I did this just about a year ago, but a lot has changed.  Here we go.

From the Coming Soon or In Progress breweries list:

Brewery Terra Firma – Traverse City – NW – NOW OPEN

Beggars Brewing – Traverse City – NW – Last November they released their first beer.  Their beer is available in bars “up north” but I do not believe their tap room is open yet.

Big Lake Brewing – Holland – SW – OPENED July 5, 2013

Biggdogg Brewery – Kalamazoo – SW – NOW OPEN

Bravo Zulu Brewing – Traverse City – NW – NOW OPEN

Constantine Brewing Co. – Constantine – SW – Still under construction.

DirtBag Brewing – Gobles – SW – This MLive article says they hope to be open by Spring 2014

Elk Brewing – Grand Rapids – SW – Still in progress.  They hope to be open in 2014.

HopCat – East Lansing – SW – NOW OPEN

Lansing Brewing Company – Lansing – SW – Someone by open this eventually but it won’t be Sellers.

Latitude 42 – Portage – SW – NOW OPEN

Old Mill Brewpub and Grill – Plainwell – SW – NOW BREWING

Osgood Brewing – Grandville – SW – NOW OPEN

Bifferhous Brewing Company – Jackson – SE – JUST OPENED

Brewery Becker – Brighton – SE – Still in progress.

Cotton Brewing Company – Adrian – SE – Still in progress.  “Update December 22nd: Our application to the Michigan Liquor Control Commission has been approved!
We are still awaiting Federal permits and will be filling growlers shortly.”

Falling Down Beer Company – Warren – SE – NOW OPEN

Griffin Claw Brewing Company – Birmingham – SE – NOW OPEN

Malty Dog Brewery – Southfield – SE – Looks like they opened/were open but then had to close – maybe due to trademark issues.  They may reopen or just distribute.


That’s a pretty good open rate.  Now I have to get to work to discover everything that’s flown under my radar for the last 8 months.
