About this Business
From Our Editors
Though Executive Chef Michael Whalen's 57 Brew Pub & Bistro menu embodies global flavors, those flavors always start in the same place: Michigan. Each of Michael's upscale pub dishes—made alongside Executive Sous Chef James Powell—begins with local produce, dairy, and meats. Along with making soups and salads from scratch, Michael and James top wood-fired bison burgers with housemade black-bean salsa and broil handmade brats with Wayne's Green Tractor ale. The ale, like all seven of 57 Brew Pub's on-tap beers and its seasonal specialties, is handcrafted on site by the bistro's resident brewmaster, Victor Aellen.
