Guardian is a destination craft brewery that opened in 2018. It has 10 year-round taps and 12 seasonal and barreled-aged taps offering a wide variety of styles that are “true to style” or have a modern twist, such as our “Nessie” Imperial IPA with Blue Juniper Berries. Our draft list features 22 craft beers, 2 hard ciders, and 14 wines. We also have cocktails that feature Michigan, regional, and imported liquor options. Our kitchen’s menu focuses on fresh food sourced locally and regionally and as the seasons change, so does our menu. We make most menu items in-house, including fermenting our own sauerkraut and kimchi, and pride ourselves on serving great meat, vegetarian, and vegan dishes. Our restaurant has seats for 92 people, including 13 around the horseshoe bar. Our space is light and airy, equally comfortable for a dinner with your family or a date night. In 2019, we installed a 3,500 ft.2 patio with an awning covering 50 additional seats. We feature weekly live music and have a variety of events planned for the year, including monthly Beer School. Guardian serves as a third space for our community and a destination for out-of-town visitors and craft beer lovers.
