Yes, our beer is available throughout the U.P., Northern Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Are you a part of Bell’s?
Our founder—Larry Bell of Bell’s Brewery—had always dreamed of opening a brewery in the Upper Peninsula—little vestiges of those dreams can be found in many of the classic Bell’s brands, which pay tribute to the U.P. in their names and label artwork. His dream became a reality when we broke ground on our 20 BBL Escanaba brewhouse in 2013.

Do you brew Oberon?
No, we are a division of Bell’s Brewery, Inc., but we are a completely separate brewery and brew an entirely different line of beers – unique to our U.P. home.

Are you hiring?
We accept cover letters and resumes and keep them on file in case future positions become available You can email them to us via our Contact page or drop them off at the brewery. Open positions are posted to our Blog.

What types of ingredients do you use?
All of our beers are made with hops, barley, water and yeast. We also use locally sourced oats and rye in a number of our beers.
