Michigan Brewery Tours!


If you are looking for a fun and unique experience for a Pure Michigan vacation,consider doing a western Michigan BREWERY TOUR. According to the Pure Michigan website “The craft beer craze is sweeping Michigan and it is clear the mitten was made for handcrafting some of the best brews in the land. Michigan is fifth in the nation in the number of breweries, microbreweries and brewpubs. Bolstered by the Great Lakes and nurtured by the glacier rich soil, here awaits a brewer’s paradise. With countless varieties of styles and tastes, Michigan is on tap to pour your new favorite.”
Starting in Sawyer, MI (Greenbush Brewing Co), following Lake Michigan up to Holland (New Holland Brewing CO), then go inland to Grand Rapids, known as Beer City USA (Brewery Vivant). From Grand Rapids, come back to Lake Michigan and visit Traverse City (North Peak Brewing Co), then go further north to Paradise, MI (Tahquamenon Falls Brewery), Escanaba (Upper Hand Brewery), Ironwood (Cold Iron Brewing), Houghton (Keweenaw Brewing Co) and then to Marquette (Marquette Harbor Brewery). Freshwater Vacation Rentals has cabins and cottages all the way up the coast where you can stay in comfort to enjoy your tour along with beautiful Michigan!
