Sparta’s Michigan Beer Cellar Successfully Sells Via Craigslist

Michigan Beer Cellar’s founder Dan Humphrey made the news last fall when he put his successful Sparta-based brew for sale on Craigslist with an asking price of over $500,000. After discussions with approximately 20 different interested parties, Michigan Beer Cellar has found it’s new owner. Chuck Brown, whose background experience includes many years in accounting and food service, has had owning and operating a restaurant as a goal. In the last couple of years, a home-brewing hobby fueled by a Mr. Beer kit leading to all-grain brewing has resulted in shifting priorities.. Chuck’s immediate focus with the brewery is to continue to brew the signature recipes and brands that founder Dan Humphrey has spent the last 3 years building, and continuing his vision to develop and push the brewery to bigger heights.
