The interior is modern, the food includes brisket and ribs, and the location is a stone's throw from hip eateries and breakfast spots. The beer is especially interesting: Mishigama is the Japanese-sounding brew created by Michigan craft beer pioneer Ted Bagerow. All put together, it earned the Alehouse the nod for Washtenaw County's best new bar this year.
