The Petoskey Brewing Story

The Petoskey Brewing Story 

 



Here in the great beer state there are a multitude of breweries to choose from, both local and beyond, which makes it easy to find great liquid for your drinking pleasure. As summer days roll by and many vacation up in the Great North to escape the city heat while others seek solace in brews from the land above. Petoskey Brewing provides that escape with its artisan beers that highlight the best that Northern Michigan has to offer.



Petoskey Brewing’s story has two beginnings; one starts with a friendship and one with a building. The brewery is located in the “Old Brewery” in Petoskey, which back at the turn of the century produced Petoskey Sparkle Beer. The original Petoskey Brewing Company eventually faded out, although the building stayed active serving as various shops including an antique shop and a goat farm.



The second story is about the partnership and friendship between the brewery’s co-owners, Patrick Dowd and Lou Gostinger. In 2008 the two men bonded over shared interests to create a business based on creating exceptional beer. By 2011 they closed on the “Old Brewery” building and started work on creating their product; beer. Their beer is always unfiltered, with water pumped directly from an artisan spring well, which gives the beer a drying finish due to mineral content.



The brewery’s story continued with Petoskey Brewing’s launch into the Grand Rapids market to start off the 2013 year. The next step will be the launch of their product in package, focusing on distributing Horny Monk, North 45, and Mind’s Eye in cans throughout the area. Look for their beer, on draft or in cans, throughout the area and get a taste of the Great North.
