Here is further evidence that while it still has a long way to go, the long-beleaguered city of Detroit is indeed turning around. The Collective Tap
, a new craft beer store and tasting room, will be soon be opening its doors as the first craft beer retailer in the city. Focused on "enjoyment, education, and engagement", The Collective Tap will be much more than a beer store. With their main focus centering on Belgian and English beers, they will have a first class tasting bar where customers can sample products prior to purchasing them. Also, various classes and events will be held on different styles of beers and how, for new craft beer drinkers, to find one they like. In addition, the store's owner, Emily Miller, is Detroit's first female Cicerone Certified Beer Server.
