New Beer Magazine Brewed Locally

New Beer Magazine Brewed Locally

By Patrick Sullivan

Two decades ago, Rick Coates and Scott Graham helped launch Gaylord’s Big Buck Brewery, where Graham worked as a brewer and Coates served as a consultant. Now, 20 years later, they're together again. Graham is now executive director of the Michigan Brewers Guild, a nonprofit that promotes the state’s craft beer industry; Coates has been named editor of MiBrew, the Guild’s Traverse City-based quarterly magazine.

MiBrew came along just in time to celebrate the Guild’s 20th anniversary, and Coates and Graham hope it will increase the number of the group’s members, called “enthusiasts.” There are currently some 2,000 enthusiasts, people who are serious connoisseurs of craft beer.

“I think that there are a lot of people out there that have some sort of emotional attachment to the craft beer industry,” Graham says. “People love to have stories about beer and breweries and that’s nothing new, but I think craft beer is something that connects with people.” more
