Friday & Saturday Tickets Available for Rescheduled Michigan Winter Beer Festival: March 2-3, 2018

After last week’s flooding of the Grand River in Comstock Park forced the rescheduling of the 13th Annual Winter Beer Festival, the Michigan Brewers Guild says it now has Saturday, March 3 tickets available to the previously sold out day, for $50 in advance and $55 at the gate. Tickets for Friday, March 2 are also available for $45 in advance and $50 at the gate. Online tickets can be purchased at

Original tickets will be honored on the respective Friday and Saturday this weekend. Those unable to attend during the rescheduled weekend have until 11:59pm on Wednesday, February 28 to request a refund by emailing

Those traveling to the festival from the south should be advised that Northbound US-131 will be CLOSED at 28th Street (M-11) for bridge work from 9pm Friday, March 2 through 5am on Monday, March 5. Michigan Department of Transportation says northbound through-traffic should take westbound M-6 to eastbound I-196 to northbound US-131.

The Michigan Brewers Guild is the network of innovative and passionate brewers that serves as the recognized advocate for the Michigan craft beer industry. The mission of the Guild is to promote and protect the Michigan craft beer industry with an overarching goal to help craft beer acquire 20% of the market by 2025.

Michigan’s thriving brewing industry conservatively contributes more than $144 million in wages with a total economic contribution of more than $600 million. In terms of overall number of breweries, microbreweries and brewpubs, Michigan ranks #6 in the nation – thus supporting its claim as “The Great Beer State.”

Local Flooding Forces Rescheduling of Michigan Winter Beer Festival to March 2-3, 2018

(COMSTOCK PARK, Mich) – Anticipated flooding on the Grand River in Comstock Park has forced the Michigan Brewers Guild to postpone this weekend’s popular Winter Beer Festival to next weekend, Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3. All tickets already purchased will be honored on the respective Friday and Saturday of the new weekend.

After meeting with the Whitecaps staff and taking into consideration information provided to us by the National Weather Service and the Kent County Emergency Management, the MBG Board of Directors has decided to take cautious approach and postpone the festival by a week to allow the Grand River to drop below the flood stage.

Rain is forecast for Friday morning between 5am and 10am. That will contribute to the levels of the Grand River, which is expected to crest its 18-foot flood stage on Friday afternoon and rise as much as three feet above that over the course of the weekend. The Sheriff’s Department has issued Flood Warnings for this section of the Grand River until Tuesday, February 27.

“We reviewed several contingency plans and discussed multiple options before coming to this decision,” says Scott Graham, MBG Executive Director, “but in the end the safety of our attendees, our breweries and volunteers is of utmost concern.”

Over 9,000 tickets have been sold for the festival, with a “Sell Out” status for Saturday at 6440. Friday tickets are still available for purchase for $45 in advance ( or $50 at the event at the main Whitecaps ticket office.

At this point, the Guild expects most of the 142-member breweries to participate in the rescheduled dates and the event to run just the same.

Michigan Peanut Butter Beers Deliver Unique Sweet & Nutty Flavors

Did you know that peanut butter made by the Aztecs and Incas around 1000 BC was more of a paste and not nearly as creamy as the peanut butter we know today?

Among those who helped modify this food over its more recent history was Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (founder of Kellogg’s in Battle Creek). In 1895, Kellogg patented a process for creating peanut butter from raw peanuts—marketing it as a nutritious protein substitute for people who could hardly chew on solid food.

Today, peanut butter is used as more than just a spread on toast or for cookies, candies and other desserts. Michigan craft brewers are using this thick, nutty spread in a variety of beers. And, on National Peanut Butter Day (Wednesday, January 24) we felt compelled to share these with you!

The B.O.B.: Peanut Butter Porter (6.6% ABV | 30 IBUs). One of Brewmaster John’s most requested masterpieces is a blend of peanuts, chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar and milk, brewed in a porter fashion. Available on draft in the Grand Rapids pub.

