Located in Detroit’s historic Rivertown district, and housed in a 1919 factory warehouse, Atwater Brewery was founded in March of 1997 with the purpose of carrying on the rich history of breweries in Detroit. Atwater Brewery’s brewing process, however, is over 200 years old. All of Atwater’s main brewing equipment was brought in from Germany, where precision and passion for beer has its roots. Atwater we only use the finest malt and hops from Germany to brew their lagers. Their specialty ales, on the other hand, are brewed with only the finest American hops. All of which makes Atwater Block beers distinctly fresh and flavorful.
