‘Big Gretch’ Beer Sells Out In Minutes
A new beer was released on Monday, called "Big Gretch: The Return", and it sold out same day. The Rake Beer Project in Muskegon released a sour saison beer, to follow up their 'Big Gretch' seltzer, and it sold out in nine minutes.
The beer was created to support Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the decisions she's had to make during the COVID-19 pandemic. The owner of the brewery Josh Rake was overwhelmed by the turn out saying,
“All 40 cases were gone in 9 minutes. (It’s) the largest release we have ever done. It is truly amazing to see the support that people are putting behind small business at this time and we encourage folks to flock to their other favorite local small businesses the way they did to us yesterday.”
Rake does plan on making another batch that will be released early next year.
If you're interested in visiting Rake Beer Project and trying out their beers, they're located at 794 Pine St in Muskegon. You can also order online if you don't feel like making the drive.
Rake Beer Project isn't the only brewery in Michigan giving back. There's several breweries helping out their local communities. Big Lake Brewing in Holland has created several beers in order to help small businesses and essential workers. North Peak Brewing Company in Traverse City will be releasing a beer in 2021 for International Women's Day and wants you to design the photo!
