Mr. Rapai wrote "Brewed in Michigan: the new golden age of brewing the Great Beer State". Les Cheneaux Community Library is partnering with the Les Cheneaux Distillers in Cedarville to host Mr. Rapai. Craft brewing now contributes more than $1.8 billion annually to the state's economy and is proving to be an economic catalyst, helping to revive cities and invigorate neighborhoods. William Rapai highlights the forces behind the leading craft breweries in Michigan. Taprooms associate with these breweries have become a conduit for conversation - places for people to gather and discuss current events, raise money for charities, and search for ways to improve their communities. The event will be held at the Les Cheneaux Distillers on Meridian St. in Cedarville. There will be beer tasting after the presentation.
