[QUOTE="wpshadowens;5216604"]

IMO, Hopcat & Brewery Vivant are also must see.



Yes yes they are especially Brewery Vivant I haven't had a bad beer from them yet and I highly recommend tart side of the moon if it's still available enjoy your visit.

I love Founders, but every time I go there they are PACKED! I've gone to Hopcat twice just because Founders was so busy. And Hopcat was awesome! Love their killer mac n cheese. The first time we went their brewery was brand new and we got a bad beer. The manager admitted it was not very good (so why did you sell it??) but since then they have been putting out so very good stuff.

I am lucky to live close to Crankers. Adam makes some great beer there, and they hired a guy from Arbor Brewing, Bill I believe, to help out.

That and quite a few others are on my "to-do" list! Maybe one of these weekends I can take the wife out on a road trip and see a few of these unnatural wonders of Michigan.

West Michigan in general is craft beer paradise. Im lucky to live in the middle of all the good breweries but more times than not find myself at New Holland and Odd Side knowing brewers at both.

Yeah, don't forget Odd Side Ales and Perrin Brewing. They make the taste. Also check out Greenbush and The Livery - both making great beers.

Moved back to Battle Creek from Vermont a couple of months ago. I've only made it to Arcadia once since then. Every time I try to go to Bell's it is packed!
Haven't had a chance to get up to GR yet.
