I caught up with Travis Fritts Owner/Brewer of Detroit Beer Company at Crunchy's in East Lansing. In this interview, one of that questions we asked Travis is why drink Michigan Beer? He explains that beer is a product that can stand up to aging but beer is meant to be consumed locally and the further away a beer is from it's source, you might get a good beer and you might not. It's best to consume beer close to where it made.
The Motor City has a long-standing brewing history, and in recent years it has been revitalized thanks to a growing interest in the craft beer movement – including the 3rd Annual Detroit Fall Beer Festival.
