If there's one thing that can bring us together, it's beer. Unless you're not a beer drinker, then this probably isn't for you. A West Michigan brewery, Big Lake Brewing has gone above and beyond throughout the pandemic. They've released several special beers over the months to honor essential workers. One of their beers is called "Farmer-Strong." It was,

"Brewed in honor of all the Michigan farmers helping keep food on our shelves."

That's not all they've done, they've been donating thousands of dollars, one beer at a time. At the beginning of the pandemic, they brewed a beer called "We're In This Together", to show support for local Michigan businesses. And they continue to donate to different local charities every month to support essential workers. In August, they donated $2,500 to Holland Hospital. They raised that money through sales of their IPA "Healthcare Heroes." Here's the reason Big Lake created their IPA,

"This one was brewed for those on the front line during the Pandemic. We happily brewed this, and were able to donate meals, and drinks to our friends at a few local hospitals."

They have so many different beers to chooses from, like "Swing Juice" and "Cotton Candy Haze". They even have an MSU beer you can enjoy on game day! It's a New England IPA.

I'm not going to lie, I'm considering driving to Holland to go get their holiday stout pack for a friend of mine for Christmas. Is it worth the drive? I don't know, I guess we'll find out!
