About The Brewery

Jamex Brewing Company

Jamex Brewing Co. is the brainchild of Metro Detroit natives and husband-and-wife team, Jeff and Kat Kaye.

They first were introduced to the craft beer world after spending a few years in San Diego. Right away they were enamored with the entire craft beer culture. It was so laid back, creative and inviting!

Jamex Brewing Co. prides itself on its use of a large variety of high quality malts, hops, and yeast strains in order to bring exceptional and true-to-style flavors. They also purchase a large portion of ingredients from Michigan maltsters and hop farms.

The small, 2-barrel batch system will give the brewer the ability to experiment and try new recipes all the time. The idea is to have one or two new beers on tap every week so customers always have something new to try.

The Kaye's look forward to making Jamex Brewing Co. a home in St. Clair Shores and joining the craft beer industry in bringing good beer to the good people!

About our Brewery


Jeff Kaye

Jeff Kaye is a husband and father to two young boys. He has always enjoyed fine beer, but his passion started when he and his wife moved to San Diego & fell in love with craft beer culture.

For one birthday, he set out to make a batch in their very hot, poorly air-conditioned Southern California apartment. If you know anything about making beer, you will know that this did not turn out well!

The first brewing mishap did not deter Jeff, who is a biochemist and historian at heart. He began his own research to discover everything about yeast behavior, different malted grains, and ever-evolving hops. He studied the history of each beer style based on climate, geography, water, and culture.

He won a bronze medal for his Doppelbock at the Michigan Beer Cup, and is always researching and tinkering, constantly looking for new trends and recipes.

He looks forward to making brewing his life!
