If you are a beer enthusiast, and the chances are that if you're reading this, you are (or at least, someone out there thinks that you are), then you already understand the allure of an ale, the seduction of a stout, and the power of a pilsner. Now, we're not talking about power in terms of potency or alcohol content, or the beauty of a just-poured dark porter as its head develops atop a cascading display as enticing as a siren's song, drawing you inexorably closer—we're talking about the feeling you get when you drink a great beer. It's as if there's some higher power at work behind the scenes that has aided in the creation of a truly fulfilling brew. Some breweries have this gift, while others simply do not, and those that do seem to be somehow imbued with this impressive power. It kind of makes you wonder, what other powers do these facilities wield? Is it possible that some of the establishments that create the most sublime brews also have other abilities, such as the means to raise the dead? A perfectly logical and obvious question for those of us beer connoisseurs with inquisitive minds (and perhaps, overactive imaginations). Well, as luck would have it, the Stoney Creek Brewing Company is one of them with the power to resurrect
If you’ve already got a generous dose of this month's shipment in you at this point, then this newsletter might be freaking you out right about now The truth about Stoney Creek's resurrective power may not be as mystical as we’ve made it sound, but this brewery has in fact brought back a number of beers from that dark place that defunct breweries are forced to send their once prized elixirs to: the unforgiving cellar of discontinuance Stoney Creek moved in to the operating space formerly used by the Atwater Block Brewery after they went out of business in 2000. After renovating the location, they purchased the Atwater name and brands, of which at least three are currently offered along with their own line up, aided in large part by the skills of former Atwater brewer Hazen Schumacher. Thus, fans of the Atwater beers will find little to no difference in taste between those previously sold and those that are now offered at Stoney Creek. From great ales to stupendous stouts, fine wines to culinary fanfare, this brewpub has, to say the least, a lot to offer. If you're ever in the Detroit area, we encourage you to stop in for a visit (at least once).
