Celebrate American Craft Beer Week!

At last, the beer lovers who waited patiently through Michigan wine month can celebrate!

This week we’ll be exploring the West Michigan craft beer scene. To kick things off, consider signing the Declaration of Beer Independence. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll declare:

I declare the beer I choose to enjoy is not a commodity, but more importantly an artistic creation of living liquid history made from passionate innovators. The beer I drink furthers our culture and teaches us geography and helps to nurture a sense of community, and helps to make the world a better place, and,

I declare to practice the concept of “Informed Consumption,” seeking and deserving to know if my beer comes from a small and independent brewer or if it is owned by a large brewing company. I want to know why so many of my local beer brands are not available in many of my favorite restaurants, bars and beer stores, and I encourage beer sellers to offer a wide selection of beer styles and beer brands that includes beer from my local and regional breweries.

To which local brewery would YOU like to raise a pint?
