Griffin Claw Brewing Co. makes some fine ass beers. They're known for signatures like Grind Line Pale Ale, El Rojo Red Ale, Grand Trunk Bohemian Pilsner, and their seasonal favorite, Screamin' Pumpkin Ale.

Dan Rogers is the man behind these beers and he's spent years honing his skills. He opened Griffin Claw three short years ago, and the 12,000-square-foot facility has continued to rake in the awards. The brewery has brought home nine gold medals, six silver, and four bronze for their beers.

In addition to their line of signature favorites, Griffin Claw is now making something super special for baseball season. Their Clubhouse Cream Ale, a new brew concocted in honor of our home team, is on tap at the Birmingham brewery and available at retail outlets across metro Detroit all season long.
