For its next trick, a Michigan brewery is working with the tourism bureau
The Pure Michigan campaign from the state tourism bureau has been all about stunts this year. In April, the agency released an album with sounds from 10 Michigan state parks. Now, the group is working with Short’s Brewing Company on the release of a new collaboration fall beer with Travel Michigan called the Pure Michigan Autumn IPA. The beer uses Michigan hops and malt as well as yeast from a supplier in the Upper Peninsula, per a release. Pure Michigan beer is scheduled for release at Short’s on October 4 followed by a wider release on October 6 in stores.
