The Workshop Brewing Company exists to preserve Northern Michigan’s spectacular natural environment, to reinforce glyphTraverse City’s warm and vital community, and to honor traditional craft. We do not consider our business to be a success unless we are demonstrably and sustainably doing all three. We express this commitment by using the Trifidelity symbol, which stands for our motto: Nature. Community. Craft.


The address at the top right corner of this page is a link. If you click it, you will find a map that should help you find us. But if you prefer old-fashioned directions, here are some:

The Workshop Brewing Company is located at 221 Garland Street- in the building that used to house Right Brain Brewery and right next door to the Inside Out Gallery. We are one block inland from Traverse City’s waterfront Open Space (between Front Street and Lake Michigan), and we are one block west of Union Street (between Union Street and Hall Street).


We have plentiful parking! And in the evening, it’s free! There’s one lot adjacent to our building to the south (this lot is metered during the day and free after 6pm), and another one 25 yards to the east (this one is permit-only during the day but free after 4pm).

    Able to change musical styles as quickly as the weather changes in their home state of Michigan, Kung Fu Rodeo presents a show based in high energy rock and roll and peppered with Americana, funk, soul, reggae, jazz, and more. Having already staked a reputation as a “must see” band at a number of festivals in their home region of Northern Michigan, the fall 2012 release of their debut CD, “Custom Superthrust,” is the first step in a push to play bigger stages and larger markets.
