The arrival of a craft brewery into a neighborhood can have significant economic and social impacts rarely created by other types of business establishments. According to Business Insider Magazine, craft beer now makes up nearly seven percent of the slow-growing U.S. beer market. In Detroit, as well as across the nation, breweries are often the first business to take up residence in an emerging district. This tour will showcase four craft brew businesses and the neighborhoods they helped to create: Batch Naobrewery in Corktown, Motor City Brewing Works in Midtown, Downtown’s Grand Trunk Pub, and Atwater Brewery Tap Room in Rivertown.
