Michigan Brown Ale Face-Off

Written by Joe Boomgaard | Friday, 24 October 2014 13:58 |

The lowly brown ale never receives the love or fervent adulations that many other popular beer styles get. But that doesn’t mean that craft beer lovers should pass over brown ales.

Artful Exploration of the Practical MindA cultural study of the Midwest reveals an interesting trajectory. InThe Middle West: Its Meaning in American Culture, geographer James R. Shortridge notes around the turn of the last century, the Midwest enjoyed a prosperous time and was revered in the national consciousness as the most “American” part of the nation.
