Michigan Listed As One Of The Top 5 States For Beer In America

Play episode

There’s no doubt about it, Michiganders love their brews.

And we have good reason to. With such well known options like Bell’s Oberon, Founders or Atwater to the lesser-known like the excellent Ninja Chicken by Falling Down Beer Company or the wonderful small batches Batch Brewing Company produces (along with many other great producers) it’s not a surprise to us where Michigan places on the list at number four, only behind Colorado, California and Oregon.

Says Yahoo! Travel/Thrillist:

[quote_box_center]Beer in Michigan is a way of life, an economic booster that’s helping Detroit pull out of the apocalypse and a soul cleanser up in the UP, where long winters are made better with a growler from Ore Dock. And if that’s not convincing enough, consider this: in Ann Arbor and East Lansing, when the chaos of a tailgate clears, you’ll see as many empty bottles of craft beer scattered about as you will tallboys with holes punched in the side. In Michigan, beer love starts early.[/quote_box_center]

Fun fact? Michigan has one brewery for every 50,000 adults, according to the Michigan Brewers Guild.
