Thought this was a cool story from the Webberville based Michigan Brewing Company.

A brewer headquartered southeast of Lansing is getting a tax credit to produce a new line of beer for Kid Rock.

The tax credit for the Webberville-based Michigan Brewing Company was approved by the Michigan Economic Growth Authority. It’s valued at $722,957. The company plans to invest $7 million in the project, which is expected to create about 400 jobs in the state. 

The new line of beer should debut in the spring.  No style, name, or pricing has been decided yet.
