Brewery readies for opening in Ferndale
Shelby Township-based microbrewery Brooks Brewing is preparing to open the doors at its second taproom in Ferndale on Wednesday, June 26, according to announcements on social media. The roughly 50-seat outpost is located at 22925 Woodward Ave. near Culantro. The taproom features a horseshoe bar with 25 handles pouring everything from kettle sours to IPAs to lagers. Brooks’ website teases a “flat rate sipping” format where all beers will be priced at $6 with the size of the pour varying based on the style of beer.
Party on the patio
Eater Award-winning restaurant Marrow may have found a way to put a spring back in the step of West Village residents after the demise of the neighborhood beer and wine garden. The restaurant is preparing to open its patio for the summer starting with a Pet Nat Party at 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 20. Chef Sarah Welch tells Eater that Marrow’s team has acquired two kegs of bubbly pet nat wine and will be serving hot dogs, hamburgers, and barbecue chicken for the occasion. During the remainder of the outdoor dining season customers will be able to sip beer and wine on the patio while eat off yakitori, charcuterie, dumplings, and other snacks of the restaurant’s dinner menu.
Here comes a dumpling shop
After weeks of anticipation, forthcoming Nepalese dumpling stall Momo Cha is readying for an opening inside Cass Corridor’s Detroit Shipping Company food hall. The restaurant is scheduled to receive its final inspection this week, meaning steamed, pan-fried, and deep-fried momos are nearly in reach.
