Double Red IPA, 8.5%

Red over red

Sweet caramel malts and hops go head to head for control of this imperial Red Ale. The hops bring flavors and aromas of pine, passion fruit, peach, mango and citrus. The malts fall short and leave the sweet caramel as just an afterthought. Welcome to hop heaven.

Our Story

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.  We’re two brothers with a passion for consistent and fresh tasting craft beer.

What you can expect at the brewery

  • Knowledgeable, welcoming, and friendly staff.
  • Consistent and fresh tasting craft beer year round at our taproom.
  • One-of-a-kind outdoor beer garden with an ‘Up North’ twist for your drinking pleasure.
  • On-site hop garden.
  • 10-14 taps with main stays and rotating taps.
  • Not just “hoppy” beers. Although it’s in our name, we brew all styles of beer, for all different tastes.

Looking for more? It’s all in the palm of your hand…Our blog, newsletter and other social networks are a great way to follow our progress and interact with us!
