Beer is About a Billion Dollar Industry for Michigan
When is the last time you cracked open a Michigan made brew? We can tell you this, it's good for the economy.
A recent study from Michigan State University estimates beer to be about a billion dollar industry for Michigan. In Lansing alone, the industry contributed an estimated $14.5 million to the local economy in 2016.
According to Steve Miller, one of the study's co-authors and director of the Center for Economic Analysis at MSU, for beer in general, I'm cautiously optimistic that the industry will stay strong. We're a pretty big beer state.
The study found that the beer industry in Michigan contributed nearly $1 billion and 9,738 jobs in total aggregate economic contributions in 2016. Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
