Saugatuck Brewing Company

Saugatuck’s Micro Brewery

With its “Saison Belgian Ale” gaining rave reviews at the Michigan Brewers Guild- there’s much to celebrate at the Saugatuck’s own Brewing Company. “The beer is light and refreshing with just a little bitter bite exactly what a Saison should taste like”, the press praised. All of their beers are available all over town and at the Brewing Company at the Blue Star Antique Pavilion.
