    Different "Series," if that means anything.

    Also, the Founders in Detroit is sorta meh. Everything looks like it came from Ikea.

    I know... but potential BA series. (fingers crossed)

    Not nearly as nice as GR for sure. Not very inspiring or cool. Hopcat has a much nicer vibe, IMHO. JP too.

    Agreed. The Hopcat and JP spots in Detroit are great, and infinitely better than their spots in Royal Oak.

    lol @ RO. Yeah, not been. Don't plan on venturing into that pool.
    With the spots in midtown I rarely venture off I-75 past 94.

    I will say that, as a local, I really like the idea of the Mothership series. I hope they wise up regarding limits on those bottles, but the concept itself is great. I'm a big believer in rewarding locals.
