CARO, MI (WNEM) -

A battle is brewing in a Mid-Michigan town over the location of a proposed bar.

A bar and distillery called the Thumb Rum & Brew is trying to move in to Caro.

But on Monday night congregation members from two churches in Caro’s downtown area presented the city council with written and verbal objections, according to Caro City Manager Jared Olson.

Churches and schools within 500 feet can object to a liquor license according to Michigan law.

The Liquor Control Commission will now schedule a hearing on the liquor license request and will send an inspector to measure the distances to the neighboring churches.
