Snow-covered slopes and craft beer go together like peanut butter and jelly…well, better actually. The jolly duo is the inspiration behind many stories of winter merrymaking and has a reputation for exceptional quality and a smooth finish.
After you’ve conquered the slopes, check out these Northern Michigan microbreweries near your favorite ski town.
Known for their flagship flavors like Huma Lupa Licious and Space Rock along with their crazy specialties, this brewery has a flavor for every palate. Plus there’s a free Shanty Creek shuttle (read: designated driver!), so Schuss skiers can easily enjoy a Short’s pint après ski.
This brewery doesn’t just have great grub and brews, it also carries an exclusive line of bath and body products, furniture, home decor, and a whole lot more. It’s your one-stop spot!
Harbor Springs may not have its own brewery, but its neighbor Petoskey does. You honestly can’t go wrong with these three.
Located in the Clock Tower Lodge, you don’t have to leave the resort to wind down with good pizza and cold drinks.
