Beats And Brews is a Michigan based blog founded by Emmanuel “E-Man” Bates with the intent of highlighting on the awesome music and beer that comes from the state of Michigan. E-Man Bates is a Hip Hop artist and journalist that decided to combine two things he loves, music and beer. E-Man along with a group of people plan on traveling around the state going to various music venues, bars and breweries interviewing various people in their respective industries. We invite you to follow along as we document our experiences!
