About The Brewery

The art of craft. Each bottle of our craft beer and artisan spirits captures a flavor, a harvest, a season, a moment in time.

We honor those who put imagination, creativity and inspiration into their work. Our beer and spirits pair perfectly with a blank canvas, fertile soil, a blinking cursor, an empty plate or the hint of a spark in someone’s eye. The opportunity for art is everywhere.

We celebrate the artist in all of us. We celebrate the art of craft.


About The Beerdm-bottle-small.png

Art in fermented form. Craft beer isn’t a novelty. It’s not a gimmick. Or at least it shouldn’t be. So what is craft beer?

It’s a nod to early artisans like those who first plowed fields, prayed for rain, tended the soil, and reaped the harvest. It’s managing the delicate balance between knowledge, inspiration and hard work.

There are no short cuts.

We know that at the end of a long day, we’ll have made a beverage worth the sweat, worth the sacrifice, and worthy of the craftsmen who came before us.

About Our Spirits

A spirited life deserves a spirited drink. After almost a decade of craft-brewing, distilling was a natural extension for us. As perpetual students of fermentation, the art of creating alcohol, the next step of distilling into a more pure state, came easy. We coax flavor all the way from the brewhouse through our Prohibition-era still and into the barrel or the bottle, until it meets your glass.

Our philosophy remains true; we are dedicated to discovering artful nuances while delivering unique and interesting spirits in their most tasteful form. Inspired by our desire to pour spirits and cocktails alongside our beers in our growing pub in Holland, MI – we have created a balanced portfolio of spirits that are a friend to any bartender.

If it seems simple – it is – the way most great things are.

In the end, we’ve created a line of spirits that can live up to your own artful way of life.
