Summertime in Northern Michigan just got a little sweeter with the opening of Stormcloud Brewing in downtown Frankfort!
While listening to some great music at the Elberta Solstice celebration, heard that the new brewery across the bay in Frankfort had opened, so headed over with friends to check it out. Downtown Frankfort is a pretty alive and happening place already, so expectations were high. Stormcloud did not disappoint!
Only opened the previous day, they were pouring from six of 22 taps. We tried The Handsome Bee (a Belgian blonde), While Away IPA and the Summertime Ale. I personally am an IPA fan, and the While Away is now in running for my favorite (next to another Northern Michigan craft brewer's). This IPA is smooth and crisp with delicious hops florals.
Glass growlers were not yet available, but they did have a pretty sweet stainless steel growler with etched logo for $35. Now wait, before you freak out at the price of a fancy thermos, take into consideration that this growler keeps your tasty beverage cold (or hot if that's what you put in there) only losing 1 degree Fahrenheit in 24 hours AND is perfectly legal to take to the beach!
There is also a food menu, but since my friends and I had eaten across the bay at the Solstice celebration, we did not order anything to eat. I will be sure to do so on my next visit and will post an edit to this review when that happens.
My personal thanks to the visionaries that made Stormcloud Brewing Company a reality for the rest of us, and for bringing craft beer to Frankfort. I will be back to have my growler filled many times!

Excellent pizza, I recommend the Rider in the Storm with their Rainmaker IPA. I also enjoyed the Summertime Ale. On my next visit I hope to try the echo bend pizza. Thank you to Rick and Brian.
