While there are many great breweries in Detroit and throughout the country, the problem is many of them share the same aesthetic and themes. These are tried-and-true approaches, and while they can go a long way in creating a certain atmosphere at your local watering hole, it can be refreshing to go somewhere different. Enter Dragonmead Microbrewery, a fantasy-themed craft beer microbrewery established not long before the popularization of craft beer in 1997. Their dedication to their fantasy and Medieval theme, Dragonmead Microbrewery showcases themed decorations to differentiate themselves from your average pub and transport you to a new world of swords and sorcery even before the beer does. Dragonmead Microbrewery offers a very wide selection, offering over forty beers and even wine and mead they make themselves, with the mead giving the fantasy theme a flavor in addition to the visuals around the establishment.
Dragonmead Microbrewery hosts a wide variety of events for everyone to enjoy, ranging from more traditional ones such as regular happy hours to trivia nights including Harry Potter-themed events to Yoga and vegan nights. In addition to traditional pub foods, you can also order more rustic choices such as venison or more unique choices such as Dragonmead beer nuts, or peanuts soaked in Dragonmead’s own beers. For dessert check out Dragonmead beer ice cream. Dragonmead Microbrewery is open all week, although they only allow people twenty-one and over after 9:00 PM, so keep that in mind if you want to bring your family to check out this unique pub. Plan your adventure today!
