Petoskey Brewing

1844 M-119 |  231.753.2057

This Michigan microbrewery is located in Petoskey’s “Old Brewery,” which used to brew Petoskey Sparkle beer from 1898 to 1915. Since closing in 1915, the building has served as retail shops, a warehouse and perhaps even as a goat barn. Today, Northern Michigan beer is once again flowing inside the walls of the historic building.
