Slightly sweet and bready lager with a crisp clean finish.
A crisp, approachable, no BS beer. Whether you are cautiously exploring the depths of craft beer, or simply looking for a refreshing reward to top off the day, this beer won’t do you wrong. Slightly malty sweet with a crisp carbonated finish. Now made with 100% Michigan Malted Barley from Pilot Malt House, and Leelanau grown hops.
Light and medium toasted malts are laid upon a sweet, caramel base to contribute flavors of freshly baked biscuits and toasted bread. Just enough Leelanau County hops are added to balance the sweetness, making this a very drinkable and enjoyable ale.
A light bodied and highly drinkable brown with malty flavors of caramel, biscuits, and sourdough bread are blended carefully with just the right touch of roasted English chocolate malts
Light, medium body Session IPA. Slightly tropical, citrusy with a hint of pine.
Refreshing hop flavors of lemon balm and orange rind. Well-balanced.

Shacket DRIPA features a soft malty sweetness covered by a massive DDH of Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial hops. Delicate sweetness, floral and citrusy. Delicious.
The Shirt/Jacket is undeniably the greatest winter invention EVER created. It’s never too light and never too heavy! Thank you for all you have done for us, Shacket. Winter wouldn’t be survivable with out you.
Fruity and complex aromas and flavors. The high attenuating Belgian yeast strain also adds a spicy characteristic. Medium body with a dry finish.
An extended, double boil produced this moderately sweet, full-bodied ale. Pronounced deep caramel and stone fruit flavors are balanced by subtle hints of pepper and spice
Smooth and creamy. Dark-roasted coffee aromas and flavors of espresso and semi-sweet chocolate. A healthy dose of flaked oatmeal adds to the creamy body.
This rich, extremely smooth, Russian Imperial Stout is brewed exclusively with hops grown on the Leelanau Peninsula with the addition of locally made espresso, from Nella’s So Good Coffee in Empire, MI, and a healthy dose of cacao nibs
This Cider is a robust blend of handpicked wild apples and a hint of cherry that delivers a balanced sweet-tart flavor.
McIntosh, Rhode Island Greening, and Northern Spy. Everything’s better with a little Smack. This crowd pleaser is sweet and tart with full apple flavor.
Not too sweet for the dry wine drinkers and not too dry for the sweet wine drinkers. Candied grapefruit aromas with a beautiful soft citric cleansing palette.
Originally from Holland, MI then later residing in Chicago, it was time for us to journey back to Michigan and create a very unique four-seasons Microbrewery and Beer Garden in beautiful Northern Michigan. With family ties to Suttons Bay, it was the perfect location to both embrace the local beer culture while also embracing the outdoors.
Hop Lot opened in the spring of 2015 just south of Downtown Suttons Bay. Nestled between scenic M22, the bay and the area’s TART recreational trail, we are a great stop if you’re between touring the peninsula, biking, hiking, boating, ice fishing or snowmobiling!
Hop Lot focuses on Traditional style Ales including IPAs, Blondes, Browns, Ambers, Scotch Ales and Stouts while also introducing Belgians and Seasonals to our guests. If beer isn’t your thing, we also offer multiple wines, ciders and meads on tap. In 2016, we were voted 4th Best New Brewery in Michigan by MLive.
The taproom also offers a year-round kitchen that rotates menus with the seasons and changing palates. In the summer our chef will focus on smoked BBQ and other summer fare while in the fall/winter, offers a warmer comfort and hearty menu utilizing the local harvest.
While you’re here, treat yourself to a beverage and lunch or dinner in our cozy ‘up north’ taproom or spread out and enjoy the four seasons ¾ acre beer garden. Hop Lot is extremely family-friendly and encourages parents to let their kids…be kids in the spacious beer garden. As the seasons change, so does the beer garden. Summer: Walk through the hop garden, play a game of bags, roast a marshmallow by the campfire and listen to a live local musician. Fall: Sit by one of the multiple fire pits and take in the scenery of the maple leaves changing colors. Winter/Early Spring: Grab your group and enjoy the comfort of one of our heated and lit igloos or stand by the campfires.
If you’re visiting the area, please feel free to ask any team member recommendations for outside activities, scenic drives, etc. Might as well get the full experience while you’re up here!
