Forgottonia Brewing opens its doors in Macomb

There’s a new brewery opening up in Macomb on Wednesday.

Forgottonia Brewing will hold its grand opening at the new location on Lafayette Street at 4 p.m. After winning a retail business competition put on by the city of Macomb almost a year ago, co-owner Sean West said he’s excited to see what the brewery brings to the community.

Right now, the brewery is offering six beers brewed in house, along with sodas, cold brewed coffee, a cider and other regional beers.

“Taps are working, beer is fermenting, we have the main entrance and the garage concrete poured,” West said. “We are still waiting on the tap room to be finished that will be done before Heritage Days, but we are very excited to welcome in the community.”

West said they are working to get the beer patio open for the fall, so they can have events and get the fire pit going.
