St Clair Shores has a not-so-hidden gem called Baffin Brewery. It’s a locally owned partnership right along the Nautical Mile whose tasty craft beer offerings are designed to entice and quench your thirst. And they do, offering a fine sampling of wonderful flavors from a mango-inspired American-Pale Ale to White beers, IPAs and a delicious stout that’s perfect for a chilly day. You can check out their current offerings by clicking the picture to the right.
The popular mango-inspired American-Pale Ale “Mango Unchained” is now available to buy in cans at the brewery or in stores. At 6.5% ABV and 160 calories, it’s a fantastic accompaniment to a Sunday brunch of eggs, bacon and toast. One has to get their fruit somehow! If you are an IPA fan, hoo boy, watch out for the Mosaic HOP IPA “Mo Problems” because it’s so good it’s bound to cause you, well, you get it.
Now, seating is limited so plan to start your drinking during the day. If you are lucky enough to get off of work a half hour early, do it! The place fills up quickly. Even though their staffers work hard to keep your mugs filled, if you want to sit and sample their offerings, plan to get in earlier than the traditional happy hour.
With that said, say you want to take some of their pleasantries home with you. A couple beers on the menu can be purchased to take home in growlers.
A couple tips, there are a lot of restaurants within walking distance and though Baffin will get food for you prepared from the adjacent eatery, that food isn’t anything to write home about. You can check in with Baffin about their Food Truck days, often on Thursday or Friday. And don’t forget to set dates in your calendar to remind you to hop in for a couple beers. You can get free swag the more beer you drink and when you hit the 150 beers in a year mark, well, you join their Mug Club and become a Baffin hero.
Verdict: Check it out, but during the day!
