The highly anticipated opening of Glasshouse Brewing of Ann Arbor has finally come!
The doors will unlock for the first time ever at 4pm on June 30, 2016, after three years of hard work and hurdles. Considered by many to be the most anticipated brewery of Washtenaw County this year, Glasshouse is located in the heart of West Side Ann Arbor amidst the bustle of University of Michigan Athletics and Ann Arbor tourism.
 
The microbrewery will open with an incredible lineup of six brews designed and executed by Head Brewer, Kuma Ofori-Mensa, including a cherrywood smoked stout, an amber wheat beer, and a saison made with lemongrass and grains of paradise. Their next beer to be released is a kölsch-inspired lager made with all Michigan ingredients as a part of the microbrewery’s efforts to pursue sustainability and to promote other local and Michigan businesses.
 
Glasshouse Brewing intends to make every effort to be more than another microbrewery in the Midwest’s already booming craft beer industry: looking for every opportunity to invite members of all communities to find a regular spot to unwind in the fresh summer air of its beer garden or at the bar on a cold winter’s eve.

Although a kitchen is planned for the near future, the brewery will partner with their next door neighbor, Chela’s Taqueria, frequently throughout the summer. Having already been in discussion with the infamously delicious and authentic Mexican food destination they hope to regularly offer beer and food pairings.

Founding Mug Club memberships are still available for purchase at www.glasshousebrewing.com. All members registered before June 27 will be provided access to an exclusive soft opening party held on June 29 at 7pm.
