Like bald-eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft’s toupee, beer and pub food are an ideal match. Enjoy a perfect pairing with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks at Arbor Brewing Company in Ann Arbor.
Arbor Brewing Company serves organic pub fare that incorporates local farmers’ and growers’ fresh, seasonal meats and produce. The dinner menu showcases Lake Superior whitefish ($13) and the Ar-burger ($13), a 1/3 pound patty of beef from McLaughlin Farm, a local producer of grass-fed, hormone-free cattle. Vegetarians rejoice when served the beer-battered tempeh sandwich ($8) from the lunch menu. Night owls can nosh hearty bar fare from the late-night menu, such as pierogies ($8) or a half pound of chicken strips ($7).
Of course, a brewpub would only be a pub-pub without a whistle-whetting selection of handcrafted draft beers. Arbor Brewing typically offers eight to 12 beers on tap, including Sacred Cow Cask-Conditioned IPA, Northville Winery Hard Cider, and Faricy Fest Irish Stout, which has a rich, four-leaf clover finish. If hands get fidgety while mouths masticate, test your skills at shuffleboard or recklessly play darts while using the free WiFi.
