BEER HERE — Corktown’s collaboration brewery Brew Detroit has reportedly received label approval from the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau for a Stroh’s Bohemian-Style Pilsner, suggesting that the onetime Detroit beer brand could be returning to its roots in the city. Brew Detroit is staying tight lipped on a possible brewing contract with Stroh’s parent company Pabst Brewing Co. [Crain’s]

WINE — Mabel Gray’s James Rigato talks wine in a new interview. When asked whether he preferred bubbles or burgundy the chef firmly came down on the side of bubbles: "Bubbles all fucking day, on any occasion, with any food – spicy food, fast food, junk food, no food." [Chefsfeed]

CH-CH-CHANGES — Corktown gastropub Bobcat Bonnie’s is streamlining its lunch menu to reduce wait times and improve customer experiences. The restaurant is also in the process of building a patio so diners will soon be able to enjoy even more outdoor seating. [EaterWire]