Draught Horse Brewery: Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout (6% ABV | 40 IBUs). This medium-bodied stout exhibits flavors of rich chocolate and peanut butter. Find it at the New Hudson brewery for sampling.

Grand Armory Brewing Company: Nutter Your Business – Peanut Butter Stout (5% ABV). Built on a chocolatey milk stout base, the peanut butter makes this beer taste like your favorite proprietary cookie. If anyone asks why you’d want a beer to taste like dessert, tell them it’s “Nutter Your Business.” Available in cans and on draft – including on January 24 at the Grand Haven brewery during a special Peanut Butter Day Celebration.

The Mitten Brewing Company: Peanuts & Crackerjack (6% ABV | 30 IBUs). This sweet robust porter is made with loads of REAL peanuts, peanut butter and a kiss of caramel malt. While not currently available for National Peanut Butter Day, make plans to find this brew on March 29 – opening day for the Detroit Tigers – in 4-pack 12-ounce cans and at the Grand Rapids pub.

Odd Side Ales: We Be Jammin’ (5% ABV | 21 IBUs). This wheat beer is brewed with peanut butter and raspberry—a liquefied PB&J (with the crust cut off for you, too). Then, check out Peanut Butter Cup Stout (7% ABV | 33 IBUs). This seasonal favorite hosts a chocolate and peanut butter party in your mouth. Also available in NITRO (draft only). Find these bottled beers in the Grand Haven pub and in distribution around Michigan.

Old Mill Brewpub: Nuddy Buddy Peanut Butter Porter (5.3% ABV | 53 IBUs). The chocolatey porter is infused with roasted peanuts and fair-trade Mexican vanilla to mimic the characteristic of your favorite childhood cookie. Sample it on draft in the Plainwell pub.

One Well Brewing: Professor Nutbutter’s Peanut Butter Golden Ale (5.3% ABV). This golden ale is brewed with peanut butter, making for a great light beer option with the flavor of a peanut butter sandwich. Available in can and on draft in the Kalamazoo brewery.

River Rouge Brewing Company: Peanut Butter Chocolate Stencel Stout (6.8% ABV | 70 IBUs). This American stout is made with lots of peanut butter and chocolate. Find it at the brewery in Royal Oak as well as at HopCat – Royal Oak at the time of this release.

Rupert’s Brew House: Peanut Butter Porter (5.3% ABV). Brewers use peanut butter in the “dry hopping” stage to enhance the flavor while creating a well-balanced flavor that is always on tap at the Kalamazoo pub.

Saugatuck Brewing: Peanut Butter Porter (5.7% ABV | 35 IBUs). This smooth, bold and creamy brew is seriously rich and delicious, crafted with peanut butter flavor – but no actual peanut butter so those who have a nut allergy can still enjoy it without fear of having a reaction to it. While this beer isn’t currently on draft at the Saugatuck brewery, you can find it at select locations around the state (Iisted online at “find our beer”).

Short’s Brewing: PB&J – Peanut Butter & Jelly Ale (8% ABV | 30 IBUs). Take the popular Uber Goober Peanut Oatmeal Stout and blend it with the famous flagship Soft Parade—a fruit infused rye ale, and viola—a liquid version of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. This customer created concoction can also be found for a limited time in bottles and is available any time Uber Goober is on tap at the Bellaire pub.

Witch’s Hat Brewing: Traxx (14% ABV). This imperial stout is brewed with molasses and lactose, then aged in bourbon barrels with peanut butter, coconut, vanilla beans and Mindo cocoa nibs added. While not currently available, make plans to taste this brew in mid-March when it is released in bottles. It is the most sought-after beer in the Witch’s Hat line, inspired by Moose Tracks Ice Cream. Also look for You Just Got Jammed (9%) – an imperial milk stout brewed with lactose with peanut butter, boysenberry and cherry. This beer is currently available in the South Lyon tap room, with limited distribution throughout the state. It will be a fall seasonal release coming this fall.


