Not your typical beer

When Lea and Kyle Hunt leased the entire building at 1454 Gratiot Avenue, Detroit, they knew they would eventually do something with the second floor. Now that the restaurant on the first floor, Gather, is up and running, they are turning what they had been using as an Airbnb into a craft beer bar called Cøllect (the “øl” is Danish for beer) with the hopes of a late September opening. Kyle said the beers on their 14 taps will change based on the season, and while they love places like Bell’s and Founder’s, they plan on picking breweries not everyone has heard of. “There’s a lot of small, mom-and-pop interesting breweries from New York to California to Michigan,” he said. “We want to highlight some of those breweries.” The duo hope to create relationships with breweries and make collaboration beers. The latter they are already working with is Ferndale’s Urbanrest Brewing Company, which will have a beer at Cøllect that will only be available there.
