Right Brain Brewery

Right Brain Brewery is nestled in the SoFo District of downtown Traverse City, Michigan. Our focus is on creating artisan, one-of-a-kind culinary inspired brews. If you taste something in our beers, like Asparagus, Cherry Pies, or Real Pig, it's because we put it there using only whole natural ingredients; after all... extracts are for sissies. Right Brain brews can be found throughout the state of Michigan in bottles, kegs, and on draft, however we're not just beer lovers, we're art lovers too. We're advocates for anything creative, innovative, or odd so get outside of the box and Beer No Evil!® Our Current location is completely renovated and updated warehouse dating back more than 50 years. We've worked hard to reclaim and re-use as much of the old building as possible, while at the same time creating a warm and inviting atmosphere suitable for beer drinking and conversating. Our beer selection is constantly rotating and at any time we have between 15 & 25 Michigan made craft beers on tap. (We only serve our own beer, and that's the way we like it.) Our very own 'Chef Mike' is constantly adding new creations to a new food menu. One word... Waffles! Try some fresh made guacamole, salsa, or even the Brainfood Cheese Tray. The coup de gras would be one of our signature Waffle Sandwiches!
