About Us


We’re a family of farmers, brewers and food lovers who believes local can be more delicious. The Schaendorf family has been farming in West Michigan for generations and Schaendorf Brewing Company is bringing years of hard work full-circle for consumers.


We source as many ingredients as possible from Michigan farmers and our own family farm to keep the menu simple, fresh & local. Built in the late 1800’s, our site has served many uses over the last century for the city of Allegan, including a car dealership, meat market and home to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. It’s possible this location was even the site of Allegan’s very first brewery. We hope you come back often as we restore this unique historical piece of downtown Allegan to a place for the community to gather, sharing in good food and friendship.

We’re in the process of building an on-site production facility. The brewery should be completed by the summer of 2019. Until then we will be serving craft beer made by our brewer at Tapistry Brewing as well as other local favorites.
