become immune to the horrific taste of much of
many of America's most popular beers.
To the delight of many students, a new trend in
the beer industry is sweeping Ann Arbor, as well as
the nation at large - microbrewed beer. Students
are beginning to relish the flavor of beer with char-
acter, rather than diluting themselves with cheap
keg beer, pretending that they like it.
The quality and variety of beer in America
rivaled some of the greatest brewing nations in
Europe before Prohibition began in 1920.
Unfortunately, few breweries survived the national
ban on alcohol and Americans were left with less
expensive beer that appealed to the largest masses.
Then, in 1979, a law was passed that legalized
home brewing. Gregg Mitchell, president of Rave
Association,; a beer and wine wholesaler in Ann
Arbor, said microbrews are now the fastest grow-
ing segment in the beverage industry.
"Five years ago there were only 75 licensed
brew pubs and microbreweries. At the close of
1996 there are estimated to be close to 1000;'
Mitchell said. "The business has grown anywhere
from 40 percent to 50 percent a year. This is
because people are drinking less, but people are
drinking better-quality beer. People are going for

to wholesalers and stores. Mitchell
said the first microbrewery established east of the
Mississippi - Bell's - is in Kalamazoo and
owned by Larry Bell.
"When Bell started, he would pack his van and

What's happened is
he's turned almost
into a cult figure,
especially in Ann
Arbor - the only
problem is we can't
get enough beer."

the Diag Party
Shoppe, have been
forced to cut down

Kamano said
that not everyone is
interested in drink-
ing better beer -
there are still those
customers that
drink cheap beer in
large quantities.
Bars in Ann
Arbor have caught
on to the micro-
brew fad and many
brews on tap. Erich

Matt Greff, owner of Arbor Brewing Company, hol
"I think it's hurting domestic sales. It's the new
fad and the hot size is 22 oz. I cut back on a lot of
my six-packs and expanded on 22 oz. microbrews"

Shoppe owner Jerome Kamano said the microbrew

that do best are Red Hook, Nor-Wester and Bell's.
