Where Can I Find: Craft Breweries


As part of the Newcomers Issue, City Pulse compiled several lists under the title “Where Can I Find…” These lists are meant as a brief guide for people unfamiliar with Lansing.

Lansing is home to many breweries. Some are geared for high speed can production while others prefer to keep beer in wood barrels until ready to serve. The Lansing beer culture can be traced to the Lansing Brewing Co. in 1897. The company crafted an amber cream ale that was popular with blue-collar workers and statesmen alike. The tradition of crafting great beers continues and is growing to this day.

Bringing Lansing’s first brewery back from the dead in 2015, the stadium district’s Lansing Brewing Co. serves food along with 12 of its brews on tap.
