Sebewaing Beer Pint Glass

$15.00

Craft beer, micro-brews, or small batch – whatever you call it Michiganders will drink it! But brewing great beer is nothing new around here. The Great Lakes State has been home to some of the greatest beer for almost 200 years.

This heavy-duty pint glass pays homage to Sebewaing Brewing Company's Sebewaing Beer.

Sebewaing’s unique name is supposedly from a native-American language meaning “wandering river”. The area was settled in the early 1850s and sometime in the 1870s the first brewery was founded by an E. O. Braendle. His brewery was a hit, in part because the area’s isolation meant that there wasn’t much competition.

In 1924, the Sebewaing Products Company was formed. They made malt extract, which was legal during prohibition because it could be used for baking, but in reality was usually used for home brewing.

After Prohibition ended in 1933, another group of investors bought the company and renamed the business the Sebewaing Brewing Company. They produced Sebewaing Beer, an Old Stock Ale, and Sport Beer, as well as Golden Pheasant beer. Pheasants became a popular feature on Sebewaing labels and ads as the area was popular among hunters and fishermen.

The 1960’s brought a series of mergers, changes, and lawsuits; a trifecta of challenges that ultimately spelled the end of the storied brewery in 1966.
