BAD Brewing features many different kinds of craft beer.

Brewing In Mason

About 20 minutes south of Lansing, you can find a small-town home to a county government and a barrage of small businesses. As you get toward the heart of Mason, the large franchises that surround America come to halt and the locally-owned businesses consume the town’s retail market. Among these shops, you’ll find business owner, Brian Rasdale, who owns Mason’s BAD Brewing Company. Rasdale is a St. Johns native and earned his associate’s degree from Lansing Community College.

LANSING — The Great Lakes basin supplies breweries with some of the freshest water in the country. But if brewers like what they taste, some experts suggest they make some changes in how they use that water. “You can’t brew great beer without great water,” said Dave Engbers, co-founder of Founders Brewing Co. in Grand Rapids. Engbers was a featured speaker at a recent Great Lakes Water Conservation Conference in Grand Rapids.
