I’m often asked what my favorite Michigan brewery is. That’s not an easy answer, and I usually say I could list 10 different breweries under 10 different categories. The most beautiful brewery space in Michigan is a pretty easy one for me- Hop Lot Brewing Company in Suttons Bay.

Brothers Steve and Drew Lutke have carved out a purely Michigan space just north of Traverse City. The brewery and taproom are housed in a gorgeous wood building, with ample light and comfortable seating.

The feature that makes Hop Lot my favorite brewery space in Michigan is the spacious outdoor beer garden. It features firepits, plentiful outdoor games, a stage and a small bar outside for the peak summer months.

I hate to admit I’ve only been to Hop Lot once, and we had perfect weather. The tap list consists of 10 beers and everything we tried was solid.

I certainly need to get back to Hop Lot in the future. I’d love to go on a summer night when they have a bad playing.
