Draught Horse Brewing has a nice set-up. In a spot on its own surrounded by some woods it has a kind of peaceful feeling even though it’s just West of a busy business center area at a major I-96 exit. We went at night to try some beers on a Thursday night and found it to be quite busy. They had what looked like a very interesting food menu, but they also had a great list of beers on tap. There were many that I wanted to try so it was tough to figure out a starting place. A wide range of styles to appeal to all beer drinkers for sure. The beers were all very well made with great flavors. I had some awesome IPAs and Pale Ales with some awesome fruity hops.
One thing that stood out was this place was very family friendly. As a parent with 2 young boys, it’s nice finding a place that welcomes kids and doesn’t make you feel like a social pariah for wanting to have a meal at a brewery with your family. Heck, they even have a special day of the week when kids meals are discounted. I didn’t have the boys with me the night we visited, but there were a lot of young ones sprinkled throughout. One thing that sealed it in my mind that this was a place that definitely had kids in mind was the boys bathroom. Toilet & urinal as usual, but the urinal was nice and low for easy access. It may seem trivial, but as a father of young boys, a urinal that can be reached is always a sign of family-friendliness I’ve found.
