Default What beers to get in Michigan?

So one of my freinds is going back home to Michigan for a few weeks this summer and asked what beers he should bring back for me to try. I've never been in that area, so I don't really know what's available out there that isn't available here in the Northwest. I told him to get some Bell's Two Hearted, but what else should I have him look for?

Thanks

Jolly Pumpkin!!!

Its an Ohio brewery, but if you can't get Great Lakes, he should pick some of that up too.

Founders for sure, any variety. (Their Pale Ale is delicious).
New Holland Mad Hatter IPA.
Bells is hit and miss. I don't care for their normal Pale Ale, but Two Hearted is maybe the best beer ever. It's out of season, but their Expedition Stout is amazing as well. If you like Wheat beers, Bells Oberon is really good. I don't like 'em, but I can drink Oberon.
Arcadia Ales makes a kick ass IPA.
Lots of good MI beer, that's for sure.

Dark Horse Brewery in Marshall MI. They have an amber ale that is very good, along with some other fine styles.
Cheers!

Jolly Pumpkin is outstanding. They are in Southern Michigan not far from Ann Arbor. Excellent beers.

Dark horse beers rock, there IPA is great also.

Michigan Brewing Company's Full Sail IPA and Cellas White are also yummy.

Dark Horse rocks, I absolutely love their blueberry stout (I can't remember the name of it right now) and Scotty Karate scottish ale. Awesome beer.

Bell's third coast old ale is one of my favorite beers of all time. Just make sure not to get it confused with the third coast beer(TCB is good too, but it's no old ale, and it's not something I'd go out of my way to get). I've seen bottles of their Batch 9000 brew around too, that stuff was great. I'm not sure how available it is right now though.

Also, Short's Huma Lupa is the shiznit

Founders and Bells are two of my favorites from MI!
