William Rapai: Brewed in Michigan
Thursday, March 22nd @ 7:00 p.m.
Location: The Commons of Fremont (Brew Works)

William Rapai Brewed in Michigan

There are now more than 300 breweries in Michigan. William Rapai, author of Brewed in Michigan, toured the state for 18 months talking with brewers and brewery patrons about what makes Michigan craft beer special. The author argues that Michigan craft beer is brewed by individuals who have a passion for excellence and have created a culture that values quality over quantity and measures tradition and innovation in equal parts.

Rapai’s personal experience with craft beer parallels the growth in Michigan’s craft beer industry. His early experiences with Michigan craft beer left him with a bad taste in his mouth, but his curiosity brought him back and he's now willing to try any new beer—as long as it comes from his home state.

William Rapai is a former newspaper editor who has worked for the Detroit Free Press and The Boston Globe. He lives in Grosse Pointe. This event is co-hosted by The Commons of Fremont (Brew Works).
