Atwater Brewery

Located in Detroit’s historic Rivertown district, and housed in a 1919 factory warehouse, Atwater Brewery was founded in March of 1997 with the purpose of carrying on the rich history of breweries in Detroit. Their brewing process, however, is over 200 years old.

Their imported Kasper Schultz brew house allows them to brew their brands in the true heritage-style of traditional German lagers. And, when they say, “imported brew house,” they mean it! All of their main brewing equipment was brought in from Germany, where precision and passion for beer has its roots. In fact, when they have service calls on their equipment, they call in the Germans!

Likewise, they only use the finest malt and hops from Germany to brew their lagers. Their specialty ales, on the other hand, are brewed with only the finest American hops. All of which makes Atwater beers distinctly fresh and flavorful. Which is exactly why they live by the slogan: “We drink all we can and sell the rest.”


atwater vanilaWith a beautifully crafted, copper cored English Style Porter at its heart, Atwater’s Vanilla Java Porter tips its hat to the modern audience with the addition of vanilla and a specialty coffee extract that is locally produced and designed to be absent of burnt flavors. The beer, vanilla & coffee tumble together, enhancing the smooth latent natures of each.
 decadent dark chocolate aleHolding true to the Northern English tradition, the Decadent Dark Chocolate Ale has at its foundation a nutty profile with a round mouthfeel. Added is a Chocolate Extract consisting of three blended chocolates of varied depth. The result is a rich,  but not overtly sweet, experience for both the beer and the chocolate enthusiast.
WHANGO_Social1 Tropical paradise in a bottle. Get your mouth ready for the perfect balance of mango sweetness and refreshing wheat flavor. Clean and crisp on the tongue, fill your vessel with this laid-back sipper and set sail for the Isle of WHANGO. It was brewed to overwhelm but never overpower. Welcome to the jungle, baby.
GoingSteady_Launch-Social1 This citrusy session’s got enough Cascade hop and grapefruit flavor to go around,  with just enough of the good stuff to make whatever it is you like doing a little better. Full bodied flavor that rocks any situation while keeping you rock steady.
