These MI Beers are Perfect For Fall

By: Katie Goncalves | October 17, 2022

The fall beer season is well underway as we’ve all transferred the citrus notes of summer for pumpkin, spices, and stouts. There are so many incredible Michigan breweries and we are fortunate to have many of them right in our backyard in Metro Detroit. Fall is a great opportunity to try some new breweries and check out what they are creating for the season. After all, the fall in Michigan doesn’t last forever so you have to enjoy every bit of it while it’s here. Of course, many of our favorite beer stops offer a rendition of Oktoberfest for the season, but we have our sights set on something unique.
