After that nice long walk, we went to lunch at Sava's, where we were unfortunately still full enough from breakfast that we had to split something. If you come hungry on a weekend, there is an unlimited brunch buffet that looked really good.
In the afternoon, we visited the locally beloved Dexter Cider Mill for a tasty apple cider donut and wine tasting. It was a small place and really cute.
|Yes, it is literally in a barn.|
|Herein lies booze.|
The distillery is set up to make a wide variety of cocktails with their spirits, so you can get more than a flight. And we happened to show up right when a neat jazz band was setting up! We enjoyed a few sets and had to jet to dinner.
|Random bands are the best bands.|
After dinner, we stopped at Beer Grotto to try a flight of some more local beers, but I don't think our hearts were in it. We had kind of had enough booze. But the place still had a great selection. The beer garden just across the street looked cute, too, but we didn't have time to get there, and their selection didn't look as wide as Beer Grotto.
Final thoughts on Ann Arbor
I enjoyed our visit to Ann Arbor - it's mostly a very walkable town with a variety of things to do to fill a weekend. The people could be a little preppy and sometimes acted like anyone who doesn't live in Ann Arbor must be an idiot. But they have the food and beer chops to back up their town as a destination for foodies and beer lovers. And probably if you like football, you'd enjoy that, too!
