GRAND RAPIDS — Bell’s Brewery Inc.’s announcement last week that it’s selling to the parent company of New Belgium Brewing Co. sent shockwaves through Michigan’s craft beverage industry. It also represents the latest in a series of high-profile deals involving Michigan craft beverage companies.

Founder Larry Bell told MiBiz last week that the sale to Lion Little World Beverages is a “really good fit,” as Bell’s shares a similar culture and product with New Belgium.
