Welcome to Guardian’s FIRST Virtual Maker’s Market!

A year ago, we planned an EXCELLENT Winter Maker’s Market to be held in the brewery, similar to the one we held in 2019. Then, the pandemic hit the world, things changed, and we were banned from gathering indoors this December. So, we thought, Michiganders are tough! We will hold the market outdoors. That plan worked really well until we found out the day of the market was supposed to be 28-35F, rainy, with 25 mph Easterly winds… right into our patio area. Time for Plan C.

On December 12 and 13, we are hosting a Virtual Maker’s Market here AND a Guardian Staff Pop-Up at the brewery (3657 63rd Street, Saugatuck). The Pop-Up will be held from 12-8PM. All you have to do is swing by the brewery table on your way to dine outside OR order your goods via our online system and either pick them up or have them delivered. We have so many amazing artists to share with you, so please scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, check out our artists, and shop locally this holiday season. It makes our community so much stronger when you do. Cheers! ~ Kim, Kate, and Team Guardian

ART + BEER = INKYBEER Inky Beer was born out of the desire to make conscious connections between beer and art (mostly graffiti and tattoos) in our travels. Join Dr. B and Kim as we embark on our new adventure, meeting new people and cataloging their ink and love of beverages for your enjoyment.
