The Michigan Brewers Guild is celebrating twenty-five years of promoting and protecting Michigan’s brewing industry. In October of 1997 thirty or so brewing professionals met to discuss what it could look like if instead of competing against each other, they chose to work to-gether to create a rich brewing community that celebrated camaraderie as a key ingredient in great beer. Soon after, the Michigan Brewers Guild was formed. Now, almost twenty-five years later, we are immensely proud and grateful to have witnessed the remarkable growth and excitement created by our breweries of the Great Beer State. As a member-based trade association, we represent around three-hun-dred breweries across the state, and we’re thrilled to celebrate our twenty fifth anniversary.

We have long celebrated the camaraderie of our common interest and love of great beer, something that we share with beer lovers around the world, not to mention the many other passionate people who make spirits, wine and food. We have inadvertently forged a bond through the love of beer, and we are committed to further our connection and appreciation, by sharing and encouraging others to do the same.

As part of our 25th Anniversary, we’d love to hear from you and share your voice with the people who work in our breweries and the customers who love them. We’re inviting our friends around the world to give a shout out to the Michigan Brewers Guild’s 25th anniversary and share a little about when and how you connected with us, and what you love or learned about our community.

Whether you share in the form of a video, a short story, or an audio clip, we’d like to include your thoughts in our anniversary efforts, and here’s how: 

Create and upload one of the following:

  • A video, sixty seconds or less (.mov, .mp4)
  • A written story (.doc or .pdf)
  • A photo (.jpg, .png, .pdf, .tiff)
  • An audio file (.mp3, .wav)

And share some or all of the following:

  • Your name, title, and affiliation (company, city, etc.)
  • When did your world intersect with Michigan breweries?
  • What do you appreciate about the Michigan brewing community?

Raise a glass and wish the people and the breweries of the Michigan Brewers Guild a happy twenty-fifth anniversary!

Just like in brewing, feel free to have fun and be creative. Whether it’s straightforward and heartfelt like a crisp pilsner, or adventur-ous and complex like a fruited sour aged in bourbon barrels, we’re sure our members and their fans will love to hear your story.

Production Tips:

While professional videographers are always welcome, it is not a necessity. We love the candid and personal captures, which can be done on a good phone. Consider finding a well-lit, relatively quiet area and shoot in “landscape” mode with your camera or phone horizontal. Props for a content-rich location like your office, your favorite brewery, the steps of city hall, or the site designated for your town’s next brewery and speak from the heart.

With all photo and video files, send the highest resolution possible, up to 1080 p.

We’ll be accepting files throughout 2022, but we encourage you to submit your story by April 1st, 2022.

Please wait while we process this update.
