It’s clearly no secret that Michigan’s award-winning craft brew scene is thriving and The Round Barn brews from the Southwest region of the state are no exception. After releasing its first packaged microbrews four years ago, the brewery’s popularity took off and continues to attract more and more beer lovers each year.
To keep up with demand, owners Matthew and Chris Moersch, are expanding their brewery’s production facilities in to the heart of downtown Baroda, Michigan, just around the corner from the flagship Round Barn Winery, Brewery, and Distillery. The Moersch brothers say they are happy to be keeping the large-scale expansion local - they recently purchased a 10,000 square foot property on Main Street in downtown Baroda that previously housed a tool and die shop.
Always staying committed to Michigan’s strong agritourism movement, Matthew explains, “We’ve reached capacity in our current facility so we’re looking forward to moving just across town to step up production and eventually open a casual brew pub.”
Further plans for Round Barn’s new production facility will include a small brewpub and restaurant by summer 2013.

About The Round Barn:
What sets The Round Barn apart from neighboring wineries in Southwest Michigan is its diverse product line, functioning not only as a winery, but also a distillery and brewery. Celebrating their 20 year anniversary of business this year, Rick and Sherrie Moersch, along with sons Chris and Matthew, have built a flourishing family operation rooted in a spirited, educational, and unintimidating atmosphere. They proudly use local produce from area orchards, vineyards, and farms in the production of its quality, hand-crafted varietals, brandies, spirits, and beers.
