Grand Ledge brewery opens after 3-year wait

There are many things in life that can make you happy, but sometimes they can be hard to find, or make time for. For brothers Ben and Ed Huston, however, the recipe to a happiness is simple: good beer and good people. Brick Haven Brewing Company opened up on Dec. 8, 2017, after a three-year project repurposing the old building. “It was once a church,” said co-owner/founder Ben Huston, “It was then the Grand Ledge city hall up until 2014 and in 2015 I bought the building for $50,000.”

Now in its second month of being an open, Brick Haven Brewing Company is showing more promise than expected, even by the Huston brothers.

Grand Ledge bakery wins “Best Bakery in Lansing Area”

It’s a cold, snowy day in a small, tight-knit town. Downtown Grand Ledge is dead, apart from one business that still has its doors open an hour after their marked closing time. It may be only 1 p.m, but business-owner Beth Augustine has been there since 2:30 in the morning, baking fresh pastries and bagels, the same way she does every single day. Their Flour Child bakery opened its doors on the streets of downtown Grand Ledge on Oct. 4, 2016.
