Cheers to Beer

Grab your friends and celebrate your love for suds!

While beer itself has been a popular drink for ages, trendy craft beers and microbrews have been taking over in recent years, offering a plethora of flavor combinations never before imagined. The craze has struck Gaylord full force, and you can make your way through our extensive lineup of restaurants to sample what the Alpine Village has to offer!

Just a few of our favs from around the block:

Big Buck Brewery

The Big Buck is better than ever!  With new owners in recent years, an outstanding Brew Team and state-of-the-art equipment, this Gaylord icon has a focus on Michigan-made products.  Count on seeing some of your favs from before revitalized, along with exceptional new beers.

Snowbelt Brewing Company

Snowbelt Brewing Company, Gaylord’s downtown brewery, has unique craft beers on tap every day. Not only do they brew their own beer in house, but they also create “community beers,” with a portion of the sales going to a local charitable organization.

Pine Squirrel

Beer and sports go hand-in-hand, and that’s why you need to make a stop at the Pine Squirrel during the summer. Take in a softball game with a cool one out on the patio, then wander indoors for more than just a bite to eat!

Porter Haus

Otsego Lake views and brews greet you at one of Gaylord’s favorite stops along the Iron Belle Trail. Refuel your body and quench your thirst at Porter Haus after a day on our county’s largest lake or newest pathway.

Bennethum’s Northern Inn

Fine dining with an extensive wine collection are what Bennethum’s Northern Inn is known for, but their beer collection is equally impressive. Rustic yet refined, Bennethum’s caters to creating the perfect date night or casual dining experience, complete with a cold one.

Have fun sampling our suds in Gaylord, Michigan but stay responsible and use one of our taxi services to transport you and your friends back to comfortable lodging at one of our area hotels, motels, resorts or homes.
