“Eight years ago I had my first craft beer in Traverse City. I didn’t like it at first,” says Brent Payeur. His brother Brad adds: “We started going on tours. We’d hit ten different breweries, started keeping a diary, then started touring facilities.” The thirty-eight-year-old identical twins, whose family owns and operates Diamond Glass & Feiner’s, are still in the glass business (which may be the oldest extant business in Ann Arbor, something they reasoned out when they discovered they predated Arnet’s). Behind it, they’ve been gradually building a brewpub. In mid-January they guessed the Glasshouse Brewery would open “in about six weeks.”
