Over the past decade there has been tremendous growth in Michigan based breweries. There’s Founders in Grand Rapids, Bell's in Kalamazoo, Atwater in Detroit. In Lansing, there’s nothing. Matt Jason and Jeremy Sprague are hoping to change that.
They're working to open a brewery and distillery on Lansing’s eastside. The creators of the brewery, Sleepwalker Spirits and Ale, have a unique business plan. They are inviting members of the community to be co-owners of their brewery.
