Guardian is a destination craft brewery that opened in 2018. It has 8 year-round taps and 14 seasonal, one-off, and barreled-aged taps offering a wide variety of styles that range from classic to modern, such as our “Nessie” Imperial IPA with Blue Juniper Berries. Our draft list features 22 craft beers, 2 hard ciders, and 14 wines. We also have cocktails that feature Michigan, regional, and imported liquor options. Our kitchen’s menu focuses on fresh food sourced locally and regionally and as the seasons change, so does our menu. We make most menu items in-house and pride ourselves on serving great meat, vegetarian, and vegan dishes.

Our restaurant has seats for 92 people, including 13 around the horseshoe bar. Our space is light and airy, equally comfortable for a dinner with your family or a date night. In 2019, we installed a 3,500 square foot patio with an awning covering 50 additional seats and a six-foot gas fire pit. In 2020, we installed eight 6000 watt heaters under our awning for your outdoor dining comfort.

We feature weekly live music and have a variety of events planned each year, including Maker’s Markets, various workout classes, and our famous monthly Beer School. Guardian serves as a third space for our community and a destination for out-of-town visitors and craft beer lovers and foodies.
