Gov. Rings the Bell’s

When encouraging Michiganders to stimulate the economy during her State of the State Address Tuesday night, Gov. Jennifer Granholm dropped a little line for one of our own.

She said: “Support Michigan. Select Michigan. Buy Michigan. Everything from Ford to Faygo. From Bell’s beer to blueberries. While we may court new investment from outside our state, our first love is the businesses that have long called Michigan home.”

“When the governor is out talking about your beer, she becomes your No. 1 salesperson,” president Larry Bell said.
