In 1898, Lansing became home to an eponymous brewery on Turner Street. It closed 16 years later, and for more than a century the brand lay dormant. But like a kaiju roused from slumber by a nuclear detonation, so re-emerges the name Lansing Brewing Co., summoned by a seemingly insatiable local taste for craft beer.
