Panel 1

Fresh Beer

We make independent craft beer.

We are a small, local brewery that produces full flavor craft beer and is 100% privately owned. We choose the suppliers that provide ingredients that go into our recipes and have the ability to create innovative beers that celebrate our independence.

We are passionate about barrel-aged and session beer.

Guardian is a destination craft brewery with several year-round, seasonal, barreled aged beer offerings. We brew a wide variety of styles that are true to style or have a modern twist to the recipe. With twenty taps at Guardian, you’re sure to find the beer you seek.

Beer School

Nine classes in 2019

Guardian Brewing Company is offering nine Beer School classes, open to the public (21+ only), in 2019. For more information, please read the details below each class or check out our Facebook event page.

To sign up for a class, please call 269-543-2238. (We accept all major credit cards as payment over the phone.)

Your instructor will be Kim Collins, a Certified Cicerone and the owner and Head Brewer of Guardian Brewing Company. Kim has been brewing professionally for seven years at six breweries. She is passionate about recipe research, the art of barrel aging, kettle sours, and session beers. Before and after Kim became a brewer, she taught a variety of university-level courses for 12 years at Indiana University, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and most recently Kalamazoo Valley Community College’s Sustainable Brewing Program. No matter how much Kim professes her love for craft beer, teaching is her life’s true passion.

Class Bios

PORTERS AND STOUTS – MAY 1
During this hour-long class, we will explore the history behind the two beer styles of Porter and Stout. Where did the styles begin? Where have American beer-makers taken the styles? This course includes 6 tasters of different beer styles we discuss in class. Come try a style you haven’t had before and learn about why it’s important to the world of craft beer.
