The Michigan Brewers Guild’s purpose is to promote and protect the craft beer industry in Michigan and a core part of our mission is to monitor and assure a healthy brewing industry. A consistent and reliable supply of quality raw materials is fundamental to the success of our brewing industry and water is the single largest raw material used by every brewery in the state.
Michigan breweries have a strategic advantage by operating in a region with an abundant supply of clean, fresh water and breweries rely on that water to succeed now and in the future. Any disruption in the supply of clean water would be devastating to our thriving brewing industry and it is critical that we preserve and protect this valuable natural resource. The Michigan Brewers Guild is opposed to any policy, industry or infrastructure that threatens the security of the water supply in our state.
