Michigan’s fast-growing sour beer brewery and restaurant chain Jolly Pumpkin is dropping another outpost in metro Detroit — this time in Dearborn. The Dexter-based brewery is set to open a new location in west Dearborn at Wagner Place, according to the Detroit News.
Wagner Place is owned by Ford’s property development division and recently underwent a major renovation. The buildings are slated to house offices for 600 Ford employees, per a release. An outpost of City Barbeque, Modern Greek Grill, Paradise Biryani Indian Cuisine, and coffee shop called Eleanor’s Cafe with a frozen yogurt shop called Yogurtown are among the restaurants joining Jolly Pumpkin at the property. A breakfast and lunch restaurant called the Great Commoner has also signed on at the property. The new restaurants and retail are expected to begin opening in 2019.
Jolly Pumpkin, under Mission Restaurant Group, has grown significantly in the past few years. The brewery opened a location in Royal Oak and a Chicago brewpub in 2017. Earlier this year, the group debuted a Grand Rapids location and rebranded Dexter’s Null Taphouse as Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales + Kitchen. Another location is expected to be part of a redevelopment of the Detroit Metropolitan Airport’s North Terminal. The company’s sister brewery North Peak also has development plans for Bay City. Meanwhile, Jolly Pumpkin founder Jon Carlson and fellow developer Greg Lobdell are opening a restaurant in Cass Corridor called North Cookshop. That’s on track to open in spring 2019.
Stay tuned for more updates on the Dearborn restaurant and bar.
