Rivers Edge PatioRiver's Edge Brewing Co. is located on the banks of the Huron River in the beautiful Village of Milford, Michigan. REBC was founded by three local families: Tom & Mary Kaye Ouvry, Michael & Gill Last, and Ryan & Carrie Wiltse. These long-time friends all live on the same dirt road, and it was one of many nights hanging out, enjoying some homebrew, that launched the idea of River's Edge.

We set out to create a comfortable space to enjoy great beer and conversation, a place where friends and the community can gather to share a fresh pint and get to know each other a little better. What you won't see are walls covered with TVs. What you will see is a gathering place with an appreciation for the history of both our community and the art of brewing. We believe every town deserves its own brewery, and we're proud to be Milford's!

ryanRyan hails from the town of Sebewaing, in Michigan's Thumb. While growing up, he remembers always passing by the old site of the Sebewaing Brewing Co. (closed in 1966, demolished in 1984).

Ryan and his wife Carrie moved to Colorado in 2006 where he entered the retail side of the beer industry, managing a beer and wine shop for Whole Foods Market in Denver. There he became a homebrewer and immersed himself in the culture surrounding the home of the Brewer's Association and the Great American Beer Festival. He fell in love with the Rocky Mountains and enjoyed many trips hiking, backpacking and exploring the various mountain towns. There, possibly echoing the reality of once having a brewery in Sebewaing, he came to love the idea of a small-town, community-centered brewery.

Moving back to Michigan to Carrie's hometown of Milford, Ryan saw an opportunity to bring this vision to his new home. Working with his friends and area residents Tom Ouvry and Mike Last, he's thrilled to be a part of the thriving Milford community and to be sharing his passion for beer and great places to drink it!
