Rustic farmhouse brewing

At VanMax Brewing Company we brew small artisan batches of rustic beers with a slight European influence. Specializing in farmhouse ales using our house yeast and a variety of Brett and Bacteria strains. We set out to create unique and complex beers that are an expression of the primitive techniques displayed by small European farm breweries from long ago. Initially will be a production brewery only, packaging and self distributing to Southwest Michigan. This is only for a short while until we find the right place to call home for a tasting room and barrel house, which will have room for our coolship our spontaneous fermentation program and other endless experiments that we are very excited about! We hope you are too! Cheers!

Our Mission

Our mission is to craft  rustic and complex ales that are unique, funky, and creative.
