We’re entering an odd stretch for the the seasonal craft beer drinker. Winter warmers are being phased out as we get further and further from Christmas, and flirtations with temperatures above freezing – even if for a day or two – leave us longing for something beyond a porter or a stout.
Enter this mixed six pack of Michigan-brewed craft beer compliments of Ludington Beverage, a 4th generation 100 percent veteran-owned beer distributor. Based in Ludington, they’ve served West Michigan since 1933, so they know a thing or two.
There’s a little something for everyone in this lineup, including hazy IPAs, an ale that mirrors a lunchbox staple and two beers that haven’t yet been released (Mountain Town Lazy River & Stormcloud Rainmaker). Enjoy!
