Our Story

Cheboygan Brewing Company first began in 1872 when the town of Cheboygan played an important role in the logging industry. The brewery grew from there but closed in 1911 as the lumber business moved on.

In 2011 two entrepreneurs who were inspired by the heritage of the original Cheboygan Brewing Company and the beauty of Northern Michigan, decided to open the brewery once again. They assembled a dynamic team of Michiganders to transform Cheboygan Brewing Company from its original German traditions to the modern alehouse it is today.

The city of Cheboygan is a northern hub and a vacationer’s dream with endless trails, pristine forests, and beautiful, sparkling inland waterways within minutes of each other. The enjoyment of the outdoors is where we draw our inspiration from in the handcrafted beers we create. We celebrate the relaxed, pure nature of Northern Michigan in every sip and aim to provide that vacation feeling, anywhere. From our sparkling clean lakes to the sparkling bubbles in your glass, we all raise a toast to Northern Michigan.
