Almost every year, around April or March, there are a few days where the sky clears up and you can finally feel the sun on your face after months of dreary winter. The instinct of many people in this state is to find the closest open patio that serves beer on tap and get there as soon as possible. The warm weather instinctively makes us feel like drinking, maybe that has something to do with our high tolerance and the amazing craft beer Michigan has to offer?\nHey, at least the overwhelming amount of brews produced here gives you an excuse to sample several before you make a decision.\nThis affinity for trying every beer out there has some consequences when it comes to our drinking habits.\nAccording to a survey done by alcohol.org, Michiganders have the highest beer tolerance in the country.\nOn average, it takes us over four beers to start feeling drunk.\nWe also have some of the fewest rates of lightweights of any state. Only 12% of Michigan responders said that they felt drunk after drinking one beer with a 4.5% alcohol content.\nWe love beer so much that we even mark the season change by when certain breweries release our favorites.\nView this post on Instagram Glory days #birthdayweek #forever29 #oberon #dafuq #dontatme #annarbor #puremichigan A post shared by Rachel Elizabeth (@mlledusseau) on Apr 25, 2019 at 4:39pm PDT\nWhen Bell's Brewery starts shipping out Oberon, you know that the season of day drinking on the patio has officially started.\nView this post on Instagram #beermakesushappy #its12oclocksomewhere #justkiddingits12oclockhere @batchbrewing A post shared by amanda (@anastasiaprescott) on Mar 25, 2019 at 10:55am PDT\nWe have 4.5 craft breweries for every 100,000 residents of legal drinking age.\nThat might explain why everyone you graduated college with cares so much about what quirky name dons the beer they brought to your party.\nMake sure to always drink responsibly, but don't beat yourself up about wanting to enjoy all these Michigan beers. It's hard not to.\nView this post on Instagram Hello World, Where have I been? Minding my business, drinking water and working on me. I did not participate in #soberoctober I just decided that documenting everything I do isn’t conducive to my mental health. Some days you wake up and it’s not easy to get going. You’re tired, AND THATS OK! So I’m treating myself to a few days in the D. Thank you to those who reached out wondering what’s been going on. ———— @easternmarketbrewing ˢᴺᴼᵂᶠᴸᴬᴷᴱ ˢᵀᴼᵁᵀ ᴹᴬᴿᴷᴱᵀ ᴰᴬᵞ ᴵᴾᴬ ᶠᴵᴺᴬᴸ ᴴᴬᴿᵛᴱˢᵀ ᴴᴼᴿᵀᴼᴺ ᴴᴬˢ ᴬ ˢᴱᶜᴿᴱᵀ ˢᵀᴿᴬᵂᴮᴱᴿᴿᵞ ᴹᴵᴸᴷˢᴴᴬᴷᴱ ᴵᴾᴬ (2019) ᴮᴸᴬᶜᴷᴮᴱᴿᴿᵞ ˢᴷᴼᶜᴷ ᵀᴬᴿᵀ ᴰᴱᴱˢ ᴮᴱᴱˢ ᴷᴺᴱᴱˢ ᴴᴼᴹᴱ ᶜᴼᵁᴿᵀ A post shared by 🅣🅗🅔 🅑🅔🅔🅡 🅑🅘🅝🅖🅔🅡 (@thebeerbinger) on Nov 6, 2019 at 11:11am PST\nIf you're looking for some cool bars to test out your tolerance, check out Green Dot Stables, where you can get your beer for cheap along with a ton of sliders to choose from.
