The Fulton Street Farmers Market is the perfect place to go on a Saturday morning. You can pick up some meat and veggies for the week, maybe find a few specialty products, and also find your Bloody Mary mix to cure your Saturday night on Sunday morning.

Brewt’s Bloody Mary mix is a locally owned and operated company on Hall Street. The name for their mix comes from an unlikely source.

“Brutus is our Chihuahua – the CEO’s Chihuahua,” said Karla Demott, who was running their spot at the market. “He is a connoisseur of all fine drinks.”

The CEO also happens to be her sister, and the two have a product with a big goal in mind: bring back the bloody.

“We wanted to bring back the Bloody Mary, which has become more of a meal, and we wanted to bring the drink back,” Demott said. “We’re a healthy alternative. We’re all natural, gluten free, preservative free, low in sodium, and no added sugar.

“It’s a drink you can drink any time, and it has so much you can use with it… you can mix it with vodka,  with gin, with tequila. It’s not a picky one. It’s great for recovery and it’s great for a nighttime.”

Brewt’s has only been in business for a little over two years, but goes well beyond the market. Demott said they’re now available in 400 stores across Michigan, and just launched at a farmer’s market in Los Angeles, California.

Demott also noted their passion for the Mitten State and supporting those who support them.

“We were born and raised in Byron Center, and so we really appreciate Michigan,” she said. “Michigan people appreciate Michigan product, and really celebrating the farmer and bringing that fresh produce into it too was really a big deal to us.”

Brewt’s Bloody Mary Mix is on its way to bring back a classic drink, and has its sights set on a locally made product to be on a national scale. For more information on Brewt’s, visit their website at, or find them at the Fulton Street Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.
