    A cool spot in Ferndale next to The Loving Touch. A bit limited in the beer selection, though.

    I miss the old menu and 1/2 off Mondays, but LOVE the new pizzas. Ol' Dirty minus anchovies = guilty cheese-laden pleasure. Smells Like Florentine Spirit minus chicken = FANTASTIC. C's Nuts delish!

    Of recent, the quality of the beers has seemed to step it up. It seemed the last few years were just "shrug, guess I'll make some beer". Good Nitro and ESB when available.

    Normally this is a good place. But today we had to wait an hour for a take out order, everything was cold when we finally got it and I was given the wrong order. Bad day for the WAB.

    Decent beer, but beware the service. Especially on off nights it can take hours to get your, now cold, food. Make sure you've fed the meter enough!

    Service at the WAB has become abhorrent. Twice this month alone we've come and been completely ignored by waitstaff. 30 minutes without even seeing them on a dead night. Just not worth it anymore.

    Not impressed. Food was ok - service was slow and there were bugs everywhere! So many flies! Couldn't even finish my beer because little bugs got in. Kept swatting them away while I was trying to eat.

    Hummus is a little weird, has jalapeños in it. Flatbread pizzas are good, but are for more than one person despite what waitress says. Husband thought BBQ pizza too saucy, margarita pizza good.

    While the food was good and the beer descent, the service was lacking. We found the service to be slow. Often, we were tracking down a server to place an order.

    Worst beer made in the Detroit area. Food is only justified on Monday when it's half off. Even then is a stretch.

    The WAB serves beers ranging from a (new) Detroit Maiden IPA to the Hefty-Weizen to a Vanilla Porter, plus seasonal brews. Voted "Best Microbrewery" by HOUR Detroit in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
