Since 2013, the company has featured more than 1,000 artists on its beer labels, along with limited-edition artwork. Through a company statement, Matt Johnston, co-founder and CEO of Collective Arts Brewing, said, "Artists are constantly searching for new channels of distribution for their work; new people to appreciate what they create. Similarly, our drinkers are looking to share and discover both the beer we make and the artists & musicians we present." 


"We're excited to bring our beer and our vision to Michigan drinkers to showcase both global and local art," Johnston said.

Collective Arts Brewing will also have events in Detroit, Jackson, Livonia, Royal Oak, Milford and other cities in West Michigan. It will begin distributing its products through two distributors, Rave and Alliance.
