Michigan Chews & Brews Restaurant Brewery Winery Reviews

What We’re About

When it comes to the Michigan food and drink scene, there is a lot going on across the state. There’s news and restaurant reviews from heavy-hitters like The Detroit Free Press, Detroit News and MLive. There are Michigan beer and wine blogs scattered about. There is a large concentration of Instagram foodies in the Metro Detroit area who post amazing photos, too.

The variety of content is great for people passionate about restaurants, bars, breweries and wineries in Michigan, but it’s extremely fragmented, making it difficult to keep up! There has to be a better way, right?

This is why we launched Michigan Chews & Brews (formerly Michigan Restaurants & Bars) in early-2012. Michigan Chews & Brews marries the best of all these worlds, providing high-quality stories and reviews, curated news and photos all in one spot so you don’t have to chase the unicorn.

Exploring, spotlighting, and supporting our Michigan friends and neighbors is our passion, so we are proud to be 100% Michigan-positive. If there’s something we don’t like, we don’t mention it.
