I have to say, I was pretty excited as we walked up to Thumb Brewery, because we had not been to a brewery that used to be a home. Nestled just off Main St, in a well kept home from the 1800’s, Thumb Brewery is one of the most cozy breweries we’ve been to.
We made our way through Caseville during the early afternoon, so Thumb Brewery was just opening for the day. They have a large yard, with lots of outdoor seating, but we wanted to check out the inside. We sat in the main seating area, which was the main living area for the, used to be home.
There was a bar to sit at, just past the fireplace.
We started off with a couple samples. Right away, the Lady Lavender, a pale ale, jumped out to me. This was my favorite, and is definitely one of my top 3 beers for the time being. The Sebewaing Belgian Blonde pretty good.
Matt liked the Oatmeal Stout, but the Pilsner was good at first, and did not quite grow on our taste buds. Quinn’s Irish Red Ale pays homage to the former family of the home, which is now Thumb Brewery. Matt enjoyed the taster. The Amber Lager, made with Munich Malt, had a sweet finish and great copper color.
After the tasters, I enjoyed a full glass of the Lady Lavender. And with my family history of spending summers in Caseville, I had to get myself one of their beer glasses.
Even though we had just ate lunch, Jojo insisted on trying their pretzel with cheese, but I failed to get a picture, lol.
I could imagine hanging out on the large porch on a late summer night.
Or sitting around a fire pit, drinking a brew, on a cool evening.
I would love to head back for more Lady Lavender!! Where are some of your favorite places to drink brews? Come chat with us on Instagram!!
Keep in mind, they close for a couple months during the winter, so be sure to check their website before visiting.
