@Kzoo and @bikeman564™ must have tried some (or ALL) of these by now, eh?

Put these 16 sweet new Michigan breweries on your must-try list

By Amy Sherman | asherma2@mlive.com

The brewing scene continues to grow across Michigan, with new spots opening in the midst of difficult times.

These new breweries are getting creative as to how they operate, with many of them changing their business plans on the fly to adjust to the current situation in the coronavirus era.

Expanding patio seating areas, adding to-go options like crowlers and offering take-out food are just some of the ways these new places have been working through the pandemic. It’s never easy to open a brewery, but add in a statewide shut-down and it becomes a little more chaotic.

Some might ask if we’ve reached a saturation point in the industry, with so many breweries open across our state, and so many Michigan beers on the shelves of stores. Not quite yet, as the new spots that are opening seem to be focused on serving their local communities first, and not on a wide distribution footprint. Most, if not all, of these breweries are hoping to become gathering places for their town or region, offering not just beer, but a sense of community.

These 16 spots offer something new for Michigan craft beer lovers to try, and all have a variety of options as to how you can experience them. We encourage you to check with the breweries before you visit or order, as hours and offerings may change at any time.
