About the brewery

Beards Brewery was founded in 2012 by two Petoskey natives 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 business you see today.

In the first few years at Beards Brewery we have created over 100 delicious recipes inspired by local, seasonal products of Northern Michigan. Our original pub featured 10 taps, but our new expanded home has allowed us to increase to 20. Along with our Petoskey pub and brewery we also have a 15 barrel production facility in Charlevoix. Built to feed our growing distribution in Michigan, Beards beer is not only on draft across the entire state of Michigan, but can also be found in cans at local shops.

We have expanded our pub and moved from our original home (207 A Howard) just a few blocks away to 215 East Lake Street, Petoskey. With this we’ve added a full food menu and much more seating.

Here at Beards we embrace quality and balance in all of our practices. And we extend that belief to all things craft—whether it’s music, food, or art—we are always open to new collaborations and opportunities.

It’s still early in our story, but armed with a great team, we are off to a fantastic and adventurous start. At Beards we work hard, focusing on quality, creativity and community. Stop in to watch us brew, and enjoy a pint or two.
