Crunchy’s takes its beer seriously. Customers can pick from 27 taps at the pub, coming from Michigan breweries such as Bell’s and New Holland, as well as craft breweries including Dogfish Head and Stone. The microbrew-loving staffers regularly host brewers' nights with reps on hand to sample and answer questions, and celebrate the release of seasonal beers such as Bell’s Oberon. Brews come by the pint or in the famous 270-ounce “bucket of beer,” ideal for serving a large party or putting out a dollhouse fire.
To accompany the tap selection, Crunchy’s kitchen serves a menu of pub fare that includes stone-baked calzones, deep-dish pizzas, and half-pound char-grilled burgers. Nine burger-topping combinations, each including a beer-pairing suggestion, range from pineapple and teriyaki sauce to sautéed onions and pepperoncinis.
Crunchy’s cultivates a casual and easygoing atmosphere both inside its taproom and on its front patio. Inside, beer signs and photos plaster the aged wood walls above emerald booths, separated from central tables by illuminated weathered wood arches. Arcade games and dartboards are situated in the front, next to painted white wood where patrons of the past have scrawled their names or TARDIS coordinates. A full events calendar includes karaoke every Thursday–Saturday.
