Haymarket Brewing Company Building Production Brewery in Bridgman, MI, Opening Spring 2016

Brewmaster Pete Crowley’s award-winning beers to be distributed throughout the Midwest

Chicago, IL - March 7, 2015 - Haymarket Brewing Company, which currently owns and operates Haymarket Pub & Brewery in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood, has purchased property in Bridgman, MI, with construction slated to begin immediately on a full-scale production brewery. The property is a former state police post on Red Arrow Highway. In addition to a production brewery, the existing structure will be remodeled to include a taproom and kitchen serving wood-fired pizzas and house-made sausages. The future brewery sits on 17 wooded acres, and will feature a large outdoor beer garden, as well as space to host a variety of outdoor events.
Owner and Brewmaster Pete Crowley is excited about the eastward expansion plan. “I’m proud to call myself a Chicagoan and be a part of its great craft brewing scene for over 15 years. During that time I met my business partner John Neurauter, who introduced me to beautiful Southwest Michigan. I am looking forward to joining a second amazing group of brewers and to be able to call both places my home,” says Crowley.

Crowley and Neurauter opened Haymarket Pub & Brewery in 2010, specializing in classic Belgian and contemporary American brewing styles, with an emphasis on hops, barrel aging and a wide variety of authentic Belgian yeast strains. The West Loop pub’s kitchen offerings include house-made sausages, smoked meats, specialty pizzas and other handcrafted fare. Crowley is a highly decorated brewer, having won over 70 local, national and international awards for his beers, including medals from the World Beer Cup®, Great American Beer Festival® and the Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer®. Varieties range from refreshing Pilsners to hoppy ales to rich Imperial Stouts aged in bourbon barrels, a brewing technique that has put Crowley on the national beer map for his pioneering work with this specialty. Most recently, Haymarket’s “The Defender” American Stout won gold medals in 2014 at both the World Beer Cup® and the Great American Beer Festival®.

International Women's Day - March 8

As the world celebrates National Women's Day, we wanted to take a moment and focus a spotlight on the often forgotten instigators involved in the Haymarket affair and labor movement.  Several of our beers honor these amazing women, who stood up for what they believed in during a time when it was particularly difficult for them to do so. Next time you're in, look for some of these ladies on the beer list -

Haymarket hits the Great American Beer Festival! 10/2-10/4

800x600 Hotdogs 1

Heading to Denver this week? Look for the Haymarket Team out and about at the Festival, as well as holding down Booth #N25.  We'll be right next to our friends from Hamburger Mary's/Andersonville Brewing Company! 

Thursday evening at 6:30pm, Pete and Chef McCoy take the stage in the Beer & Food Pavilion for "Hot Dogs & Ales to the Next Level."  They'll focus on the local, sustainable and quality ingredients we use here at the Pub and delve into how our amazing scratch made hot dogs can be easily accomplished at home.  We'll be serving mini Chicago style and New York style dogs, as we spotlight the notorious battle between cities for hot dog superiority.  Each style dog will be paired with an awesome Haymarket brew, as Pete discusses why our Speakerswagon Pilsner and Kaiser Rauchtenstein Dry-Hopped Smoked Helles are a natural fit with our housemade hot dogs and sausages.

For those not heading to Denver, check out our scratch made Frankfurter on the menu - at home, we also prepare them Coney style for a slightly messier (but delicious) take on this classic dish.

You can follow the rest of our adventures in Denver on Facebook (HaymarketBrewing) or twitter - @HaymarketPub & @HaymarketBeer.  We're celebrating Pete's 20th year at GABF, so look out for the hashtag #20yrsofGABF for posts. We'll be stopping to see some old friends while we're in town, and making new ones all week long!

Final Stretch

We're getting really close to opening the doors. The space looks awesome and we just need to pass some remaining, but crucial inspections (health being the big one).

It's looking hopeful for sometime this week, so keep your fingers crossed and send good vibes our way. Can;t wait to open the doors and have you all in.

Just a reminder that we'll be on guest taps only during the first several weeks, while we ferment out our first batch of Haymarket beer.
