Upcoming Events!

At this point, in-person events through May have been officially cancelled.  We are instead offering social distancing happy hours every weekend via Facebook Live featuring all of your favorite local musicians. Once we know that we are able to open our tasting room for entertainment again, you can be sure we'll bring back the same great entertainment options that we have in the past!

Our Story

Big Inlet Brewing is the result of years of brainstorming and hard work by close friends and relatives - Randy Henderson, Brent Henderson, Mike Starks and John Weise.  Our goal is provide the highest quality craft beer available in a farm-oriented, family-friendly environment. 

Our home on Elm Flats Road in Mayville, NY was once an actual working farm, complete with horse and cow stalls.  It has been fully converted into a small batch microbrewery with farm-related décor.  Including 1,600 sf brewing floor as well as 2,300 sf of tasting/gathering room, we have plenty of space for your enjoyment.  Add to that our planned outside bier garten and eventual pond, surrounded by a peaceful, natural setting and you may never want to leave.

Using NYS and locally grown/produced ingredients, Big Inlet Brewing produces small batch, handcrafted beers designed and brewed by our head brewer, Mike Starks, along with brewer John Weise.  Mike and John each have more than a decade of home-brewing experience and Mike has also won a number of competitions for his brewing skills. 

Our farm-oriented, fun-loving brand is evident throughout our brewery.  Ultimately, beer is about a good time.  We look forward to making new friends, sharing our beer, and providing that service and environment where you have just that – a good time.
