North Shore Style brewing.
It’s more than just “hoppy beer.”
It’s storied beer.


It’s crafting what you know, brewing with a sense of place, and capturing the inspiration in our adventures. Every step is curated from the hand selection of hops and malts, to the choosing of aging barrels. And at the heart of it all, the purest Lake Superior waters.
