Dragonmead is my goto Brewpub in the Detroit are. I do like Redwood lodge.
But my hang out is Sue's Coffeehouse, Winery, Brewpub in St. Clair. (I call it a pico brewery) I know of is the backroom of a coffeehouse in St. Clair Michigan. It's also a micro-winery. They serve usually 4 beers on tap and a dozen wines. It's an extract based brewery, their beers are fairly good, the prices are even better $2.00/pint and $1.00 on Thursdays (plus a mean 5 dollar buger/fries with homemade buns.)
It's the husband of the owner of the Coffeeshop, he's an early byout former engineer from one of the big three. It's his retirement dream, he's been a home winemaker for 20+ years and a homebrewer for maybe half that. (And there's a cigar lounge between the coffeeshop and microbrewery.
There is room for 4 at the bar, there's 4 tables for 2 on the periphery and 4 leather seats in the center. It can maybe hold 30 people, but 20 comfortably. It's really small, with basically a closet brewery with some conicals and even some 5 gallon buckets.
There's a porch in the front, and you can take the beer and wine into the coffeehouse proper or outside in the summer. But the actually "bar" is smaller than the bedroom of my loft.
