Brewery Faisan

Out of all the styles of beer to focus a brewery around husband-and-wife duo Rachel and Paul Szlaga decided theirs would be Belgian-style. But why? “Because it’s (Belgium) really where we fell in love with the flavors,” she said. In the late spring, locals will be able to fall in love with them too when Brewery Faisan (French for “pheasant”) opens at 1087 Beaufait Street, Detroit. Currently the two homebrewers, who have been creating their own beer for the last eight years, are testing out recipes to put on tap in their 9,000-square-foot space, which won’t have a kitchen – although they plan on offering snacks and inviting food trucks to the space. Rachel said they will have at least eight beers, with the hope to always be adding to the list. “We’re opening to be a small, local business, and we want to have a lot of fun options,” she said. Right now, they plan to have a Belgian Witbier recipe and are working on recipes for a Belgian-style saison, as well as a few lighter beers.
