Lakeshore Brewers Guild

The Lakeshore Brewers Guild, host of Burning Foot Festival, promotes the local craft beer industry and the lakeshore’s natural beauty. As a supplement to the Michigan Brewers Guild, the Lakeshore Brewers Guild is focused on counties that touch Lake Michigan. The states included are Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Throughout these counties, the guild is working with its members to build the “Lakeshore Ale Trail,” a region rich in craft breweries, natural beauty, and the economic benefits that flow from successful locally-owned and oriented businesses. Joint advertising and cooperative support allow guild members to grow while also establishing the region as a “beer tourism” hotspot. Through these collaborative efforts, the Lakeshore Brewers Guild is becoming a driving force in supporting its members and local economies. 

Michigan Craft Distillers Association

The Michigan Craft Distillers Association was formed in 2014 to organize the growing number of small-batch spirit producers in the state. Today, the nonprofit organization boasts more than two dozen craft distillery members and four distilleries “in planning” that are scheduled to open within the next year. That number increases on a regular basis, along with other craft beverage sectors.

Michigan cider Association

The Michigan Cider Association (MCA) exists to elevate and grow the Michigan cider industry by uniting cider makers and apple growers and connecting hard cider enthusiasts and soon-to-be fans with Michigan ciders that they’ll love! They work to grow exposure to cider culture, connect with communities, and empower excellence in the industry.

Michigan Wine Collective

The Michigan Wine Collaborative (MWC) is non-profit organization with the following mission: To enhance the sustainability and profitability of the Michigan wine industry by supporting wineries, growers and other businesses and individuals connected to the industry – today and for future generations. In 2016 when the Michigan wine industry’s state organization, the Michigan Grape and Wine Industry Council, began transitioning to the Michigan Craft Beverage Council, the wine industry created the Michigan Wine Collaborative (MWC). MWC was created to supplement losses the industry would experience in the Council’s absence. MWC is made up of a wide variety of wine professionals and enthusiasts from all sectors of the wine industry. Our members include wineries, growers, suppliers & vendors, researchers & educators, government officials, retailers, hospitality, media, and MORE! We are big into the idea that MI wine is for everyone and there is room for everyone. Let’s grow the industry together.
