Biere de Mac Brew Works

OUR HISTORY

But behind every awesome group of people (which we are) and behind every stellar pint of beer (which we have) is a good story (3 for3!) The Ranville family initially settled on Mackinac Island several hundred years ago, along with French explorers, traders, voyagers, and a bunch of other cool, adventuresome lads and ladies.

We then moved to the mainland, and operated a fishing business in the area where the state docks are now located along the Mackinaw City waterfront. Good times were had, outlandish shenanigans took place, and our happy family grew happier. There’s a lot more to tell, but they are stories better shared over a pint of good brew. We choose to spell Biere the French way as a nod to our ancestors, who settled in the most beautiful place on the planet, and facilitated the opportunities that got us to where we are, which is a pretty amazing place to be!

Don’t be fooled by that fancy spelling, though; we won’t correct you on the pronunciation because we aren’t even sure if we say it right. Good beer and good food. That’s all we care about. Stop in some time, grab a pint (or, you know, realistically more than one) and enjoy! Cheers!

Legs Inn

Located in historic Cross Village, Michigan, Legs Inn is a “monument to nature.” Built on a high bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, it is unique and mysterious as seen in its architecture and decor. The fantasy-like atmosphere of this medieval looking stone, timber and driftwood landmark was created by one man, Polish immigrant, Stanley Smolak. He fell in love with Northern Michigan and its people, many of them Ottawa and Chippewa Indians and decided to settle in Cross Village in 1921.

A blend of Old World European and Indian cultures creates a memorable atmosphere. The entry foyer, tavern, game and dining rooms are all filled with an intriguing collection of nature and hand carved furniture — whimsical creations made of tree stumps, twisted limbs and roots, driftwood sculptures and massive fieldstone fireplaces.

Authentic Polish cuisine is our specialty, but delicious American dishes, including local fresh Whitefish, are also served. The Smolak family and staff are dedicated to making your visit to Legs Inn an unforgettable experience, which will have you returning often with family and friends throughout the years.

Throughout the decades Legs Inn has become a famous family destination and restaurant. It has been acknowledged and praised by major magazines, TV broadcasters, newspapers, travel-related web sites, tour guides and guests from across the country and around the world. We look forward to your visit.

Mackinaw Pastie & Cookie Co.

The Mackinaw Pastie Shop was founded in 1964 by William E. Heikkila of St. Ignace at the present site, 516 S. Huron in Mackinaw City. He sold the business to Gordon and Margaret Allen of St. Ignace later that same year. Gordon and Margaret operated the pastie Shop for 10 years making handmade pasties and developing a loyal following. In 1974 they sold the business to retired Lansing assistant fire chief, Bill Grew and his wife Wanda. Wanda Grew’s grandmother was from Cornwall, England (which is where pasties originated), so Bill & Wanda started using her grandmother’s recipe.

The reputation of the Mackinaw Pastie Shop grew with Bill & Wanda working 15 to 18 hours a day in the summer season until they decided it was time to retire for a second time.

Dick & Jean Hunt of Cheboygan bought the business on July 1, 1983. Bill & Wanda continued working with Dick for the next five years teaching him the fine art of pastie making. Over the years other flavors of pasties were added. Pastie varieties now include the traditional beef pastie, the chicken pastie, and the vegetable & cheese pastie.

A line of gourmet cookies was also added, baked fresh every day. We use only the finest ingredients available including fine quality chocolates used for making hand dipped chocolates.

In the spring of 2000, Dick and Jean decided to make another major change and acquired a second pastie shop. This store is on the west side of Mackinaw City. It is located at the south terminus of the Mackinac Bridge at I-75 and just two blocks from Fort Michilimackinac. This new location will be open year round and will give our customers easy access to our pasties when traveling on I-75.

We continue making pasties today with the same recipe and the best ingredients available so our customers can count on getting the same great pasties year after year.
