our Story

The Kelleys Island Brewery has become a favorite venue for weddings, reunions and landmark birthday celebrations while maintaining a full service restaurant and brewery.

Dairy Isle...
The Island Café...
It began in 1960, by Patti’s father and grandmother as the Dairy Isle
The Island Café was born in 1988. It served breakfast and lunch to day travelers, campers and residents.
In 1999, craft beer lovers started coming and the demand for more than food had become apparent, so Patti started the Kelleys Island Brewery
In 2001 Patti’s boy friend – now husband – Doug became the brew master and with the help from his brother Ed started producing some of Lake Erie’s finest brews.
The arrival of Dockhand Porter

  • A great selection of microbrews, specialty drinks, wine, cocktails.