Celebrate National Cookie Day with #MiBeer

In honor of #NationalCookieDay we offer up these cookie-inspired #MiBeer options for you!

  • Nutter Your Business (Peanut Butter Stout) from Grand Armory Brewing Company in Grand Haven tastes like your favorite proprietary cookie.
  • Oatmeal Raisin Cookie from Beards Brewery is available in draft only at the Petoskey pub. This Amber ale brewed with all of the fixings of a great oatmeal raisin cookie: raisins, oatmeal, brown sugar and cinnamon.
  • Look for Oatmeal Creme Pie from Pigeon Hill Brewery in Muskegon in cans around the state.
  • Savor Dunkel & Deep Fried Oreo from Frankenmuth Brewery. This classic Munich style Dunkel Lager is a five-grain beer, smooth and light bodied. It even won the Gold Medal in the Dark Lager category at the 2016 World Expo of Beer.
  • Because the holidays are for rockin’ out while eating cookies, Arbor Brewing Company in Ann Arbor delivers Bake Sale–a full bodied double milk stout brewed with with molasses, lactose, cacao, cinnamon and vanilla bean.
  • Liberty Street Brewing Company’s Windmill Cookie (aka Fall Shandy) is the Pun-Kin Pie Ale with a splash of our house made root beer, resulting in an increased spice character that is identical to the Windmill Cookies with the slivered almonds in them.  The cookies are difficult to find, but beer is available through the fall season and into winter at the Plymouth pub.
  • Releasing today (December 4) is Nana’s No Bake Cookie Porter from Trail Point Brewing Company in Allendale.  Made from Peanut Butter, Chocolate and Oats, it is just like biting into one of Nana’s famous no bake chocolate-peanut butter cookies.
  • Naughty Girl Stout from Right Brain Brewery in Traverse City is deeply flavored, yet refreshing and cooling. This sensual, full-bodied stout combines rich chocolate flavors with an infusion of Biodynamic Peppermint from Light of Day Organics in Traverse City.
  • Customers at Brewery Terra Firma in Traverse City say their Ancho Chili Dutch Double Chocolate Porter infused with oranges and cinnamon tastes just like a cookie.
  • The Snickerdoodle Porter at Arclight Brewing in Watervliet tastes just like a cookie in a glass.

Something’s Brewing with Coffee & Craft Beer

Today — Friday, September 29 — is #NationalCoffeeDay! The perfect time to celebrate the blending of roasted coffee into craft beer for a decadent, dark and flavorful brew! These Michigan breweries are serving up something special featuring two of our favorite beverages:

5 Lakes Brewing, Door—HIPPY SPEEDBALL (ABV: 3.7% | IBU: 20). This Brown Ale has a nice roasty malt flavor but is not too heavy. The Espresso Beans add a nice punch to the tastes buds to wake them up!

Arbor Brewing Company, Ann Arbor—ESPRESSO LOVE BREAFAST STOUT (ABV: 6.7% | IBUs: 15). Oatmeal and 20 pounds of fresh roasted coffee from a mix the Ugly Mug Café and Hyperion Coffee in Ypsilanti, MI contribute to a mildly chalky espresso character balanced by a rich, sweet creamy maltiness. Coffee finish dissolves into chocolate with a slight toasty bitterness. Pairs well with desserts, especially dark chocolate, raspberries and cheesecake.

