About the brewery

Our focus is on crafting one-of-a-kind, creative brews. If you taste something in our beers—like lemon, lavender, asparagus, cherry pies, or real pig—it’s because we put it there using only whole natural ingredients; after all… extracts are for sissies.

Right Brain beers can be found throughout the state of Michigan in cans, bottles, and on draft. However, we’re not just beer lovers; we’re art lovers, too. We’re advocates for anything creative, innovative, or odd. We Keep Beer Curious.
