Here is the start of our list. What can we do to make sure that the stuff we buy is made here in the US. The first thing we can do is figure out what is made here and what is not, sometimes that is not easy. Menards is having a Made In USA sale this week so that is a good place to start, what else do we know for sure is made in USA.

Yes, it is Blue. In fact, I ship it down to my sister in Georgia because she can't get it down there.

Menards is running another Made in the USA sale this week. How come none of the other Big Box stores do this?

Sandy, they sell it at the Publix stores around here, and i believe Publix has built stores all around Georgia and the carolinas now.......my dad told me, when he was a kid in Battle Creek, it was a big deal to go somewhere in Michigan, where Vernors was made.....i also like Ginger beer, but i think it comes from Jamaica.....

I really love it, but it's hardly ever on sale. I would stock up, if they would discount it a bit....$3.99 for a twelve pack is kinda strong, i think....

Ghost Vodka. Not only is it American made, it's MICHIGAN made - using Michigan crops... except for the bottles. The maker can't find a US bottle company to make those bottles just yet...

Idea Maker, bless you, for helping keep, this important thread alive...i wish anyone that has an american product, still available, would come on and tell about it, so we could avoid as many foreign goods as possible.....

But how many of the microbreweries have found a bottle maker in the states? The maker of Ghost is still looking for a bottle maker here in the states. Until then, if he wants to bottle and sell his product, he's forced to import the bottles.

But I do think it would be great if he could find a maker here in the states, and even better in Michigan!

And it's an 80 proof Vodka... not a beer...
