And finally for #NationalBeerDay I will share my FAVORITE Brewery in Southwestern Michigan.  Arclight Brewing Company in Watervliet, Michigan.

‘Celebrate with 8’ for National Beer Day | Bottom Left of the Mitten

While craft beer is synonymous with amazing sandwiches & pub chips at this brewery you have to either bring your own food, order from local restaurants or they offer a food truck occasionally.  I’m still okay with that.  My husband and I went after visiting his friend in the area on a Saturday night.  The place was not crowded but busy.  Casual picnic tables, kids running around (they also handcraft their own sodas) or playing board games, funky music. They even had a movie projecting up on the back wall.  We went in the middle of Winter and I cannot wait to get back there to sit on the patio.  What I immediately thought when I left was….the perfect setting with the perfect beer.

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.~Benjamin Franklin. Celebrate.
