Drei Kaiser website label-01.jpg

Drei Kaiser was the Flagship beer of the Upper Peninsula Brewing Company in the late 1800s/early 1900s. The UPBC was producing 20,000-25,000 bbls of Drei Kaiser annually. Needless to say this beer was popular in the region.

After the onset of WWI the name was changed to Castle Brew and brewed in mass until Prohibition closed the brewery.

Our head production brewery and history buff, Andrew, has always wanted to resurrect this beer. It is also fitting since the last remaining structure from the UPBC still stands a quarter mile down the road from our production brewery.

Not surprisingly we were unable to find an actual recipe for the beer. Andrew however was committed to using 100% Michigan ingredients for this beer. Our Drei Kaiser is made from Pilsner and Munich malt from Empire Malting and hopped with Triple Perle from Michigan Hop Alliance.

This is our homage to the Upper Peninsula Brewing Company’s Drei Kaiser.
