The Tin Can has grown by leaps and bounds in the Lansing area. This is largely due to the fact that many of the micro breweries have started canning their beers. Beverage/ Marketing Manager Stacey Fedewa had this to say, “We have always tried to support the local economy by featuring local products such as our faygo bombs. (Faygo bomb = Flavored Vodkas mixed with Faygo pop made in MI) As far as beers we have carried Keweenaw Brewing company since day one. They were the only micro brew from Michigan to can their product. Now we feature a variety of micro brews from: Bell's Brewery, Blackrock's Brewery, Brewery Vivant, Frankenmuth Brewing Co., Keweenaw Brewing Co., Vander Mill Cider, Uncle John's Cider, Right Brain Brewery, Griffin Claw Brewing Co., Atwater Brewery, and many more.” All of those are great choices in a state filled with excellent craft beer.

Soon residents of Lansing will not have to drive all the way to Dexter to experience the “Taste It. Love It. Tote It,” attitude of The Beer Grotto. “This is such a neat concept, really a different way of selling and drinking wine and beer,” said Short. “We have what we call tasting pods, little island counters where people can wander through the store, taste samples, and engage with our staff if that’s what they want, or they can use the iPads we’ve set up to scroll through the full tasting notes for the beers and wines we have, constantly updated in real time.”

Sleepwalker Spirits and Ale is the brain child of Matt Jason and Jeremy Sprague, local Lansing residents who saw the need for a local brewery and spirits distillery. Sleepwalker derives its name from the Japanese term for sleepwalker, muyubyo-sha, where you are invited to turn off the busy part of your day and enjoy a space to “dream.play.” This is exactly what Sleepwalker embodies.

Cedar Springs Brewing company will be open early next year in Cedar Springs, Mi with a very German influenced menu and brew style. “We’ll be relatively German-centric, that’s my background and passion, and it’s something not many of the craft brewers are really focusing on. A lot of places dabble with the German stuff, but I definitely have some ideas I want to do that nobody is really doing.” said, Ringler, a German trained brewer and investment adviser with degrees in history and brewing science. He worked briefly for Atwater Brewing and the now closed Grand Rapids Brewing Co. and wants to get back into brewing.
