We are passionate about barrel-aged and weird beer.
Guardian is a destination craft brewery with a mixture of both year-round and rotating taps. We brew a wide variety of beer styles from classic and traditional, like our “Clurichaun” Irish Stout to those with a modern twist to the recipe, like our “Dutch Mafia” Stroopwafel Cream Ale. With twenty-four taps at Guardian, you’re sure to find the fermented beverage you seek.
We focus on brewing with real ingredients.
Guardian uses real, whole fruit, nuts, spices, and other ingredients in our beer recipes whenever possible. Our tested process gives our beer flavors that are true to the actual ingredients used. Because of this, we recommend any fruited and or spiced beer from Guardian be drank fresh, not aged.
We make independent craft beer.
Guardian is the first 100% queer-owned and 100% women-owned brewery in Michigan. We carefully choose the suppliers and partners that provide quality ingredients for our recipe. We are grateful to have the ability to create innovative beers that celebrate our independence.
