Official Beer Destination: Mudgie's Deli
There are a lot of delis in Detroit all competing for our deli dining dollars. But Mudgie's Deli in Corktown is our favorite. And not just because Mudgie's now serves Michigan beers, wines, and meads (a little bit because of that, but not entirely), but because Mudgie's has been serving some of the best sandwiches in the city since they opened in 2008. As an "authentic artisan deli," Mudgie's makes everything in-house from scratch - the soups, the salads and salsas and sauces and spreads, the meatloaf; they even roast their own corned beef, which is a signature item among signature items. Whatever they don't make themselves they get from other local companies, like Calder Dairy, Great Lakes Coffee, Dearborn Sausage Co., Brownwood Farms (there's a whole list of local purveyors on the menu). Owner Greg Mudge has supported local products since the day he opened his doors, and with the recent addition of a bistro liquor license Mudgie's is promoting some of the best products in Michigan.
For Detroit Beer Week, Mudgie's will run a $15 sandwich + soup + Michigan beer special for lunch and dinner for the full 11 days, October 17-27. They'll also feature food specials infused with Michigan beer - beer-braised meats, beer-based soups, beer chili, and whatever else Greg comes up with. We'll have more menu details as the dates approach!
