PUTTING THE ALE IN FERNDALE

PUTTING THE ALE IN FERNDALE SINCE 1997

YES, THIS IS WHO IS RESPONSIBLE. HARD TO BELIEVE, WE KNOW

Making Beer

People always ask us:

"Hey WAB, your beer. Why do it taste so good?"

Rather than correct their English or wipe the beer off of their chin, we give them the straight answer. ONE WORD: Chris Coburn.

Chris has been our brewhouse commander since January 2016.  Aside from his experience as a cellarman at Greenbush Brewing Co in Sawyer, MI, years of serious home brewing, and numerous brew cycles at Greenbush and Beer Lab London, Chris completed the Concise Course in Brewing Technology through World Brewing Academy / Siebel Institute of Technology with a 99%.

Chris speaks a beautiful language, and that language is BEER.

ONE OF OUR FIRST PINTS EVER CAUGHT ON FILM

9 Mile?

Why not have a 9 Mile beer? In 1997 this WAB beer was ceremoniously hoisted and subsequently drank. The rest is history.

WHERE SCIENCE MEETS SCIENCE. MAD SCIENCE.

Making Magic

Like all beer, it's mostly water, but that's where the similarities end and the fun begins.

WHERE SCIENCE MEETS YOUR REFRIGERATOR

You CAN Take it With You

We offer all of our beers to go in 1/2 gallon growlers.

THE KITCHEN


We love food as much as we love beer. Especially PIZZA. Don't you just love it, too?

THE KITCHEN


We love food as much as we love beer. Especially PIZZA. Don't you just love it, too?

The magic from our kitchen is the reason why you will actually think twice before washing the taste of dinner down with WAB beer. Not saying WAB beer tastes bad, we're saying that the food just tastes so good, that's all. 

IN HOPS WE CRUST

FERNDALE?


FERNDALE?


WE MIGHT HAVE PUT THE ALE IN FERNDALE, AND THE CITY MAY BE HOPPING, BUT THERE'S A LOT MORE THAN US BEHIND THAT ONE. LET US TELL YOU ABOUT A FEW THINGS.


THE LOVING TOUCH

POOL HALL MUSIC VENUE 

One door south of the WAB, The Loving Touch, named after the massage parlor that used to be located in the WAB building (at least the name had a happy ending) has 8 beautiful pool tables most nights, and is transformed into one of the most music friendly venues in the area.

THE EMORY

We're super in love with the emory, for too many good reasons. It's gorgeously appointed with more wood than The Loving Touch ever had in it. Little known fact that the building the WAB is in used to be a massage parlor of the same name back in the 80's. Who didn't love the 80's?

DIY STREET FAIR RETURNS SEPTEMBER '17