Baffin Brewing, St. Clair Shores—BOB BARLEY (ABV: 8.5% | IBUs: 65). Brewed with a mixture of malts including carafa malts, chocolate malt, roasted barley and black malt.  We balance the brew to allow the coffee to flourish and shine without being overwhelmed by a traditional imperial stout profile.  We hand select the beans with our friends over at New Order Coffee in Midtown Detroit, MI and have them roast the beans.  After allowing the beans to de-gas for two days we cold brew them in a tank free of oxygen for 18 hours.  Once the cold brew is finished we blend the coffee with the stout to create our Bob Barley.  Originally named due to us using 100% Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee, until the flavor profile of the bean changed.  Now we stick to Brazilian or Colombian to hunt for a nutty / chocolate flavor. We use cold brewed coffee instead of hot coffee or espresso is due to two reasons: 1. Hot coffee is very acidic and quite astringent.  Hot coffee and espresso is highly susceptible to oxygenation and tends to stale quite quickly.  Cold brewed coffee has a more neutral PH compared to its hot counterpart and lasts much longer. 2. Cold brewed coffee has a much much different flavor than hot or room temperature brewed coffee.  The coffee is significantly smoother, more balanced, and nuttier. It’s also delicious barrel aged (Vanilla, coconut, bourbon, and much more oak flavors)!!

Bastone Brewery, Royal Oak—CAFE BLANCA (ABV: 6.3%). Café Blanca, or white coffee, is a twist on conventional darker coffee beers. This golden Belgian style ale is brewed with coffee and cocoa nibs and has a rich coffee aroma and delicious cocoa finish.

Eternity Brewing, Howell—NABOO COFFEE STOUT (ABV: 6.5% | IBUs: 28). A dark, bold, coffee-forward stout brewed with a special proprietary Eternity blend of coffee prepared and fresh roasted by a local roaster! This beer is named after one of the family dogs, and yes, she is named after a planet in Star Wars. STAR S’MORES: Episode VII the Mallow Awakens (ABV: 5.2% | IBUs: 19). Perk up with this eye-opening episode of our STAR S’MORES beer series! This is our s’mores-inspired brown ale with a jolt of coffee! (Can you tell we like Star Wars?!)

Final Gravity Brewing, Decatur—EYE OPENER (ABV: 9.8% | IBUs: 55). This Russian Imperial Stout brewed with two types of chocolate and two different coffee beans. Huge coffee notes with subtle chocolate flavors and a heavy body.

Founders Brewing, Grand Rapids—BREAKFAST STOUT (ABV: 8.3% | IBUs: 60). The coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

Grand Armory Brewing, Grand Haven—ALDEA ESPRESSO MILK STOUT (ABV: 5% | IBUs: 25). This espresso-infused stout features fresh Aldea Coffee espresso shots!  This stout also contains lactose which provides a sweeter taste and a rich creamy mouthfeel.

Newaygo Brewing, Newaygo—UNCOMMON ESPRESSO STOUT (ABV 5.8% | IBUs: 35). Oatmeal Stout with fresh ground Espresso Roast from Uncommon Coffee Roasters in Saugatuck. A couple times each year we serve it on cask and it is like a Beer Latte.

North Peak Brewing—PERK (ABV: 6.8% | IBUs: 21). This Coffee Rye Ale is brewed with plenty of rye malt and Mighty Good Coffee and is available exclusively at Avalon Cafe Ann Arbor and Avalon Cafe Detroit.

One Well Brewing, Kalamazoo—SWEET WATER STREET (ABV: 7.1% | IBUs: 49). This coffee donut porter is made with donut holes from Sweetwater’s Donut Mill and Water Street Coffee Roaster, both local staples in Kalamazoo.

Our Brewing Company, Holland—STUDY BUDDY MILK STOUT (ABV: 8% | IBUs: 20). This smooth and robust milk stout that is brewed with lactose sugar and Mad Cap Coffee.

Petoskey Brewing, Petoskey—SUPER TROOPER COFFE & DONUT BROWN ALE (ABV: 7.3% | IBUs: 12). This winter seasonal is a brown ale that has chocolate malt, Colombian coffee and donuts in it, sourced from local companies. The coffee grounds are from Higher Grounds in nearby Traverse City and the donuts are from Johan’s Pastry Shop in Petoskey. Ten percent of total sales of Super Trooper will benefit Michigan Concerns of Police Survivors. MI-C.O.P.S. is a nonprofit that provides support to the families, friends and colleagues of law enforcement officials and police officers who have died in the line of duty. The organization offers information, support programs, retreats, activities and events that all those affected by the loss can take part in throughout the year.

