Yooper™ Ale is a nod to what makes us Yoopers. Just like life in the U.P., it is simple, yet beautiful. Offering a smooth mouthfeel from U.P. grown oats, this sessionable pale ale is rounded out with bright citrus aromas. So grab some neighbors and celebrate what makes life north of the bridge so special.
We are a young brewery, but our passion runs deep.
Our founder and president, Larry Bell (yes, of Bell’s Brewery) has family roots that go back a 100 years.
That family connection has brought him back to the U.P. time and time again and opening a brewery here fulfills a lifelong dream that began underneath the falls at Tahquamenon.
From Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, where we call home, to Northern Wisconsin our beer is brewed and available where it’s meant to be enjoyed – the North.
With a 20-barrel brewhouse in Esky (Escanaba to those unfamiliar), built primarily from local contractors with equipment made in the USA, we brew and package beer that celebrates the beauty and uniqueness of the North and our community.
You can find our beers on draught and in bottles throughout the U.P. and Northern Wisconsin. But you won’t find our beer below the (Mackinac) Bridge. Just one more reason to come up and visit this gorgeous and wondrous place we are proud to call home.
