Beards Brewery was founded in 2012 by two Petoskey locals who had a common passion: craft. Armed with determined intent, Ben Slocum and Peter Manthei began a home brewing partnership, which, fueled by demand, led them to take the plunge into commercial brewing. In between finishing college degrees, both brainstormed and built the beginnings of the small but mighty brewery that opened on Howard Street in the heart of downtown Petoskey.
In those first few years at Beards Brewery, from August 2012 to April 2017 to be exact, we created over 100 delicious recipes inspired by local, seasonal products as well as outdoor activities and our beautiful surrounding area of Northern Michigan. Veteran beers like Serendipity Porter, Luna, and Oh! The Citranity! were born here. Our original pub featured 10 taps, countless board games, local art, a well-used record player, unique community events (we hosted a Dinosaur Dig & Back to the Future parties!) and a cozy space for small groups of family and friends to meet, catch-up, and enjoy a good brew.