Pigeon Hill Brewing, Muskegon—WALTER GETS BUZZED (ABV: 5% | IBUs: 15). Walter Gets Buzzed is our Walter BlondAle steeped with snickerdoodle coffee (which is specially roasted for us by Magnum Coffee). Light flavors of coffee and snickerdoodle (hazelnut and cinnamon) make this a great way to get your (coffee) buzz on! LA International Beer Competition, 2017: Gold Medal Winner, Coffee Category; Best of Craft Beer Awards, 2017: Gold Medal Winner, Coffee Category; Michael’s Mom, 2016: “Oh my gosh, it’s delicious!”

Hudsonville Pike 51 Brewing Co, Hudsonville—SABOTAGE (ABV: 6.3% | IBUs: 27). A deep and rich milk stout made with fresh roasted Ethiopian coffee from Rowster New American Coffee.

Roak Brewing, Royal Oak—HIGHER GROUND – TURKISH COFFEE STOUT. (ABV: 6.2% | IBUs: 38). A Strong, firm, yet surprisingly smooth Turkish Coffee Stout. We took inspiration from the lightly spiced after dinner coffee drink originally from the Middle East. We brewed a creamy stout with coffee beans from Ferndale’s own, Chazzano Coffee. Delicious, drinkable and a coffee lover’s dream.

Rochester Mills Beer Co., Rochester & Auburn Hills—WOODWARD BOLD COFFEE MILKSHAKE STOUT (ABV: 5.0% | IBUs: 19). This coffee milk stout is brewed with Detroit Bold Coffee Co.’s locally roasted 100% Arabica Woodward Ave. blend coffee beans. The latest in the series of flavored versions of Milkshake Stout, Rochester Mills’ most popular brew. A cup of local joe and a beer come together for an intricate and unique taste to be enjoyed any time of day. Woodward Bold pairs as easily with chocolate cake as it does with a hearty steak and eggs breakfast. Also available on Nitro. Limited run through the end of 2017.

Sister Lakes Brewing, Dowagiac—DAY STARTER (ABV: 6% | IBUs: 35). Get your morning on the lake started right. Organic, fair trade Nicaraguan coffee beans roasted in Grand Rapids by Ferris Coffee are steeped in the boil kettle, giving this American brown ale a pleasant coffee aroma and flavor.”

Starving Artist Brewing, Ludington—COCONUT RUBENESQUE (CCR) (ABV: 6.5% | IBUs: 27). CCR utilizes locally roasted coffee and does not use locally grown coconuts.  Sweet, roast, strong coffee notes, and subtle coconut.  This medium bodied milk stout is enjoyable year-round.

Tecumseh Brewing Co., Tecumseh—A FINER TEMPTRESS (ABV: 7.2% | IBUs: 20). This blonde ale brewed with oats and creme brûlée coffee.

Unity Vibrations, Ypsilanti—COLD BREW COFFEE KOMBUCHA (ABV: 1.5%).  Featuring organic and fair-trade Honduran beans sourced from Roos Roast in Ann Arbor blended with plain Kombucha tea. We make an in house coldbrew at unity, add it at time of bottling and it does a bottle condition.

Wolverine State Brewing, Ann Arbor—BARISTA (ABV: 6.5% | IBUs: 13). As brewers, we wanted to combine what we start the day with (coffee) and end the day with (beer) into one mystical elixir: Barista Cold Brew Coffee Lager. With bountiful roastiness, toasted malt and hints of cocoa, Barista boldly illustrates what a harmonious pair coffee and beer can be.

