“Is any resource more precious than freshwater? We don’t think so. As brewers and Michigan business owners, we thoroughly recognize the value of freshwater. Environmental threats against the freshwater ecosystem where we live and work, are also threats against our very existence and livelihood. Protecting the Great Lakes is our responsibility. Let’s show the world how our communities and businesses can work together to protect Michigan’s freshwater.” – Rick Schmitt and Brian Confer, Owners of Stormcloud Brewing Company
