  1. I’ve done all but one of these activities so I must be a Michigander. 😉 I love the local beer year round, but it’s nice to sit on a patio at a brewery to sip their saisons, session beers, and fruity beers on a warm summer evening. My favorite though is going Up North, which typically encompasses most of this list!
