In 2008, Sleepwalker founders, Matt Jason and Jeremy Sprague, met over beers at Emil’s, on Lansing’s Eastside, to discuss Matt’s dream of opening a distillery in the capital city of Michigan. Matt and Jeremy knew that Lansing, as the capital of one of the country’s great beer states, deserved its own great homegrown beer and whiskey. Their desire to fill this void, and their love of food and drink led the two to form Sleepwalker.
Sleepwalker is a state of mind. Its products invite customers to turn off the busy part of their day and provide them room to dream and play.
Sleepwalker aims to put Lansing’s Eastside on the map as a destination for delicious handcrafted interpretations of classic beers and spirits. Through the use of the finest ingredients, many of them from right here in Mid-Michigan, we’ll brew beer and create spirits of, and for, the people of Lansing, Michigan and beyond.
Matt and Jeremy will continue to learn and explore while creating different styles of beer and whiskey. Their dream is to make the world a better place by sharing good food and drink with their community, increase their knowledge of brewing, distilling, fresh food and create a true identity for Lansing in the international brewing and distilling universe.
