Our Story

Michigan Brew was founded by two friends who wanted to make a difference in Grayling. They sought to create a space for individuals to relax, get work done, or enjoy spending time with friends in a comfortable atmosphere. With their love of Michigan coffee houses, craft distilleries, wineries and breweries, they wanted to bring their favorites to downtown Grayling.
