Welcome to the Park

Northwest Detroit neighbors ready to welcome the Rosedale Beer & Bistro brewpub/restaurant




Owners Derrick A. Collins, Justin Riopelle, and Josh Guitar will be bringing a brewpub/restaurant concept to a region of Detroit that has often been overlooked during the revitalization process.

Rosedale Beer & Bistro is a venture by chef Collins, brewmaster Riopelle, and restaurateur Guitar, who is also a resident in North Rosedale Park. They will tie front and back of the house together with a unique menu, handcrafted beer, a full bar, and a full-service dining approach that has been scarce in Northwest Detroit for years.

Collins, a native Detroiter, is proud to put his name on the growing list of businesses with African-American ownership interests.

Hoping to open before the new year, the trio of food and beer professionals has to hold off a little while longer before they can begin the necessary construction and remodeling.

“As of now, we are awaiting permits, so there isn't anything to show aside from a building that needs some love,” says Riopelle. “We are still waiting on our logo.”

The team — who spent time working together at the Detroit Beer Co. — are leaning on their individual expertise to create a successful dining and drinking experience.

Winning a grant from the Motor City Match program and being in the top 10 candidates for a Hatch Detroit grant has helped generate more excitement as the partners start to make their dream a reality.

Local economic development organizations have whole-heartedly supported the cause, and the Detroit Development Fund is acting as a lending partner for the project.

Once the legalities are set, the team plans on spending many late nights working to open the doors and start serving the community.
