Monkey Fist Brewing Co., Traverse City, Michigan
Whoever said “age is everything” clearly has never been to Monkey Fist Brewing Co. They may be relatively new to the brewery scene, but Monkey Fist has it all figured out! Ever since June 2017, they’ve dominated with beers that they claim “we take more seriously than ourselves.” Their guests are their number one priority, and it shows — come try the award-winning Monkey Fist IPA!
Conveniently located in downtown Traverse City, MI, Monkey Fist Brewing Co. has easy access for locals as well as tourists in the area. Walk down State Street Marketplace and check out local artisan businesses. Monkey Fist currently occupies what used to be an old horse stable for the Traverse City Police Department in the early 1900s, but don’t worry, it’s been renovated to remove any suspicious scents! It’s definitely something to check out as its unique history has been preserved.
In case you’re not a beer person, don’t fret – they have cider options and Monkey Punch (a rum punch w/simple syrup infused with sumac).
Stop in on Fridays for live music from 9pm – 12am, Saturdays for Sporcle Live Trivia from 8pm-10pm, and stay tuned for more information on their Cornhole League.
Monkey Fist Brewing has also been host to events like Recess and a Bras for a Cause pre-party, so be sure to ask them what other events you can support while you’re visiting!
