The best hidden gems off the beaten path of the brew trail. Did your hometown craft brewery make the list?

MICHIGAN—Bell’s. Atwater. Short’s. Founders. As a craft beer destination, Michigan’s hometown heroes need no introduction. But these star players are far from the only choices for Michigan beer lovers. Michigan ranks sixth in the country and first in the Midwest for most breweries, boasting about 400 establishments across the state.

Although we love the craft breweries of larger cities like Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Traverse City, some of Michigan’s most authentic brewery experiences—and best craft beers!—are found off the beaten path in its charming small towns. You may not see these names on the shelves at your local Meijer, but they’re definitely worth a trip.

Ready to get your growler filled? Here are 30 of the best small town craft breweries Michigan has to offer.

Brown Iron Brewhouse is a beer-centric smokehouse serving up craft brews with homemade barbecue.

In addition to taps that rotate daily, the brewhouse is known for its applewood-smoked offerings and gluten-free options.

The brewery has since bounced back successfully; as of late 2021, they started offering food via their food truck venture, the Grind Wagon.
