Tensions are high in Michigan politics, as Governor Rick Snyder heads into his annual “State of the State” address tonight in the midst of the disaster that is the Flint water crisis. While there are plenty of statewide issues that the Governor could touch on, no one really wants to hear about anything but Flint. Explaining how an entire city was poisoned and what he intends to do about it will be no easy task, and should make for an interesting speech.

While we appreciate the severity of the situation, here at Current we’re aiming to make tonight’s State of the State more interesting by devising a drinking game to make what is sure to be a painful hour and a half, a little less painful. We would all be over served if we took a swig every time Snyder mentions 'Flint', so we will be utilizing the below measures for the hot-button topics. You can use any beer you like, but like true Ann Arborites, we will be slugging Wolverine State Brewing’s Amber Lager.
