Ron Jeffries, former brewer at Grizzly Peak, has dabbled with virtually every style of beer, which is how he has gained such a vast understanding of beer, which has also helped him establish his own uniquely artistic identity in the beer world. Upon visiting the brewery, youíre greeted by various-sized oaken barrels, some of which are simply toasted, and others once contained bourbon. He also has an open fermenter. I should mention that Ron is a very hospitable person and especially appreciative of those who support his craft. JP will continue to impress with each passing day IMO, particularly since Ron has noted that lactobacillus and brettanomyces have assumed residence in various barrels at the brewery. Land of sour beer, here we come!! No tasting room...yet, but Ronís aiming at obtaining an on-premise tasting license. Bring lots of cash (checks will work, too, and maybe CCís in the future) and a large car to stock the cases of 750ís youíll be bringing back. Also be on the lookout for the cafe in the coming months.

What a great little brewery. Ron the owner/brewer is a great guy. He was very accomodating and seemed genuinely interested in our conversation. He seems very passionate about what he is doing and it is really manifested in his beer. While the only beer you are going to get is what he currently has in bottles, it is a very worthwhile stop in a SE Michigan tour. No Credit Cards so bring your checkbook or a wad of cash.

Not far from Ann Arbor and tucking into downtown Dexter. Donít get directions from Map Quest, they are wrong, take Baker Rd to Forest Street. Had a nice time talking beer with Ron and checking out the facility. Make sure you bring your cash or check as they donít take credit cards yet. Cash and carry only. May open a small sit down later this year. New place and shows alot of promise.

LIttle brewery tucked away in a small town. Ron the owner/brewer/utility player was there. Had a great conversation about the brewery and beer in general. If in the Michigan area of I-94 this is a must do stop.
