Guardian Brewing Moves Optimistically Toward Opening Late 2018

Hello again, Guardian fans! It’s been a while since we shared updates on our project and it’s been a long road since the beginning of our build-out this summer. Despite extremely long waiting times at the MLCC (will approve our liquor license any day now) and the DEQ (will approve our brewery and restaurant to run on septic early November), Guardian continues to build out their property at the old Red Barn site.

We thought we would share some (before, during, and after) interior and exterior photos of updates, as our team continues to build a custom bar and custom booths covered in old Red Barn Theater flooring, paint all surfaces, install beautiful long-draw draft lines hidden in a barn beam, set-up offices for our management team, and organize our auxiliary kitchen. (Click on photos below to see a slide show.)

We will let the community know when our grand openings will occur as soon as we get a few more permits and inspections approved.

Thank you all again for your unwavering support. You making us feel sincerely appreciated and welcome in our community.

Craft beer is coming soon and we cannot wait to share it all with you.

We’re moving to Michigan!

Guardian Brewing Company will move to its new home in Saugatuck, MI this summer.

CO to MI_Guardian

After 19 months of searching through 100 properties near Saugatuck, MI, we’re excited to announce that we finally are under contract on a property (details TBA) in Saugatuck, MI and will be moving there to make our brewpub dreams come true in June. We have a strong team helping us work through surveys and zoning for our property and we look forward to sharing our progress as it happens.

Why Michigan you may ask? With our roots being in the Midwest and having spent weekends of our childhood playing in the Great Lakes, we knew it would be a great destination. Then, coupled with Michigan’s phenomenal craft beer scene, we knew our unique project had its home.

Thanks so much for being fans of Guardian so early on in our progress and we will be in touch so we can meet at the taproom for a pint when we’re open.

Slainte and Cheers to all. More about this awesome update and our progress soon. ~Kim
