Spring Is Finally Here

It’s been a whirlwind three months since we opened our doors at Guardian Brewing Company. We have been joyously overwhelmed by the amount of gratitude felt for all the local and neighborly support since we opened, as opening in winter on the Lakeshore can be a little daunting in its quiet nature and few businesses open year round. We feel as if we saw and experienced the real year-round Saugatuck/Douglas/Fennville/Holland residents. Thank you for supporting us, becoming regulars, joining our mug club, bringing friends and family to our space, and having fun with us through the -30F temps this winter. It makes future winters less daunting and has us even more excited about sun and summer coming quickly. But, for now, we are beginning to see beautiful spring growing in our area…and for us, spring will mean projects!

Projects on the docket include a spring cleaning day (APRIL 1 WE ARE CLOSED ALL DAY), chef’s gardens, more painting, brush trimming, and of course, a patio for outside dining and eating (complete with YARD GAMES!). I live for a game of bocce, really. We’re excited to work with Ed Z. from Gen 1 Architectural again with our patio plans and cannot wait to sip a cold one from our new patio bar with you, as soon as we can get it all built! In the meantime, thanks for your patience and see you at the brewery. We’re open every day and hours are the same until summertime.
