A Muskegon Brewery launched a new beer this week in honor of Michigan's Governor Gretchen Whitmer and it sold out within minutes.

The Rake Beer Project calls their brew "Big Gretch: The Return"; they'd launched a hard seltzer named for Gov. Whitmer in May. The new beer, a petite dry hopped sour saison with mango, was sold in $18 four packs and available for pick up at the brewery.

In a post to Facebook, the brewery shares,

This is the largest single batch of beer that we have ever produced, and the most cases that we have ever released at once, all gone in under just 10 minutes. To those of you who were unable to get some, we apologize deeply. We intentionally made such a large amount this time around to try to ensure that each and every person that wanted some was able to get some. We will take this as a learning experience going forward.

They thank those who purchased "Big Gretch: The Return", saying,

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to each and every person that placed an order. As we always say, as long you wonderful people continue to support our crazy, silly, and fun ideas, we will continue to act on them.

Like all Michigan bars and restaurants, The Rake Beer Project is currently closed for dine-in to slow the spread of COVID-19.

According to Fox 17, the owner says he supports the governor in making the tough decisions needed to bring the pandemic under control.

The Rake Beer Project opened in September 2019 at at 794 Pine Street in Muskegon.
