The beer is brewed by Michigan Brewing Co., near Lansing, Michigan, which has been using biodiesel to power a steam generator used in the beer production process since 2007. Aside from pushing the green angle, Kid Rock – pictured above with the Mercedes BlueTEC-loving Sheryl Crow, Rock's singing partner on "Picture" – is also a job creator: MBC got a $722,957 tax credit to make his new beer, creating 400 jobs. Sierra Nevada also uses biofuels to help make beer.
While the "American-style lager" is currently only available in Michigan, a nationwide roll-out is planned for the next 12 months or so. After all, it's not called Michigan Badass Beer, is it?
