Gov. Whitmer sends Bell's beer care package to 'SNL' star Cecily Strong

Well, one thing's for certain: Cecily Strong won't hold the wrong beer ever again when portraying Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

You may recall last week Strong played the role of the Michigan governor during a "Saturday Night Live" sketch that didn't make the live airing but was posted online after. The State of Michigan took notice and so did Whitmer, who told Fox 2 that she found it funny, but took issue with Strong holding a Labatt Blue rather than a Michigan-made beer.

"We love Canada, but we drink Michigan beer," Whitmer said, holding a Bell's Two Hearted Ale.

Turns out, Whitmer took it a step further: She sent Strong a "care package" of Michigan beer and goodies, all from Comstock-based Bell's Brewery, the largest and perhaps most recognizable independent craft brewery in the state.

1. Well, all the more reason to like her!

I've got the same on tap here at home - sure makes social distancing easier!
