From the Petoskey News-Review: As he prepares to open Stiggs Brewing Co., Mike Castiglione sees a couple of reasons why its downtown Boyne City setting should be favorable for business. Castiglione expects a soft opening for the brewery at 112 S. Park St. during the first week of January and plans a grand opening on Jan. 27. “Boyne City is a vibrant small town,” Castiglione said. “It’s really growing.” And, with Stiggs joining other beer-focused establishments downtown — including two taprooms that have opened during the past year — “I think if you’re a beer connoisseur, you’ll come to Boyne City to try them all.” The bar at Stiggs will feature more than 30 taps. About seven of the brewery’s own beer selections will be available at launch. Full story.
