From historic railroad depot to brewery, 112 S Park Street has once again made a name for itself. The building was originally part of the White Lumber Company located on the east side of Lake Street across from the White’s Number One Mill. On June 28th, 1918 the mill burned down and the office building was moved to its current location. The building served as General Offices for Boyne City, Gaylord and Alpena Railroads until 1935. Which then continued to be Boyne City Railroad until 1976 ending its railroad depot streak in 1978 as Boyne Valley. To this day, this is one of the last buildings associated with the railroad. Come September 2016, Mike Castiglione will open the doors to bring the life back into this historical building.
What started as a dream quickly has turned into a reality for owner Mike Castiglione. Mike graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Biomedical Laboratory Diagnostics and went on to a career at Henry Ford Hospital specializing in microbiology. He has been brewing beer for over ten years and has always had a borderline unhealthy obsession with craft beer. The first batch of beer he brewed was in his small college apartment on a cheap electric stove and fermented in buckets in a closet. It was one of the worst beers he has ever made. Since then, he has won multiple home brewing awards, brewed beer with multiple Michigan craft breweries and his beer has been on tap at a few of these locations. He is a certified BJCP beer judge and has traveled the world seeking out local libations to quench his thirst for knowledge of the craft beer world. He has brewed a variety of beer, but a few of his favorites are big barrel aged stouts, sahti, lagers, and IPAs.
Mike wants to thank all of the excellent Michigan craft breweries for allowing him the honor to brew at their facilities including; B.A.D. Brewing Company in Mason, Crankers Brewery in Big Rapids, Draught Horse in New Hudson, Liberty Street in Plymouth, Tilted Axis in Lapeer, and Lake Charlevoix Brewing Company in Charlevoix. Mike is excited to brew Stiggs beer for all craft beer enthusiasts and is proud to be part of the Boyne City community.
