Granite City Food & Brewery Opens in Troy



Published:

MINNEAPOLIS – Granite City Food & Brewery (NASDAQ: GCFB) on Tuesday opened its first location in Michigan at West Big Beaver near I-75 in Troy.

The new restaurant and brewery is part of a long-time dream of President and founder Steve Wagenheim and Chief Concept Officer Dean Oakey, who both grew up in metro Detroit and graduated from Michigan State University.

The restaurant, at 699 Big Beaver, serves signature beers, made on premise, including Duke of Wellington (an English ale) and Broad Axe Stout (an authentic Irish beer). The handcrafted beers are moderately priced and offer unique styles and flavors.

Beer lovers can also join the Mug Club and enjoy food discounts, special tap beer offerings and rewards points for special offers from Granite City.

As part of the grand opening, customers, now through Monday will receive a free membership to the Mug Club (a $10 value), which entitles members to special benefits including 10 percent off food, including Sunday Brunch, special tap beer offerings and rewards points for special offers and parties at Granite City. Details are found at www.gcfb.com. In addition, a percentage of the first week’s sales will be donated to The Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan.

“We felt this site was ideal for Granite City Food & Brewery, which is a polished casual restaurant that cooks all menu items from scratch and prepares food fresh daily, along with brewing our own beer,” Wagenheim said. “We are honored to join the vibrant Troy and Detroit-area restaurant scene and to create 150 new jobs in the area,” Wagenheim added. “We have had our eye on developing this location for years and it is exciting to see our vision become a reality.”

Granite City opened its first restaurant in 1999 and is expanding nationwide; there are currently 28 restaurants in 13 states. Additional information about Granite City Food & Brewery can be found at www.gcfb.com.
