Stormcloud Brewing Company is a northern Michigan brewery crafting Belgian inspired ales two blocks from the Lake Michigan beaches in Frankfort, MI and features flatbread pizza, small-plate appetizers, sandwiches, soups and popcorn.


Stormcloud Brewing Company opened June 2013 just two blocks from Lake Michigan in the port city of Frankfort, Michigan.

Stormcloud specializes in brewing Belgian Inspired ales, including the traditional Dubbel, Tripel and Strong Ales, along with classic beer styles such as Blondes, Pale Ales, IPAs, Porters, and Stouts. Stormcloud’s downtown pub features 16 taps pouring Stormcloud's handcrafted beer, plus cider and wine. Current Tap List »

The pub also features a full menu of flatbread pizzas, small plate appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, and specialty popcorn. Our kitchen creates most menu items from scratch, with ingredients sourced from Michigan farms and our own StormGarden. Current Food Menu »

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.

In 2018 Stormcloud expanded its brewing operations with the opening of a production brewery in Frankfort. A public tasting room at the brewery opened May 2018. Public brewery tours began June 2018.

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.
