2018 WDET Michigan Beer Bracket: Nominate Your Favorite Beer

Which of these beloved Michigan brews will make it to the championship round? WDET listeners like you will decide.


Last year, Michigan’s beer economy was worth $10.5-billion and created over 30,000 jobs for the Mitten State.

That means there’s lots of Michigan beer to choose from — so which one is the best?

The 2018 WDET Michigan Beer Bracket is here to answer that question with your help.

Here’s how it works:

  • Nominate your favorite Michigan beer using the form below or by clicking right here.
  • We’re nominating individual beers from Michigan breweries, so if it’s made in the state of Michigan — it counts!
  • Beers with the most nominations will advance to the top 32 in the 2018 WDET Michigan Beer Bracket on Wednesday, October 10th before we crown a champion at the end of the month.

Also worth mentioning:

  • Base your nomination on the quality of the brew from the taste, flavor and even design of the label.
  • We’re using the honor system here, so please don’t game the system & nominate your favorite beer multiple times — let the voice of the people be heard!
