4. A piece of Michigan history will return home. The Mackinac State Historic Park announced it has purchased a pair of 18th-century portraits with ties to Fort Michilimackinac.
The portraits, painted in 1790, portray British army Col. Arent Depeyster and his wife Rebecca. Depeyster was the commander of Fort Michilimackinac from 1774 through 1779 before moving to Fort Detroit.
According to the MSHP, the portraits were passed down through the Depeyster Family for at least two centuries but were eventually put up for auction in London.
MSHP was tipped off to the find and used $47,000 from the Martin and Patricia Jahn Collections Development Fund to win the auction.
The portraits are expected to be put on display at Mackinac Art Museum this summer.
5. Founders Brewing Company announcing its next KBS barrel-aged beer flavor: chocolate cherry.

KBS chocolate cherry is now available at Founders Brewing Company’s taprooms in Grand Rapids and Detroit. Starting in mid-February, it will be available in stores in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles.
