Wolverine Brewing Company Plan
No worries, says marketing director E.T. Crowe, speaking for her three partners, Matt Roy, Trevor Thrall, and Oliver Roberts. "Our lease supersedes a sale, meaning whomever buys it must take us on as tenants at our agreed-upon terms."
Crowe says the tap room is on schedule to open sometime around Memorial Day in "the old scratch-and-dent room. Everyone's been in there at one time or another looking for a deal." With a microbrewer's license, says Crowe, "I could operate a full-on restaurant if I wanted to. I do not want to. There are plenty of folks in town who can do a great job of that already." The tap room will be more like a bar, featuring Wolverine Premium Lager--already available in most local groceries and liquor stores--and dry snacks like pretzels and chips. By winter brewmaster Roberts hopes to add a dark lager and a light (low-calorie) beer.
