Brewery

We’d love to, but unfortunately it is against the law for us to mail or ship beer straight to our customers. You can check our beer locator map for locating some near you!

Good question! Believe it or not, brewery employees don’t just sit around and drink beer all day… except once we punch out. Here at Midland Brewing Company, safety is our number one priority and being responsible is our secret strategy behind that. We may taste the beer throughout the day, but it’s for quality control and educating our crew about new releases and sensory panels.

We like knowing our patrons want to learn about our facility and processes! If you contact our events team at events@midlandbrewing.com, they’ll work with our brewing team to get something set up.

We don’t mail stickers or labels. Stop into the restaurant and ask your server or bartender for some and stop by our booth if you see us at a beer festival! We always have some swag on hand.

We sell 1/6 barrels and 1/2 barrels out of our restaurant. You can call or email us about what’s available. We do charge a $30 keg deposit which is refunded upon return of the empty keg.

We work with a handful of Michigan distributors. You can find out more about what ones below.

Unfortunately, we don’t. You can always contact us or stop in to purchase one of our 1/6 barrels; or if it’s the party of the century you are throwing, think about a 1/2 barrel!

You can find our selections available all across the great state of Michigan! Check out our Beer Locator map and you’ll find a list of majority of our accounts and if you don’t see anything nearby you, shoot us an email or message us on Facebook. We’ll do our best to track down some of the locations closest to you where you’ll find us on the shelves.
