Don't drink the water in Flint. :lol:

Sorry, I'm not much use for that side of Michigan, other than to point out that Michigan's wine country mostly runs up the east shore of Lake Michigan, in the lake-effect snow region. (Heavy blanket of snow keeps grapevines from freezing dead.)

Also ... funny all this stuff is alcohol-related ... Bell's brewery is around there. Kalamazoo? As I'm sure you know, we're in their distribution region, and I'm pretty fond of some of their beers. Oberon and Two-Hearted Ale in particular.

Yeah, it is a beer driven trip. Bell's, Founder's, Vivant, New Holland, and Arcadia are all in the area.
