If ever there was an official state drink for the state of Michigan, it would be Vernors. We Michiganders swear by the this tasty elixir for its medicinal qualities…and for its delicious, bubbly taste.
It’s for these reasons that Vernors has gone on to achieve legendary status and has endured for the last 150 years when all other fizzy soft drinks have faltered. It’s in that vein that we celebrate this lauded pop’s anniversary by telling its story and a few Vernors secrets you may never heard of until now.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
