Growth and expansion continue to be central themes for Michigan breweries. Michigan is host to more than 100 licensed breweries, the 5th highest in the nation - and northern Michigan is no exception to that growth.

Beyond the incredible topography and award-winning wineries, northern Michigan’s craft brewery scene has begun to draw national recognition. Traverse City recently made the cover of Draft Magazine, featured as one of three emerging beer towns in America. One of the key reasons northern Michigan is ripe for growth in its micro-brewing industry is due to its location on the 45th parallel. The climate is ideal for growing hops, a key ingredient in beer. In 2007, hops were planted in Michigan on a commercial scale for the first time since the late 1800s. Since then, the number of farms and acreage has grown, especially in Leelanau and Grand Traverse County.
