Regional Brewery: Mother’s Brewing Co.

Mother’s Brewing Co.’s unique lineup of beers, ranging from its special Backyard series to year-round favorites like Towhead, an American blonde, are taking over taps and shelf space across the Midwest. This summer, try seasonal sips like Trop Top, a tropical pale ale, or float trip-friendly cans of lime Gose or tart peach witbier. (Photo courtesy of Mother's Brewing Co.)
