Five Shores’ E Machine

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | Aug. 21, 2021

Some of the world’s best ideas are born over a pint — or two or three. In the case of Five Shores Brewing co-founders Oliver Roberts and Matt Demorest, that idea just happened to be, well … beer. Since opening their historic quonset building doors last January, Five Shores has quickly carved a reputation for their brewing expertise and branding wizardry. Set just 30 miles southwest of Traverse City, this Beulah taproom features an impressive range of rotating brews, all carefully crafted using local ingredients, including Williamsburg’s own MI Local Hops. For a little late-summer thirst-quenching, Five Shores’s “E Machine” more than fits the bill. A classic “juicy” IPA featuring fruity notes of lemon and nectarine, this crisp, golden pour is cold-kettle hopped for a bitter, herb-y kick with a clean finish. But don’t be fooled by the grab-and-go growlers; Five Shore products can’t be found at any party store. You’ll just have to stop into the pub for a pint. $5 for a 10-ounce snifter or $7 for a 16-ounce can. Find Five Shores Brewing at 163 S. Benzie Blvd. in Beulah. (231) 383-4400,
