Winter beers of Michigan link

Promote Michigan posted a run-down of good bets to feel warm and toasty inside. There are plenty to add to this list, and I’d love suggestions!

To begin, I’ll have to add Smuggler’s Hazelnut Stout from the Hideout in Grand Rapids. So as not to reinvent the wheel, I’ll quote my rundown from a Beer Guide of yesteryear: “The 5.5% ABV Smuggler’s Hazelnut Stout is a dark, opaque brew with a strong hazelnut flavor accentuated by coffee and cream that finishes clean. [Brewer] Ken [McPhail] believes in keeping things local: this stout is brewed with Hazelnut Crème coffee beans from the Schuil Coffee Company in Grand Rapids.”

What are your favorite Michigan brews, perfect for a chilly winter evening?

  1. I like Sundog, an amber ale, from New Holland Brewing Company. It does capture “the copper glow of a Lake Michigan sunset.” That’s why I’m here.
