THE List: Michigan Brewing Establishments

Notes on THE list:

As I launched my quest to visit all of the beer brewing establishments in the Mitten state, it quickly became obvious that my first order of business was to find said list. Shockingly, I was unable to find a complete one online. Heck, I even had difficulty finding information on individual brewery websites. I utilized what I could find in print, on the Interwebs and finally had to call in a few favors.

Below, arranged in groups by alphabetical order, are all the known establishments which brew beer. The links to individual pages include information which I wanted for my Quest for 318+. I thought maybe someone else may find it useful.

Please Note: These pages will be updated over the course of 2017 as I complete my Quest. I didn’t want to just give vital statistics but also some TLC based on my travels.

This gathering of information has been and will be a labor of love. Although I’ve done everything to avoid inaccuracies, shit changes quickly in this industry . . . and there is a reason I couldn’t find this all in one place. No sane person would attempt to complete this monumental task. Good thing I’m not sane.

Please feel free to email me at emily@mittenbeergirl.com with updates or errors you notice. I’ll buy you a beer as thanks.

I am grateful to the following sources of information

  • Michigan Beer Guide: If you can’t find one in print, you aren’t looking hard enough. This was first printed in 1997 and is one of the constants of Michigan Beer. Rex and Mary Halfpenny are my heros. This is the most accurate official listing available.
  • Michigan Brewers Guild: They have an awesome listing and website of member brewing establishments.
