Beer, coffee & tacos

Flint-based Tenacity Brewing is expanding to Virginia Park, at 8517 Second Avenue, Detroit. Co-founder and partner Jason Caya said they hope to open mid-summer, and this location will not only focus on their beer – they will offer at least nine beers on tap, mixed in with a few ciders – but coffee as well, roasted on site. If all goes well Tenacity will also expand to wine and cocktails, currently pending state licensing approval. “We know a little bit about a lot, and plan to offer a lot,” Caya said. “We’re really excited about that.” Tenacity will have pastries and a similar food menu to their Flint location for lunch and dinner, with tacos, burritos, and nachos. Another element they will continue in Detroit is their partnership with Feelgood Tap, a statewide initiative where breweries/restaurants pick one beer from their menu and donate part of their proceeds to that month’s selected non-profit.
