Brian and Megan Josefowicz opened The Mitten Bar: A Michigan Ideology in June 2011.  

Our goal was to create a community third space that only sold Michigan crafted Beer, Wine, and Spirits. 

We've proudly created a destination and culture that celebrates our community and the great state of Michigan

We have since went beyond just that... You'll also find live music and special events each week. We’d love to help you learn, as well as learn from you, about the incredible beers and wines that Michigan has to offer. And Michigan has A LOT to offer!
