Farm to Brewery to Farm

Brewery Terra Firma is a production brewery, tap room, and MAEAP certified farm located on 10 acres in Traverse City, Michigan. We produce delicious, culinary-inspired beers using sustainable methods, including an innovative water capture system in our brewhouse that has allowed us to reclaim over 230,000 gallons of water from the manufacturing process for reuse as irrigation and fertilization on our farm crops.

We even harvest our waste BTUs from our fermenters and refrigeration systems to heat the building during the cooler months.

Stop by our taproom to sample our beers, or find us throughout Michigan at your favorite taverns and restaurants. We have locally-made snacks and sodas available for purchase, or you are welcome to bring along a home cooked meal, carry out, or order in!

Indigenous Wet Hop Rye IPA – 6.0% - Standard

Juicy fruit, citrus, and small piney notes leap from the glass. Multiple varieties of “wet” whole cone hops were handpicked from our hop yard and walked right into our brewhouse for use in this special Harvest Ale. Multitudes of multifaceted fresh hops twirl and eddy and finish with a firm and balanced foundation of bitterness while the malt and rye provide the spicy base.

Theodore Belgian Tripel - 9.0%

A very special brew for us here at Brewery Terra Firma! Spring of 2019 we decided to try and plant a barley variety suitable for malting and grow it here at BTF in our East Field. Spring turned to summer, we watched the barley grow right from the brewery and beer garden, patiently waiting for the day to harvest. With help from Mug Club Members we harvest the East Field and sent to GT Culinary Oils on Cass where it was cleaned and dried. After the barley goes dormant, it's time for malting. Our friends over at Great Lakes Malting Co. over on Cass helped us out with this. After a couple weeks a drew date is set and history was made!

This gorgeous 9% blonde beer is brewed with coriander and goes great with fruity desserts for the holiday season. It is named after Father Theodore whom was one in a long line of Brewmasters at the now world renown Chimay Brewery in Belgium.

Torro Tang Cider 5.0%

Torch Lake Lager – 5.0% - Standard

This great summer quencher is the first lager to make an appearance here at B.T.F.  It’s unfiltered, unpasteurized and hoppy with a brisk and firm bitter foundation.

Scottish Moor Heather Ale - 6.5%

Brewed with honey from our hives and whole heather flowers.

A fruity, cozy and easy drinking beer with substantial depth and complexity. Broad appeal comes from a full, silky body and nice hop balance, the heather providing subtle floral notes without being perfumy. Finishes clean with light medicinal heather and fruit with a hint of honey. As always, no flavorings or extracts were used in brewing this beer, the unique flavor and color coming from whole Scottish heather flowers and honey from our own bee hives.
