Many areas of the country now have craft brewers….most of which started as a hobby. In the RDU area….two craft brewers that are readily recognized are Carolina Brewing and Aviator Brewing.
The craft brewing concept has arrived in Muskegon with the announcement that three businesses that will open in 2013. These brewers are local and take their hobby model to a larger scale. The latest is Pidgeon Hill Brewing Co.
What got my attention was the Pidgeon Hill artwork….very classic….well done….and represenatative of Muskegon history. Pidgeon Hill no longer exists….it was mined for foundry sand years ago. Of course Pidgeon Hill Brewing will have to stand on the quality of its products….however their branding creates a strong connection to the community.
