Michigan breweries make great beer and these medals prove it.

If there is one thing that I love to do, it is to try out different beers from different breweries throughout Michigan. So I like and some I don't, but that is part of the fun and just another great way to support local small businesses. If you need a challenge for the holiday season, 15 different Michigan brews won medals that the U.S. Open Beer Championship...try them all!
