Seasonal Pure Michigan Beer

“Brewed in partnership with Pure Michigan as an homage to the splendor surrounding us, Pure Michigan IPA is made entirely with ingredients grown on Michigan farms. This is a quintessential IPA with balanced hop bitterness and malty, fruited sweetness. Like pouring all the best parts of the Michigan outdoors into a glass and imbibing thanks to malt from Empire Malting Co, Great Lakes Malting Company and Valley View Farms, and hops from MI Local Hops and Hop Alliance. Cheers to Pure Michigan!” ~ Short’s Brewing Company

Find it locally at the Country Style Marketplace in Fort Gratiot, Wolverine Market, Spirits Shoppe and Ryan’s Party Store in Port Huron or Neiman’s in St. Clair!
