Big Buck Brewery’s Michigan Sunrise

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | Nov. 19, 2022

As its name suggests, there’s nothing small about Big Buck Brewery. Established in 2018 (though the space had a past life in the mid-90s), this iconic Gaylord alehouse impresses, from its 300-seat interior to the can’t-miss-it beer bottle on the lawn. The pub has pulled out all the stops in its array of artisan suds, headlined by the signature Michigan Sunrise. Brewed with four types of local hops—including aromatic Chinook and Cascade—Big Buck’s flagship beer packs just enough earthiness to sate IPA junkies, while its light body and citrus-scented palette make it a go-to for beer drinkers across the board. Pair one with a plate of house jambalaya or get buck-wild with a sampler rack—if that’s not going big, we don’t know what is. Stop in at Big Buck Brewery (550 S. Wisconsin Ave. in Gaylord) for a six-buck pint or locate your nearest four-pack via the “Beer Finder” tab at (989) 448-7072.
