Saucy Brew Works on March will open its first location in Detroit in one of the city’s most iconic neighborhoods, Brush Park. The new brewpub and coffeehouse at 2671 John R. will be the first restaurant to open within Bedrock’s City Modern mixed-use community development.
Craft beer aficionados and novices alike will be able to enjoy the 5,700-square-feet space featuring both indoor and outdoor seating. Saucy Brew Works, owned and operated by Brent Zimmerman and Eric Anderson, utilized the expertise of Sachse Construction as the construction manager for this innovative project.
The brew pub’s menu consists of shareables involving meatballs, roasted cauliflower and Bavarian pretzels as well as sandwiches, salads and stone-oven baked wings. A house specialty, Saucy Brew Works’ thin crust ‘apizza,’ comes in many forms including Nashville Hot Chicken, Fungus Amongus and Veggie Supreme.
New to Saucy Brew Works’ menu is Saucy Coffee, a craft coffeehouse concept. The coffee menu will include a single-origin house roast, pour overs, espresso, and a specialty menu inspired by Saucy beers such as What’s His Nuts, a vanilla stout with peanut butter and coffee, and Modern Crimes, a toasted coconut porter. They will also offer their recently launched whole bean coffee in House Roast and What’s His Nuts? for purchase in-store (it is currently sold online here).
The expansion into Detroit is part of the brewery’s overall development plans and will be the fourth location following the 2020 openings of its Columbus, Ohio, location and Taproom and Coffeehouse in Orange, Ohio.
Saucy Brew Works will provide a 20 percent discount to all City Modern residents. The brewery will continue to maintain the highest level of sanitization at the new restaurant while providing hand sanitizer, masks, 6-ft table distancing and floor markers for the safety of guests and employees.
