Big thanks to Doug Mehl for having me out this past Saturday. I was able to sample a “Rack” of 6 beers he’s brewed. Along with a tour around Big Buck Brewery. Each beer I had was spot on! Another stop is happening soon to try the rest. Plus he mentioned some empty barrels in the basement. Looking forward to see what comes out of those.

As of Monday 10/1/18 the brewery is open for business and waiting for you to visit. If you haven’t been to Big Buck Brewery before it truly has that Northern Michigan vibe.

It’s such an easy stop whether you’re traveling up or down 75. Short drive from the TC area or anywhere up north. Also for you snowmobilers, Trail 7 runs right along side of the brewery. Great place to warm up!

Gaylord to Grayling would also be a fun brew tour. Call it the “G to G Trail”. I-75 is actually loaded with breweries to stop at. From Mackinaw City on down to past Detroit.

Lastly, there are so many year round outdoor activities to do in and around the Gaylord area!
