Craft alcohol goes mainstream in Metro Detroit

Michigan is cementing its reputation as the Great Beer State but Metro Detroit is expanding that reputation with growing companies that make vodka and meade. Ferndale-based B. Nektar Meadery and Valentine Vodka are expanding their distribution across the U.S. Arbor Brewing Company (from Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti) is spreading its brand to India and craft brewing continues to grow exponentially. Cheers!
