Ghost Isle Brewery
The Sima Family has owned the 3.5-acre site where Ghost Isle now sits since the 1950’s when Jim’s grandfather purchased hundreds of acres in New Buffalo, MI. The Brewery overlooks 156 acres of wetlands that was donated by the Sima Family to Chikaming Open Lands, a non-profit organization that now maintains this Michigan state-designated “critical wetlands.”
The beautiful, sweeping wetlands view to be enjoyed by patrons of Ghost Isle carries the name “Louis J Sima Great Lakes Marsh,” after Jim’s beloved Grandfather, Louis J Sima. “Ghost Island” itself sits to the left and west of the brewery, and takes its name from generations of residents who played there as children and teens, and who claim there is supernatural activity on the island.
Ghost Isle’s new 10-barrel system hails from American Beer Equipment, Lincoln, Nebraska. The steam-powered brewhouse is highly efficient and its automated features allows for easy brewing. Our brewery consists of 4 fermenters and 8 serving tanks, giving us the ability to offer a wide selection of styles. As we continue on our journey we plan to dive into the depths of experimentation and create unique beers and flavors to keep it new and exciting.
