The buzz is building around Urbanrest Brewing, a microbrewery and restaurant slated to open near Woodward Heights Boulevard. The company is currently popping up around town to raise awareness for their crowdfunding campaign. In January, co-founder Zach Typinski told Eater that the brewery (then Neighborhood Brewing Company) would feature "organic, open fermented ales and scratch-made" food with hops and menu items supplemented by the brewery's Center Line farm.

Now, Typinski reveals to DBusiness that Urbanrest's 3,000-square-foot facility will house a 100-seat taproom incorporating "natural light, exposed brick, and reclaimed industrial materials." In addition to ales the brewery will also produce ciders, meads, and fermented kombucha tea. Typinski characterizes Urbanrest as a sustainable business and says the company plans to compost and invest in solar energy. Urbanrest aims to open in spring 2016.
