(LANSING, Mich) – Legislators in Lansing have recently declared July as “Michigan Beer Month” with the introduction of House Resolution No. 289 and Senate Resolution No. 131, noting the brewing industry’s long-standing history, impact on both the tourism and agricultural interests and the ongoing contributions to the overall economy of the state.

According to Scott Graham, Executive Director of the Michigan Brewers Guild:

“We recognize the contributions that Michigan craft brewers and breweries have made to the state’s communities, economy, and history,” states the proclamations, “and be it further resolved that we commend Michigan breweries for providing jobs, improving the balance of trade, supporting Michigan agriculture, and educating residents about the history and culture of beer while promoting the responsible consumption of beer as a beverage of moderation.”

Formed in 1997, the Michigan Brewers Guild held its first festival in July 1998. Today, it hosts five festivalsdedicated exclusively to Michigan beer produced by its nearly 300 member breweries (a number that increases on a monthly basis). Within the state, and beyond, Michigan is referred to as “The Great Beer State.”
