About Brown Iron

Brown Iron Brewhouse is a community house where great American beer is celebrated with outstanding smokehouse cuisine

Named “Best Beer Bar 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 in Michigan” by CraftBeer.com, Brown Iron is a beer-centric smokehouse. Put simply, we love great beer and we love great food! Styled after a modern twist on the large and open German beer halls, Brown Iron Brewhouse welcomes you to come sit among friends on our inviting community seating inside the beer hall or enjoy the fire pits or great Michigan weather in our large beer garden with tables straight from Germany!

Brown Iron Beer

We specialize in draft beer from American craft breweries. You can find a large selection of beers from Michigan and find drafts which you may not find anywhere else. Our taps rotate daily with a mixture of stouts, IPAs, porters, sours, ciders and meads.

Brown Iron Brewhouse is not only a tap house but also brews in-house as well with a variety of beers on tap. Each small batch uses the finest ingredients to create the best craft beer possible.

Smokehouse Cuisine 

We said we love great food and we mean eat! We specialize in fresh food made daily. Enjoy our pulled pork, brisket, “beer-can” chicken or bacon smoked fresh in our smoker each day. Enjoy a fabulous salad, ground brisket burger or house-made pretzels. We specialize in Gluten free so you can find something for a special diet. Our dressings and BBQ sauces are made from scratch here at Brown Iron too!


Each week we host special tap showcase, beer education or beer and food pairings. Our staff is trained to help guide you through the extensive beer menu and can help pair food with your choice as well. We said we love great beer! Come give us a try!
