Every year, we take a look at the state of local drinking with the Slöshed Issue. This time around, we wanted to show some of the ways local watering holes have adapted to recent trends, including family-friendly pubs, the craft beer craze, a yen for sohpisticated cocktails and fresh ingredients, or just a desire to create a sense of place. We talked to the people making local bars happen and asked for their take on what distinguishes their operations and keeps folks bellying up. Also, we talked with beer experts and asked, “Is 2013 the year Michigan’s beer will win respect in its home state?” Drink it all in.
