Shelby, the general manager at the popular Michigan based brewery, Jolly Pumpkin, began working with the company in 2008. With several other locations, the Jolly Pumpkin in Detroit only opened months ago in April 2015 and has been a hit in its new location ever since. Shelby started her career with Michigan Management Service 10 years ago, working her way up from serving and bartending to eventually general managing the Jolly Pumpkin in Detroit. Jolly Pumpkin is proud to locally source all of their ingredients. The pizzeria and brewery specializes in their own brewed craft beer and handmade pizzas – the perfect pairing of food and drink.If it is your first time visiting Jolly Pumpkin, be sure to try their most popular beer, ëBam,í creatively named after the ownerís dog. This handcrafted artisan golden ale features a refreshing balance of spicy malts, hops, and yeast. Shelby describes the tastes of different ales as ranging in ësourness.í The sour aspect of these ales come from being brewed in oak barrels, much like a fine wine. It is recommended to try the ëChicken and Kale Pizza,í featuring a sauce of sweet potato cream and topped with goat cheese, caramelized onions, shaved chicken, and kale – a deliciously different kind of pizza. Between the food, artisan ales, and people you will find at Jolly Pumpkin, there is nothing quite like this unique eat. If you are in the Detroit area, treat yourself to a round of ale and pizza at Jolly Pumpkin.
