We are the proud home of the Lager Revolution – the only microbrewery in Michigan that specializes in making lagers for everyone. What does this mean? It means that from light to dark, every beer we brew is designed to be a beer you can love.
Us, the Short Version
In Michigan, we have a knack for being creative in less-than-ideal situations. Take Wolverine State Brewing Co., for example. Matt Roy and Trevor Thrall, WSBC’s founders, took a bad snowstorm, a Jeep, and a northbound route on I-75 and turned it into Michigan’s only lager-focused microbrewery.
The snowstorm delayed their trip for several hours, and, to kill the time, they started talking about the huge amount of beer they had stuffed in their cooler for their guys’ weekend. They had microbrews from all over Michigan, imports from Europe, St. Louis, and Milwaukee…
But, as they talked, they realized something was missing: a regular Michigan beer — a kickass, easily-approachable beer that all Michiganders could rejoice over. They spent the remaining hours wishing for such a thing to exist before realizing that they could either keep complaining, or they could do it themselves. And that’s how the idea for Wolverine Premium Lager, our flagship brew, was born.
A few years and a few additions later, we’re operating as the only all-lager microbrewery in the state of Michigan. We’re constantly pushing the envelope with what a lager can do; we’re experimenting with combined cultures, high-gravity lagers, and ingredients like pumpkin and coffee. Our Brewmaster, Oliver, along with brewer Karl and cellarman Rick, spend every day fanatically creating, caring for, and bottling each and every lager. We hope you love drinking it as much as we love making it!
