Walking Man in Stevenson, WA is a good example of a microbrewery.
Thanks for the explanation. We have been wondering about that. There is a brewery in Webberville and one in Kalamazoo that would probably qualify as microbreweries since they seem to have a presence only in Southern Lower Michigan.

We sheep enjoy beer too but we never get to have any
