Fetch Brewing Company is now open in downtown Whitehall being the third brewery to open in Muskegon County in less than a year’s time. Fetch was preceded by Unruly and Pigeon Hill Brewing Companies both located in downtown Muskegon whereas Fetch is the first brewery to open in the White Lake area. Fetch is located in the former State Bank Building on Colby St. and has been renovated to incorporate elements of the historic location such as the bank vault and elevator shaft into the design of the brewery.
For the opening week, Fetch Brewing offered up 8 taps including the very limited batch of the El Dorado Limon Saison and a non-alcoholic “City Water” Cream Soda.
The additional 6 taps were as follows:
  • HARVEST Pale Ale
  • SWAGGER IPA
  • PITCH FORK WHEAT
  • TREE STUMP Coffee Stout
  • SINGLE BACK BLACK
  • MEANDER Session IPA

The beer menu also promises 3 additional recipes on deck including 2 brown ales and the Double Back Black and additional beer recipes are already in the works. In conjunction with their opening weekend, Fetch also debuted their beer at the Oktoberfest Celebration at the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex.

Fetch does not currently offer their own food but instead encourages patrons to bring their own with plenty of food options for takeout and delivery in close proximity. Bone Ends Tex Mex BBQ Truck has been conveniently located outside the brewery for opening week and the Taqueria Diaz taco truck on Colby St. has also proved popular with it’s authentic Mexican cuisine.

Fetch is currently open 7 days a week with hours starting at noon until 10 PM Monday through Wednesday, 11 AM until Midnight Thursday through Saturday, and Noon until 8 PM on Sundays. As with any new brewery, opening days and hours are subject to beer availability so make sure to double-check the Fetch Brewing Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/fetchbrewing) for the latest information and also news of latest offerings such as mug club openings which features hand-crafted ceramic mugs.
