A toast to good news from Detroit
This city recently was my last stop on a quest to visit more than 100 Michigan breweries for a road-trip guide I've been working on. I knew to expect great things in Beer City USA (Grand Rapids), Ann Arbor and Kalamazoo (you've heard of Bell's, right?), and maybe even the Upper Peninsula ("What else is there to do up there?"). But Detroit has long been the epitome of urban collapse stories, and now bankruptcy news makes the dark cloud even darker. But the craft beer scene alone is reason enough to visit Detroit.
