Flint & Genesee may not be Beer City, USA; however, the area does have a quaint selection of craft beer, wine and liquor to quench the taste of beverage lovers. Whether you’re here for a day trip or in for the weekend, the bars, pubs and breweries throughout Flint & Genesee are fun gathering spots for friends to meet, socialize, and - of course - enjoy a drink or two.
Fenton Winery & Brewery/Dream Machine
In the southern end of the county, Fenton Winery & Brewery is one of the oldest microbrewery and wineries in Genesee County. Founded in 2007, you can enjoy a rotating beer and wine list featuring fan favorites and award-winning drinks crafted on-site. New in 2022, the local brand added spirits to its menu including vodka, rum, agave spirit and gin through its venture Dream Machine and has a full-service bar crafting up cocktails using its house-made spirits.
Enjoy your beverage in the taproom or the beautiful beer garden along with one of the brewery’s locally loved pizzas, sandwiches or snacks.
Redline Brewing Company
Travel north to find yourself in Burton at Redline Brewing Company. The small two-barrel system microbrewery serves up a variety of high quality, handcrafted and unique beers. The hot-rod themed establishment offers entertainment including music, television and games and serves up complementary popcorn to snack on while you enjoy a nice cold brew.
Just outside of downtown Flint is the city’s first and only brewery Tenacity. Located in a re-fabbed fire station, the local joint offers extraordinary creative beers brewed with pride in Flint. Enjoy a beverage in the taproom or outdoor beer garden and grab a bite featuring Vehicle City Tacos in the summer and specialty Detroit-style pizza in the winter.
Flint City Hard Cider
Right around the corner in the Carriage Town neighborhood of Flint sits Flint City Hard Cider. The urban cider house features unfiltered and unpasteurized ciders and meads straight from the farm to your glass. The craft cidery also hosts an array of unique events during the week at its facility including Techno Tuesdays, Rock Paper Scissor Tournaments, live bands and open mics.
