Stormcloud Brewing Company Named One of Michigan’s 50 Companies to Watch

A Northern Michigan brewery is getting some big praise as a small business.

Stormcloud Brewing Company, in Frankfort, has been named one of "Michigan’s 50 Companies to Watch."

The Michigan Celebrates Small Business Association is presenting that award.

It celebrates companies that have had a successful year of growth or plan to keep expanding business.

Co-owner Rick Schmitt says part of their success lies with being here in Northern Michigan.

 “Being on a list that is state-wide and being here in Northern Michigan, I think that helps validate everybody that does business in the greater Grand Traverse area that we’re doing good work, and that people are taking notice and this is a great place to live, and work, and growing business is an important component of that,” says Schmitt.

Michigan Celebrates Small Business will present the award to Stormcloud at a gala on May 5.
