About Us

Brewery & Boutique in Traverse City’s Old Town district

Ferment is an inviting, casual, neighborhood brewery that is truly all about the craft. Our unexpected styles and brewing techniques paired with local artisan handcrafted merchandise creates The Ferment Experience which cannot be found anywhere else. Come experience the uniqueness!

Handmade Merchandise

In addition to offering great craft beer, we also have a wide selection of handmade merchandise. We specialize in jewelry encased with real Northern Michigan hops. Visit the taproom or our online Etsy shop to see what makes our merchandise unique. Please feel free to contact us about custom orders.

We believe in emphasizing our Michigan roots

We aim to make the most of what local growers have to offer, brewing with Northern Michigan ingredients as much as possible. We also have a small menu of unique bar snacks and outside food is welcome. We have five flagship beers on draft along with rotating specialties and bottled conditioned beers. Stop in, have a pint and you will notice the local difference.

Come in and enjoy yourself

Complimenting the libations and beer gear is a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We have dart boards, coloring books, playing cards, board games, and a TV for all your favorite sports.
