Two Michigan Breweries Named In Best Breweries In America
Michigan is becoming one of the premier states for craft beer and it's not just the big breweries like Founder's, Bell's, and New Holland either. Thrillist released their best breweries in America list and of the 32 they listed, two were here in Michigan.
Speciation Artisan Ales was the first Michigan Brewery that made the list and it is located right down the road in Comstock Park. The brewery specializes in "wild, fruited, spontaneously fermented, and sour beers" and they are upgrading their facility this summer to allow for even more brand new experimental brews. You can find their beers all across Michigan, but they don't have a tasting room at their brewery yet. They've only been open for 2 years but are already fostering a cult following.
The second Michigan Brewery that made the list is Old Nation in the town of Williamston, which is just east of Lansing. Old Nation made this list in part because of their famous M-43 N.E. IPA which was the first beer they brewed. They have a full-service restaurant and brewpub so you can sit and enjoy your beer with some fantastic food as well.
