American Craft Beer Week is drawing to a close, but the opportunity to sample some Michigan-made brews will continue long after the week-long celebration ends.
Michigan Brewers Guild Executive Director Scott Graham says Michigan ranks fifth in the nation in number of breweries, and while the amount of beer sold in Michigan that's MADE in Michigan stands at under five percent, there's no reason that number couldn't top 20 percent in the future.
If you missed American Craft Beer Week, don't fret. July is Michigan Craft Beer Month, and Ypsi-Arbor Beer Week is August 1-9.
Ypsilanti's Corner Brewery is now Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery.
Arbor Brewing Company co-owner Renee Greff says the name change came about out of concerns raised by the former Corner Brewery's general manager that the business wasn't getting the benefit of the Arbor Brewing Company brand.
Greff says not everyone knows that Arbor Brewing Company's beer is made at the Ypsilanti location.
She says new logos were designed, and word of the name change was spread through the Arbor Brewing Company blog and Facebook page.
