidence is that we do enjoy a cold one. It makes sense, given the city's working-class heritage. And we're not overly fussy about loyalties to our state's dynamic beer scene. We have great craft brewers, and we have fabulous beer palaces, where you can get beer from Oregon to Vermont to Belgium.
But craft breweries and brewpubs abound. Three of the finest spots in metro Detroit are in Warren, the massive, blue-collar Macomb County suburb north of the city. Technically, it's Michigan's "third-largest city" — after Detroit and Grand Rapids — but, with three craft beer operations that punch above their weight, it could be the No. 1 beer city in the state.
