Stiggs’ Roasted Garlic Dip

Tastemakers
By Kristi Kates | March 31, 2018

Back in the late 1800s, it was the White Timber Logging Company. In the early 1900s, it served as an office for the railroads coming in to northern Michigan.
        
Today, the vintage building — with much of its original flooring still in place — hosts Boyne City’s Stiggs Brewing Company. Here, the bar and tables are artistically bedecked with bottle caps, the beer ingredients are locally sourced, and a vast range of handcrafted brews are on tap, including favorites like Stiggs’ own Avalanche Porter and rotating picks like the Neon Snowsuit lager from Short’s Brewing Company in Bellaire, and Copper Harbor Ale from the Midland Brewing Company in Midland, Michigan.
        
As many raves as its bounty of beers has earned, it is Stiggs’ uber-popular roasted garlic dip that’s found itself a fan club. To make this appetizing delight, Stiggs blends together a mix of cheeses, roasted garlic, and caramelized onion — plus watercress and brewer’s wheat for a little extra zing — then pairs the creamy schmear with plenty of house-fried pita bread for dipping.
        
Snag all of the above at Stiggs Brewing Company, 112 S. Park St., in downtown Boyne City. stiggsbrewingcompany.com, (231) 497-6100.
