Drink up, Michiganders, we've got something to celebrate.  According to a recent study done by Simple Thrifty Living, Michigan has the 5th lowest beer prices in the country.

The study was previously conducted in 2017 and at that time, Michigan actually had the lowest average beer prices in the country.  But in the last 2 years, we lost that title to Illinois and are now in 5th place overall.
