Motor City Brew Works Amber Wheat
In spite of what the brewer at Royal Oak Brewery would have you think, I do enjoy wheat beers. So when my friend ordered the seasonal Amber Wheat when we met up at the Motor City Brew Works (MCBW), I made it a pitcher. MCBW is best known for its Ghetto Blaster Ale, very popular in these parts.
The Wheat is a nice dark orange color and the pitcher came with an abundance of oranges. It is medium-bodied and a bit light on flavor. If you like wheats, then you may be a bit disappointed, but if you don’t, you might be pleasantly surprised.
MCBW is located in mid-town Detroit and has a wonderful brewpub that is perfect for warm-weather sipping. The whole building seems to open up into the outside, with the feel of a beachside bar. It has a fairly large, airy rooftop seating area, where my friend and I sat. As the setting sun beat down on us the pitcher shrank and the conversation grew, and I was reminded that sometimes it’s not about the beer.
