Distinctive brewpubs? Check.

Memorable burgers? Check.

“Nasty Woman Pancakes?” Yep. (We’ll explain in a moment.)

Whatever you are you in the mood for, here’s a month’s worth of our favorites for you to trying any order you'd like:

Fall reigns as the supreme season for many (myself included) and, really, it’s not surprising why. Fall is just so darn…cozy! Cozy boots, cozy scarfs, cozy sweaters–fall is just all about the cozy. You know what I mean? Then you add in all the wonderful seasonal scents and flavors and you just end up with this perfect storm of pumpkin spice and plaid. *Sighs*

Obviously, it’s easy to persuade me into the fall spirit. If you on the other hand still need a little convincing, here’s one suggestion. Make your way to Greater Lansing’s Makers & Shakers Trail to try one of these five brews. They are deliciously warming and sure to get you in the mood for fall.
