Today is a day of celebration, as Bell’s Brewing out of Kalamazoo has dubbed March 21 Oberon Release Day 2016! Many await the seasonal brew’s annual release, as it represents a sense of spring with its citrus taste. While we are in full support of all Michigan businesses, we want to point out that there are Northern Michigan beers made with orange zests, too!
Here’s a list of a few Northern Michigan breweries and suds that scream spring with fresh orange flavors.
229 Lake Ave. | Traverse City
Made with coriander and orange peel, this Belgian Witbier is light and refreshing.
658 S West Bay Shore Drive | Suttons Bay
Looking for a blend of grapefruit and orange flavors to dominate your palate? Here you go!

Local wildflower honey and blood orange zest are mixed together with a blood orange puree for this smooth and slightly sweet wheat beer.
121 N. Bridge | Bellaire
