Most anniversaries call for a toast but in Journeyman Distillery’s case, it called for a new restaurant.
The Three Oaks, Mich., distillery opened its new restaurant, Staymaker, to the public for the first time Oct. 3, according to a news release from Journeyman, just in time for its fourth anniversary.

“Each of our dishes has been constructed with the distillery in mind,” head chef Luke Caenepeel said in the news release. “Just like our spirits, the food is small-batch and artisanal.”
The restaurant seats 125 people and has tables that overlook the new production facilities. The expansion also includes an event space for up to 500 people.

Staymaker’s name comes from the building’s history, formerly Featherbone Factory, according to the news release. The space was used to make corsets and “staymakers” were those who made the garments.
It will celebrate the official grand opening Oct. 31 with a small release of Journeyman’s wheat whiskey.
