In summer, relax on the pub's outdoor patio and lawn space with plenty of seating options, live music, and lawn games. In winter, grab a brew and a seat on the patio bleachers to watch a match on our outdoor curling sheet. Get on the ice with our Learn to Curl Lessons.

Our coastal hot spot was voted Best New Brewery in Michigan by MLive in 2016 and Best Brew Pub in 2017 by the readers of Traverse Magazine.

With Lake Michigan's Gold Coast so close, the beach vibe is strong at Stormcloud. We encourage you to embrace an easygoing attitude while enjoying our pub, tasting room, and brewery. We do not accept reservations.
