“When I started the Lake Charlevoix Brewing Company, it was the Great Lakes that made it all possible. We draw our water from the Charlevoix municipal system, sourced directly from Lake Michigan. Water of the highest quality is what makes it possible for us to succeed and employ 65 people, while helping build the economic base for Charlevoix and the surrounding area.” —Richard Bergmann, owner, Lake Charlevoix Brewing Co.
