Our Beer

Our eight tap system proudly hoist our four flagships that are always on tap, with an ever evolving rotation of tasty experimental beers. You never know what will be on tap! We cater to our wonderful and spontaneous four seasons and will have seasonal beers for when it’s snowing in July (hopefully not). From funky IPA’s, ambers, browns, sours, orange ginger witbiers, to even cookie infused stouts; the sky is the limit. Stop in and see the brewer and give your recommendation of your favorite style of beer you would like to see on tap in the future.

History

Founded in June of 2015, The Lake Charlevoix Brewing Company is the second venture of the Round Lake Group LLC. The Brewery is located in the former storage area for the 180 foot US Coast Guard vessel named the Acacia. Once the Acacia was decommissioned, the area sat vacant for several years and acted as a depository for the City of Charlevoix. The space stored everything from boat parts to even a timpani and xylophone. In the summer of 2014, the Round Lake Group partners caught wind of the location and fell in love. Through several City Counsel presentations, a myriad of architectural drawings, several neighboring brewery tours, and a lot of cement cutting, the Lake Charlevoix Brewing Co. was born! Nestled just feet from the picturesque Round Lake, the Lake Charlevoix Brewing Co. is the best place to sit back, watch the boats, and enjoy great craft beer and food.

The Brewery

Lake Charlevoix Brewing Company is very proud to have purchased their 5-barrel brew system and fermenters from Psycho Brew in Greenville, Michigan. They fabricate all of their equipment using 100% American made steel and utilize as many American products as possible. Inspired on our first brew day on May 4, 2015 the brew equipment was amply named after Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer, the fermenters are named after Santa’s 8 reindeer. The brew system is Rudolf, and Mrs. and Ms. Claus (Brite Tanks) live in the North Pole (Walk in cooler). We have four 2.5 BBL fermenters and four 5 BBL fermenters standing proudly.
