Overview

Back in 1933, Michigan became the first state to ratify the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, repealing Prohibition. We don't know about you, but we're really proud of that fact. After the Amendment was adopted, dozens of breweries sprung up across the state, including the original Midland Brewing Company, which opened in 1935 inside an old creamery downtown. Midland Brewing developed some signature beers like Red Keg Ale, named after the first lumber camp and saloon in Midland County. Unfortunately during the Great Depression times were tough and competition was fierce. Even with its excellent beer, the brewery lasted only a few years. Midland Brewing Company was reborn in 2010, and our small posse of entrepreneurs are connecting our passion for brewing quality Michigan craft beer to Midland's early history - especially its first 100 years, defined by the lumber, railroad and beer industries. We reopened Midland Brewing company not far from Averill, Michigan, where the Red Keg Lumber Camp sat by the Tittabawassee River. Since then, we've worked to carry on the legacy of the original Midland Brewing Company while also innovating our own signature brews and developing new beerventures all of the time.

Don't order the MBC Burger. It was undercooked and very basic. The bread was the best part. Ordered an Arnold Palmer, half lemonade and half iced tea, and it was mostly lemonade. I doubt I'll be back. Ice cream next door is very good.

Improved parking lot and building. Inside is very nice. The beer is still average to low end. Not much flavor in anything that is not IPA or stout. The beers also all have the same flavor so not much variation on the lack of flavor....More

The "new" Midland Brewing Company is a big improvement. Their beer is still very good, but the addition of a kitchen makes it a whole new place! The menu is limited, but very tasty.More

Have been waiting for this place to reopen and have visited half a dozen times as we live near. Beer is same as it was before, largely uninspired and bland with an occasional seasonal that is good. A cardinal sin of bartending is denigrating your...More
