Four Leaf Brewing is a limited liability Corporation in the state of Michigan under the name James Joy LLC. Licensed as a microbrewery since June of 2015 and a small winemaker since December 2017. Sole ownership of the company is by Amy Shindorf, with the help of a dedicated family and friends who contributes to everything from build outs to weekly recycling.
The brewery, which officially opened in August of 2015, was the inspired business idea of Amy after separation from her position she held in local government for over ten years. The idea was to build a small production brewery that would focus on quality service for the Clare County area.
