Detroit’s oldest operating brewery, Motor City Brewing Works, continues the city’s proud tradition

Detroit and the U.S. auto industry have been synonymous with each other for more than a century, and Motor City Brewing Works, Detroit’s oldest operating brewery, fits in perfectly with this storied tradition. The brewery was founded in 1994 and continues to brew hand-crafted beers in Detroit with its custom 20 BBL fabricated brewery system made from salvaged equipment and scraps from the city’s industrial past. This one-of-a-kind equipment produces the brewery’s flagship Bohemian Lager, Motor City Pale Ale, GhettoBlaster English style mild ale, Nut Brown Ale, and Honey Porter. Motor City, located at 470 W. Canfield St., also puts out a huge variety of specialty releases each year including its Corktown Stout, the barrel-aged American sour brown ale Gear Oil, and its double dry hopped, double oat, wheat IPA Dank and Hazy. You can enjoy all of Motor City’s beers at its taproom, outdoor deck and beautiful beer garden located in the heart of Detroit’s Midtown district.
