ADULT Michigan Beer: A Heady History

Michigan has long been called the Great Lakes State but in the past few decades it has also become known as the Great Beer State. Author Patti F. Smith will lead a talk highlighting brewers from the pioneers to the end of the 19th century through Prohibition and post WWII. Along the way, participants will discover different styles of beer from ales to lagers. Learn about how early immigrants brought their distinctive beer styles from their home countries, early western Michigan brewers, brewing consolidation after the war, and how COVID-19 altered the landscape.
