Grand Traverse Area
Breweries & Craft Beer Tastings

The Traverse City area has seen a recent burst in the development of microbreweries, brew pubs and craft brew taprooms. Being located on the 45th parallel, the climate of the Traverse City area is ideal for growing hops, a key ingredient in beer. Hops are now being grown on the Old Mission and Leelanau peninsulas right along with the vineyards which produce the wide variety of wines for which the area is already known.

In Traverse City, there is the TC Cycle Pub, a 14-passenger bike bar used to tour the town, stopping at various watering holes along the two-hour tours.
The Traverse City Ale Trail offers a trail passport to be stamped when visiting participating breweries; completed passports can be redeemed at The Filling Station Microbrewery for a prize.
