New Brewery Alert: Barrel & Beam

The Marquette-based brewery focuses on farmhouse and barrel-aged ales


Published:

The saying, “something old, something new,” isn’t just for weddings. At least not when it comes to beers made by relative newcomer Barrel & Beam. The Marquette brewery opened in January 2018 and is focusing on farmhouse and barrel-aged ales. Barrel & Beam takes the old and new concept to heart, making an Old-World product line from ingredients imported from Belgium and France, plus a line of New-World beers featuring Michigan ingredients. The building is old and new, as well. The owners spent some $2 million to rescue the famed Northwoods Supper Club, which opened in the 1930s but closed in 2007 and fell into disrepair. True to that “Up North” spirit, you might have to do a bit of hunting to find these beers. The owner is starting small, hand-delivering samples around the U.P., northern Michigan, and northeast Wisconsin. Check them out at barrelandbeam.com, and happy deer season!
