Oliver Roberts, Co-Founder, Brewmaster and General Manager of Five Shores Brewing in Beulah shares his passion for brewing.


Oliver and his business Co-Founder, Matt Demorest, have recently opened Five Shores Brewing Company in downtown Beulah to rave reviews by those of us fortunate enough to have been early customers.

Oliver began brewing beer at home at 19 and has never stopped.  He has been brewing beer for 19 years, spending the past 10 as Brewmaster for a startup brewery, which came to be known as Wolverine State Brewing Co., Michigan’s first all-lager craft brewery. Oliver designed and spearheaded the opening and operation of WSBC, Ann Arbor’s only production brewery, which, in 2017, was ranked the 27th largest brewery in Michigan by volume.

Oliver now calls Northern Michigan home. He’s passionate about conserving the land and water and paying homage to this beautiful area — and its residents — in each and every Five Shores pint. We encourage everyone to stop in and enjoy his handicraft.
