The Ann Arbor location looks more like a coffeehouse than a pub, with natural wood and brick, and scattered tables among a few barrels. But a steady clientele of young adults comes into the space seeking a good beer or wine buzz. And there's extra appeal behind the Grotto's motto, "Taste it, love it, tote it," as you can take growlers to go.
