Saugatuck Brewing Company Is Just One Reason To Love Saugatuck!

Posted on: September 4, 2018   |   Posted in: Food & Drink, Getaways, Things To Do In Saugatuck

The Saugatuck Brewing Company is just one of our many reasons to love life in Saugatuck.  There is always enough happening in our ‘right-sized’ town to keep us engaged, intrigued, and enjoying life at all times … 23 Craft Tasting Rooms within 10 miles of Wickwood? Amazing! But, today we want to focus on the joy brought to us by our local craft brewery.

In Saugatuck, the action pretty much happens without any hassle. No long lines. No traffic jams. Of course, when you stay at Wickwood Inn, you also have a guaranteed private parking space …just another perk of your stay.

But, what exactly does “right-sized mean” when it comes to a town? Well … we got to thinking about the things every good town should have: 

  • Great coffee shop? Check.
  • Several fantastic restaurants proudly featuring our local farms? Indeed.
  • Interesting shopping at unique stores and boutiques? You betcha.
  • Lively arts scene? Doesn’t get much better.
  • Gorgeous outdoor scenery and access to great outdoor activities? Um, yes. Have you seen our dunes, trails, dark sky, and beaches?
  • Good places to work out? Options.
  • Local brewery? A must!

“Beer, if drunk in moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit and promotes health.”

Saugatuck Brewing Company (SBC) features a large Pub with an extensive food menu, 16 taps, hard cider, wine, and a seasonal patio for outdoor dining. The newest addition is known as The Barrel Room: a second tap room where you can get a close look at the barrel aging process, enjoy 15 beers on tap, play bumper pool, shuffle board, darts and pinball. Of course, SBC also has an excellent live music scene, so you may want to wear your dancing shoes!

Our favorite part of the fun at SBC? We get the chance to become our own brewmasters! Saugatuck Brewing Company is proud to be the only brewery in Michigan to feature a Brew On Premise Program. The brewmasters of SBC provide the recipes, natural ingredients, professional brewing equipment and the expertise to guide you through the process. In just 4 hours, you’ll have your batch brewing. Simply return 2-3 weeks later to sample and bottle. Choose a style of beer you love, or work with the SBC crew to create something entirely unique. The perfect thing for that next backyard bonfire, wedding, holiday, birthday party, or just to have in your own refrigerator. 

“Most people hate the taste of beer—to begin with. It is, however, a prejudice.”
