    Default Bar & dive suggestions

    I'm trying to dig up some good off the way bars & dinners in about an hour's (+or-) ride of the Canton Plymouth area. Any suggestions? Even a general store out in the boonies will do.

    More than an hour but I'm a big fan of Dark Horse in Marshall.
    If you're heading towards the ghetto there's The Stone House, South of the State Fairgrounds. They have a burnout pit.
    Grand Trunk Tavern (Foran's) is my favorite downtown.
    On my side of town there's Eastside Tavern, a former speakeasy literally in someone's (Frank's) basement.

    Been going to this place for >40 years. Still my favorite joint. Bell's beer on tap, or you can get a can of Stroh's for $1.50. Great burgers.

    Plus, the Inverness is smack in the middle of the WSL. From the Inverness you can head out to Waterloo, Pinckney, etc.

    I like to goto Dragonmead out in Roseville. It's not a dive bar, but a brewery...

    +1 on the Inverness, a definite favorite.

    Another one is Boneheads in Willis, MI. About halfway between Belleville and Milan.

    The Little Brown Jug in Maybee has a great burger, and it's smack dab in the middle of the 'Tail of The Anole'.

    Alcohol, Tobbaco and Firearms should be a convenience store, not a government agency.

    If there weren't a bunch of great microbreweries I'd agree with you. Unfortunately I can't pick the best out of them.
    Kuhnhenn's in Warren has great beer even if the location isn't great and the service can be a challenge.
    Founder's in GR has both great beer and an awesome location.

    Bell's on tap?! I foresee that I'll be on a 1st name basis with the staff by the end of the season... I used to make table lamps from the bubba kegs of Oberon I drank. The ex wife used to joke if I had kept 'em all I could have built garage with them.
