Bellaire Brown, Dragons milk, Mad Hatter,
Purple Gang, and Huma Lupa Licious these are names that let the imagination run
wild and let the tastebuds take a stroll welcome to the craft beer craze of Michigan bolstered by the great lakes and nurtured
by the glacier rich soil here awaits a brewers paradise with fresh hops growing tall in the old mission
peninsula and fresh barley fields sweeping the mitten Michigan ranks 5th in the nation in the number
of breweries, microbreweries, and brew pubs from Good Harbor Golden to Whitefish Bay Wheat from Motown Lager all the way to Parkbench
Porter Michigan is serving up a frosty glass of perfection whether you want to take in a game with a
Two Hearted Ale or just sit on a front porch sipping a Steelhead Red lets tap into life in its fullest and treat
ourselves to a taste thats Pure Michigan your trip begins at michigan.org

Its just beginning, an we've been at it for 30 years. Its not just that Michigan beers mean Michigan jobs, its about reclaiming the market from mass-produced, lowest common denominator products.

Great production! Let's capitalize on our great brewing industry. I have tried craft beers in 7 other states, and ours is #1!

Check out "Loggers Brewery" when in Saginaw. All the tables and chairs are Michigan Amish made. Its an old church in a residential neighborhood converted into a brewery.
