An Ohio transplant says "Hello Detroit" on beer cans at its new Brush Park pub and café.

Saucy Brew Works, which opened for real Saturday after a one-day soft launch, adds a hazy imperial ale named Hello Detroit for its outpost on John R Street in Brush Park. The four-year-old Cleveland business, which has two other Ohio sites, serves wings, sandwiches, thin-crust pizza (10 varieties and three sizes), salads and shareable snacks -- meatballs, roasted cauliflower and Bavarian pretzels. (See the menu.)

Craft beer is the main draw, of course, with about two dozen or more rotating choices in cans, on draft and in carry-out growlers. 

This weekend's Detroit debut came 10 days later than originally announced "due to conflicts outside of our company and reach," it posted. The newcomer is the first restaurant at Bedrock’s City Modern residential and commercial development just north of downtown. Outside tables will be added for spring and summer. 

"We love Detroit and what's going on here. It has a similar vibe to our hometown in Cleveland," co-owner Brent Zimmerman says in a news release

The first location outside its home state also is the first with a coffee menu and early morning hours. Selections include house roast, pour-overs, espresso and specialty coffees "inspired by Saucy beers such as What’s His Nuts, a vanilla stout with peanut butter and coffee, and Modern Crimes, a toasted coconut porter," the posting says.
