1) Bell's Two-Hearted Ale

2) Founder's Breakfast Stout

3) Short's Publican Porter

 - list is not all-inclusive by any means; plenty of great Michigan beers

 - your mileage may vary

 - void where prohibited

1. Right Brain Mangalista Pig Porter
2. Short's Soft Parade
3. Atwater Vanilla Java Porter

Also, I know it's a Cleveland brewery, but I have to give a shout out to Great Lakes' Christmas Ale and Edmund Fitzgerald Porter.

All day is your favorite (an ok session IPA, but that's an inherently "meh" style), and you don't like two-hearted?

I love drinking all day during football games so I can nervously gulp for the duration without getting too obliterated, but it is not better than two hearted.  It is good in the way that coors light is good for playing beer pong.

because you made the comment about how you could show people in GA so many beers better than Two Hearted.  I agree that there are plenty better than Two Hearted, but I'm just imagining you busting out the All Day as an example that most would take a sip and be like, dude, seriously, this is what you think is better than Two Hearted?

Totally respect your personal preferences but just don't think many would agree (and again, popular opinion shouldn't matter to anyone individually, but it is an indicator of what others might like if you're trying to intro other people to "better" MI beer, which was the context of your post).
