ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN
Within walking distance of University of Michigan football stadium, the spacious, arched high-ceilinged LEOPOLD BROTHERS not only brewed on-site, but also distilled gin and vodka, August ’04. The sports bar atmosphere included pool tables, several televisions, cafeteria style dining tables, and outdoor patios. Small beer selection offered decent fare such as sour fruited staple Red Lager, wheat-sugary hop-spiced Golden Lager, floral-hopped wheat-soured Pilsner, metallic banana nut-clove-allspice-induced lemon-tart Hefeweizen, and muddled nut-roasted wood-burnt orange-tart Porter (with oak-dried grape-cherry tannins). But the brewery-distillery closed by 2007.
