HARVEY — Michigan is known for many things: being the Mitten State, the Great Lakes State, and even having a great selection of craft beers. Yoopers will get a chance to try some Michigan beer this weekend.

Michigan Made in Harvey will be hosting Beards Brewery from Charlevoix this Saturday to help them sample some of their beers. Along with some of the unique names of the brews, comes a unique taste Yoopers can discover.

“They’re going to sample three of their standards, plus this new limited release that they’ve just put out, called the Silent Planet,” said manager Holly Smith.

Being a local store, Michigan Made sticks by the local theme for selling beer.

“We continue to see these new breweries…they evolve, similar to the Marquette beers like Blackrocks and Ore Dock, who we support as well. And this is the same thing that this company does, they’re a Michigan–based company and Michigan is becoming the great beer state where there’s a lot of great beer that’s coming out here,” said Smith.

The sampling will be from 4:00–7:00 P.M. at the store in Harvey. Beards will do the same in Michigan Made’s Houghton location on December 15th.
