Cold Brews

At Hopside we try to keep our beer lineup new and fresh. We focus more on traditional as well as some of the rarer beer styles from around the world. We keep 24 of our in-house beers on tap at all times, ranging from light, low calorie beers and seltzers, to heavy stouts, session and Double IPA's, and everything inbetween. Come try our version of one of the traditional styles or maybe you'll find a favorite style that you never knew existed. All of our beers are designed, brewed, fermented, and packaged 100% on-site in Downtown Alpena, Michigan.


All of our spirits are also made 100% in-house in true craft fashion on our 50 gallon copper pot still. Come sample them by themselves or try one of our mixed drinks. We have new mixers created in-house as well as some unique twists on old favorites.
