Detroit Beer Company

Ah, Detroit! Some say it is on the brink of a huge renaissance. Others say to put a fork in it. Wherever you stand on the issue, one thing is for certain: the city has excellent choices for beer.

Recap of 4th Annual Michigan Brewers Guild Detroit Fall Beer Fest

This is the fourth year of the Michigan Brewers Guild Detroit Fall Beer Festival and it has been growing bigger and bigger each year. In fact, this festival has grown so much that the Brewers Guild decided to make it a two-day festival! For Paul and me, this was our second time attending this festival. I really love the fact that it is located in the heart of Detroit at the popular Eastern Market. I love the Eastern Market. We try to make it down there whenever we are in the area on a day that it is open. I am glad that the Brewers Guild decided to just extend the festival to two days rather than move it to an alternate location. I really feel that there is no better location within the Detroit City Limits to hold this wonderful festival.

Interview with Travis Fritts Owner/Brewer at Detroit Beer Company

I caught up with Travis Fritts Owner/Brewer of Detroit Beer Company at Crunchy's in East Lansing. In this interview, one of that questions we asked Travis is why drink Michigan Beer? He explains that beer is a product that can stand up to aging but beer is meant to be consumed locally and the further away a beer is from it's source, you might get a good beer and you might not. It's best to consume beer close to where it made.
