This summer, Short’s Brewing Co. is celebrating its home state by packaging a beer made almost entirely with ingredients from Michigan.
The beer is Michigantuan, a 7 percent ABV double IPA brewed with Michigan grown hops and barley, along with cherry concentrate from King Orchards in Central Lake, Mich. The IPA was first released as a draft-only option in 2015.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Michigantuan will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles. In addition, Short’s 2017 Release Calander indicates that Michigantuan will ship to retailers in June.
