We're blessed in West Michigan with some fine trails.  You know, trails for hiking, biking, walking, running, something the whole family can enjoy.

But, now, here is something all ADULTS can enjoy, a Wine & Beer Trail.  Let me say that again, a Wine & Beer Trail.  If you are looking for a new way to quench your thirst, you may want to check out the newly launched, West Michigan Wine And Beer Trail.

We in Michigan have a long history of producing beer and wine and now, for the first time, in West Michigan, people can wet their whistles on this unique trail.

This 'unique' trail features ten wineries, 12 breweries and three cider mills. Each location offers its own unique atmosphere.

We've never had a comprehensive Wine & Beer trail along this portion of the lakeshore.  We're all familiar with northern Michigan and the wonderful wine tours there, but not here.  The organizers have partnered with a wide variety of wineries, breweries and cider mills, plus hotels, restaurants, and local attractions. This trail extends from South Haven to Ludington and inland to Grand Rapids.

One of the exciting things about this trail is the addition of breweries, since most wine trails do not include them.  However, Michigan has a fabulous beer industry, so it makes perfect sense to add them.
