It’s no secret that we love our craft brews here in Michigan! Our great state has the 6th most microbreweries in the nation, and Ypsilanti hosts the largest Michigan-only beer festival in the state, the Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival. Ypsilanti is also home to the West Cross Cider Festival, featuring only Michigan-based hard ciders. It’s safe to say Michigan has some of the best craft brews.
We are celebrating American Craft Beer Week ® to support our awesome and neighborly Ypsilanti breweries. The Michigan Brewers Guild invites you to join in this celebration during May 11-17, 2020 to recognize local, independent craft brewers.
Ypsilanti area breweries have developed new ways to keep the connection between customers and business strong, from selling your favorite drinks the way you enjoy, to selling gift cards and cool merchandise. See how you can support these local breweries in Ypsilanti!
