Craft beer has become a major industry in Michigan, but it's been mostly run by white males.  A new brewery opening in Ypsilanti's Depot Town seeks to change that.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Brianna Kelly sit down with Alex Merz, Brian Jones-Chance, and Patrick Echlin, co-founders of 734 Brewing Company, which opens for business on June 2.
