Travel in style to Michigan's Breweries

The craft beer craze has been sweeping Michigan for a few years now and it is clear the mitten was made for handcrafting some of the best brews in the land.

Every summer I listen to more stories from beer friends about the breweries & festivals they visited in different parts of Michigan and my list grows longer of where I need to visit. You see Michigan is fifth in the nation in the number of breweries, microbreweries and brewpubs.

Michigan is home to Grand Rapids in addition to more beer centric communities such as Kalamazoo, Ann Arbor, Traverse City, Detroit and Ypsilanti.

I am happy to share a guest post below, Michigan Brew Tour, from Grand Rapids Party Bus about a few of many Michigan breweries as well they offer a variety of services from limos to party busses (check out their Audi Q7 Stretch Limo it's slick!) to get you and your group around Michigan safely while enjoying the plentiful beer Michigan has to offer.

Hmmm sounds like it's time for another road trip....

As far as food goes, there are many vegan choices for food, notably a pizza option that's really "cheesy"!