Plus, our friends at Mlive have pulled together their “13 Michigan coffee beers you need to try.”

Celebrate #NationalDogDay with #PureMichigan #CraftBeer

By Joe O’Connell

You step outside and your eyeglasses immediately fog up. You break a sweat simply by walking to the mailbox. Mowing the lawn sounds like an undertaking akin to building Rome. All you want to do is stand in the back yard, drink a refreshing Michigan beer, and run the frigid water from the hose over your head. When it’s time to walk your canine friend, it might also mean that she or he wants to turn around and head back home before reaching the end of the driveway.

Ah, the dog days of summer.

That phrase, however, doesn’t actually have anything to do with real dogs. Instead, it has its roots in ancient Greece when the star Sirius, or what the Greeks called the “dog star”, would rise just before the sun. The time of year when this would happen coincided with what, in that part of the world, were then typically the hottest days of the year. Over time, this evolved into us referring to our hottest, late summer periods as the “dog days of summer”.

If we could speak the same language, dogs might tell us that they’re relieved to learn that they’re not actually associated with such miserable weather. After all, they are man’s best friend. And for dog people, that old adage makes all the sense in the world. Among the many reasons: they love to play with us, they help us to exercise, they listen without interrupting (usually), they bring us comfort in our times of sorrow, and they provide companionship, loyalty, protection, and unconditional love. We love dogs so much that we even have National Dog Day, which is celebrated annually on August 26 to encourage their adoption.

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), about 3.3 million dogs enter shelters in the U.S. each year. Michigan shelters alone took in about 66,000 dogs in 2016. So if you’re looking for a pooch, there are plenty patiently waiting for you to take them to their forever home!

One happy “tail” has a connection to Michigan breweries. Earlier this year, Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue in Grand Rapids convinced Michigan breweries to sponsor a puppy after the shelter took in a mother who had a litter of thirteen! It didn’t take much convincing as the breweries happily jumped at the chance to make a donation and name their sponsored pup. Hearts of Hope is happy to report that all but one (one sadly passed away from a birth defect and surgery complications) have been adopted. The mother of the thirteen, Harmony (whom the shelter named after Michigan’s Harmony Brewing Company in Grand Rapids), is expected to be available for adoption by late October/early November.

So, when it’s time to step up, it’s clear that Michigan breweries don’t need to be hounded. And when it comes to expressing their appreciation for our canine companions, Michigan brewers choose not to roll over. This can also be seen in their beer names and beer label artwork. Some of the beers taste so good that they may give you “paws”. The list below should give you a start on what to try, but if I’ve missed any please don’t bark at me – making comprehensive lists can be “ruff”! Anyway, what are you waiting for? Go fetch one of these tasty brews!

Naboo Coffee Stout, Eternity Brewing (6%) Named after the family dog, Naboo. And yes, Naboo herself is named after Queen Amidala’s planet in Star Wars.

Devil Dog Oatmeal Stout, Roak Brewing Company (8.5%, 45 IBUs) A tribute beer for the WWII K-9 fighting unit. It’s a full-bodied and hearty stout with notes of coffee, chocolate, and toasted oats. Brewed in honor of our nation’s finest soldiers – on two feet and four – Roak gives back a portion of the proceeds from all Devil Dog sales to their local VA hospital in Detroit.

Hans’ Golden Tripel, Fenton Winery & Brewery (9%, 10 IBUs) This brew has sweet aromas and flavors, a hint of spice, and can be a thirst quencher because of the balance in flavors. Named for their beloved German Shepherd, Hans, Fenton Winery & Brewery donates 10% of all proceeds to Adopt-A-Pet Fenton.

