If you’re a fan of fresh and unique, regional craft beers then you’re going to love the Lansing-area beer scene. The number and variety of Lansing breweries is enough to excite any beer lover and the location of our Lansing-area inn makes visiting them a snap!
The craft beer explosion that washed over the country has seen beer ascending to a position once inhabited primarily by wine. Beer tourism, beer tastings, brewery tours, and even beer collecting and trading have exploded.
Not only is trying new beers fun and exciting, doing so gives you a real taste of a region. Not just through the beer but also through the people you meet and the sights you see.
Our Eaton Rapids inn, restaurant, and pub is less than a half-hour’s drive from Lansing. This puts all the best of the city at your fingertips while providing you with a quiet and comfortable retreat to return to.
So come along with me as we highlight some of the top Lansing breweries!
