Beer & Cider

We are passionate about barrel-aged beer and session beer.

Guardian Brewing Company is a destination craft brewery with several year-round, seasonal, barreled, and cask beer offerings. We will be making craft beer and cider when we open our new location, in Saugatuck, Michigan. Stay tuned to our menu for more information about our year-round and seasonal craft beer offerings.

(Below is a selection of beer recipe ideas, not yet a menu set in stone!)

(Note: ABV is alcohol by volume, or the percentage of alcohol in a drink)

Barrel Aged Craft Beer and Cider

  • Gin Barreled “Nessie” Imperial IPA: A 9% ABV American Imperial India Pale Ale with Mosaic hops, Cascade hops, and Juniper Berries, celebrating the unification of spice and hop aroma with American Oak
  • Anejo Tequila Barreled “Tengu” Wheat Ale: A 6% ABV American Wheat Ale brewed with Tangerines and Lemons. The blend of smoky, Anejo Tequila and wheat beer is crisp and refreshing in the summer
  • Bourbon Barreled “Kraken Hunter” Imperial Stout: An 11% ABV Russian Imperial Stout that is smooth and balanced to drink, with notes of dark chocolate, roastiness, and coffee. Bourbon Barrel aging this beer with and without fruit, coffee, other spices, will be a mainstay in our annual calendar
  • Bourbon and Brandy Barreled & Blended “Mountain Howler” Stout: An 8% ABV creamy, Sweet Stout with lactose, chocolate and roasted malts, and cocoa nibs. Blending vanilla with the deep, dark fruit flavor of Brandy will encourage the cocoa nibs to show their breadth of flavor
  • Red Wine Barreled “Pegacorn” Porter: A 7% ABV classic American porter boasting roasty flavors and drinkability. This beer will feature local cold-brewed coffee to round out the flavor profile. These flavors, mixed with the earthiness of red wine, brings the coffee profile to a new level
