Pure MichiCan is happening at the Tin Can!

Written by Aimee West

The Tin Can has grown by leaps and bounds in the Lansing area. This is largely due to the fact that many of the micro breweries have started canning their beers. Beverage/ Marketing Manager Stacey Fedewa had this to say, “We have always tried to support the local economy by featuring local products such as our faygo bombs. (Faygo bomb = Flavored Vodkas mixed with Faygo pop made in MI) As far as beers we have carried Keweenaw Brewing company since day one. They were the only micro brew from Michigan to can their product. Now we feature a variety of micro brews from: Bell's Brewery, Blackrock's Brewery, Brewery Vivant, Frankenmuth Brewing Co., Keweenaw Brewing Co., Vander Mill Cider, Uncle John's Cider, Right Brain Brewery, Griffin Claw Brewing Co., Atwater Brewery, and many more.” All of those are great choices in a state filled with excellent craft beer.

Soon residents of Lansing will not have to drive all the way to Dexter to experience the “Taste It. Love It. Tote It,” attitude of The Beer Grotto. “This is such a neat concept, really a different way of selling and drinking wine and beer,” said Short. “We have what we call tasting pods, little island counters where people can wander through the store, taste samples, and engage with our staff if that’s what they want, or they can use the iPads we’ve set up to scroll through the full tasting notes for the beers and wines we have, constantly updated in real time.”

Hops at 84 East is located at 84 East 8th Street in downtown Holland. The former 84 East and Froggy’s restaurants have been combined and renovated with a new bar featuring 70 taps of craft beer, cider, and wine and the kitchen enhanced to include old menu favorites as well as new 600 degree brick pizza ovens. Rotating taps for the grand opening weekend included KBS, Devil Dancer, and Backwoods Bastard from Founders, and Q Falls, Oracle, and Wedding Ale from Bell’s. A special “hop-rocket” wet hopped craft beer was also tapped each day for the celebration. Live music was featured all weekend long with Further Closer on Friday, De Hurricane Reggae Band on Saturday, and Matt Plessner on Sunday.

Beer City Article

When I started Experience Beer, there were many crazy ideas jostling around in my brain, the first and primary goal was to put on the Grand Rapids Beer Tasting Class, Michigan's first extensive 9-week Beer Tasting Class, which is currently in it's fourth year. Over the couple years, another idea had come alongside, and that was the idea of a Brewer's Round Table. What if you got all of the city's brewers on stage for one awesome night of Q+A?
