WARREN — Ten years ago, there weren’t many options for beer lovers in Michigan.
Or as Rex Halfpenny of Michigan Beer Guide put it, “It was a desert.”
Among the microbreweries and brewpubs quenching that thirst since then is Dragonmead in Warren, which makes more than 40 beers–all available on tap–in a brewery smaller than even most microbreweries. When the owners were building their brew house, they would get laughed at when trying to order three big tanks for making beer. Even the smallest brewers have ten tanks.