The Hef Hefeweizen, Frankenmuth Brewery (5.2%, 17 IBUs) Featuring Frankie the Dachsund on its label, this refreshing German style Hefeweizen is top fermented, unfiltered and lightly hopped to achieve its smooth, pleasant flavor and unmistakable cloudy appearance. The Hef’s sweet hints of clove and banana will certainly treat your palate. 2016 World Expo of Beer Competition Gold Medal Winner, for Best German Wheat! For a bit of history on the brewery’s imagery of Frankie the Dog on their “dog-gone good beer” labels, click here.

Bam Bière Farmhouse Ale, Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales (4.5%, 24 IBUs) Named for the brewery’s Jack Russell, who struck by a car, bounced back in fine tenacious Jack Russell fashion. This farmhouse ale is brewed for those of us who knocked down, have picked up, dusted off, and carried on undaunted. Golden naturally cloudy, bottle conditioned and dry hopped for a perfectly refreshing balance of spicy malts, hops, and yeast.

Snoring Basset Brown Ale, Pigeon Hill Brewing Company 5.9%, 45 IBUs  Snoring Basset Brown Ale – 5.9%, 45 IBU – A hoppy brown ale, Snoring Basset is brown in color with ruby edges and a light tan head. The aroma is well-rounded, with lightly hoppy citrus notes balanced by malty caramel notes. Medium-bodied, the beer begins with toasty caramel and chocolate flavors, but ends with a slight hoppy finish.

Old Siberian Winter Ale, Cranker’s Brewery (7.3%, 50 IBUs) Tames the brutish northern winter with its full rich flavors of caramel and dark fruit. It is rich and expressive, malt forward, and begs to be enjoyed in front of the fireplace. This is a terrific beer to drink this winter, or age in your cellar and allow it to develop further for years to come. Let Old Siberian become on of the bright spots amid our long frigid winters.

Beagle Brown Ale, B.O.B.’s Brewery (6%, 30 IBUs) A classic British Brown Ale, medium bodied, with wonderful coffee, bread and toffee notes, and a delicate Michigan hop influence.

Donkey’s First Batch Altbier, Sister Lakes Brewing Company (5%, 41 IBUs) The beer that started it all! This German style amber ale is a tribute to the brewery founders’ very first batch of homebrew, brewed in 2010 with their Siberian Husky brewdog, lovingly referred to as “Donkey.” RIP, Donkey.

Edward’s Portly Brown Ale, Witch’s Hat Brewing Company (5.4%, 30 IBUs) A malty, chocolatey, and robust brown ale named after the brewery’s beloved Springer Spaniel. A portion of the proceeds from this beer have been donated to the Humane Society of Huron Valley since the brewery opened! Donations to date to HSHV total over $10,000!

Old Boys’ Brewhouse  With beers like Pointer Pilsner and Dogtail IPA, this brewery, located in Spring Lake, has dedicated its entire operation to dogs. OBB attributes its canine-oriented theme to the influence and memory of a Chocolate Labrador, “Brutus, the snake, Malone”, AKA Old Boy. Old Boy touched the lives of his family and friends with his gentle demeanor, attentiveness, unique eating habits (catching fish out of the lake, for example), and most of all by his ability to interact with humans. It is that special bond humans form with their dogs which Old Boys’ Brewhouse, Inc. wishes to celebrate.

These beers, among many other Michigan beers, should be a tasty treat for you – but not for your dog! Remember that beer is toxic to dogs and so are hops, so be sure not to let your pup ingest any amount of either. Instead, consider getting her or him some Michigan brewery swag, like a collar or a bandana!

With 248 breweries and counting, “The Great Beer State” of Michigan ranks sixth in terms of number of breweries with craft beer having an over $1.8 billion impact on Michigan’s economy, according to the Brewers Association. The variety and quality available here provides every reason to Drink Michigan Beer®!

When not at his day job of being a budget and policy analyst, Joe O’Connell exploring all things beer is a top interest of his. He has been a homebrewer since 2010, earned his craft brewing certificate, volunteered at numerous beer festivals, and is a co-organizer of the second-longest-running beer festival in the United States
