Cherry Fest

Cider, 5.7%

This Cider is a robust blend of handpicked wild apples and a hint of cherry that delivers a balanced sweet-tart flavor.

Sex.

Sparkling Rose, 11%
A blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Muscat grapes

Hop Lot White

Riesling, 12%

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.

Smackintosh

Cider, 4.5%

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.

Rocket Power

IPA, 7.0%

Fruity esters, herbal tones and dominant citrus flavors provide the backbone to this medium bodied brew that starts out sweet and finishes with a clean bitterness

Kittywampus

Oatmeal Stout, 5.8%

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.

Rough Sawn

Amber Ale, 5.7%

IMG_2636

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.

 

 

I Hate White Rabbits

American Wheat, 4.9%

A crisp and refreshing summer wheat ale with citrusy tones

Tippy Canoe

American Wheat IPA, 5.4%

Made specifically for summer in the beer garden! The wheat addition lightens the body and softens the malt flavor.  Flavors of peach, grapefruit and orange citrus.

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!
