This week, Governor Whitmer and her delegation traveled to the U.P. to meet with local government and elected officials along with leaders from several area businesses. It's part of her $1 billion plan to jumpstart Michigan’s economy by investing in businesses, workers, and organizations across our state.

While visiting the UP, Whitmer stopped at a local brewery to serve a cold one. The Governor said,

"Best way to wrap up my first day of my UP jobs tour supporting our small businesses. Cheers."

a cryptid gave the governor some advice on her pour,

"I actually recommend not holding onto the spout. it will cause the head to foam too much."

AJ praised,

"That is one damn fine  pour G."

"Nice pour, Governor!"

Angela Denny noticed that Whitmer was wearing a Stormy Kromer mask.

rkoby pleaded,

"Wait. I wanna have a beer with Big Gretch. I promise I'll wear a mask. Please?"

Jai Ferrick said,

"As a Michigander and a bar tender-well poured, Big Gretch."

Voydead was feeling confident and requested,

"I will personally re pave all the roads for one date."

Last time we checked, the Governor is still married.
