Imperial Stouts: Kuhnhenn Brewing Company Solar Eclipse & Big Rock Chophouse Flying Buffalo Imperial Stout

In today’s beer lingo, the words big and flavorful have taken a back seat to terms like intense, extreme, and the often used “imperial”. For over 250 years, one style, Russian Imperial Stout, has been living up to and often exceeding those descriptors. This big and dark beer started life in English breweries and evolved into a style that would allow it to survive the trip to Russia and the Baltic States. Early attempts to ship beer from England resulted in the receipt of spoiled beer by the Imperial Court of Russia. To deliver a drinkable product, brewers increased the amount of both alcohol and hops in the brew, both ingredients acted as preservatives. The recipients of this big rich brew were delighted to say the least. The isolationist tariffs that the Russian Government imposed in the 1820s applied to all imports, except stout. Now that is a testament to the love for this intense brew.

Recap of The Extra Snowy 2012 Suds and Snow Festival

The 2012 Suds and Snow Festival was different than any other Suds and Snow we have been to mainly because 20 inches of snow dropped in a 24 hour period in the Traverse City area. We headed from Lansing to Traverse City on Friday evening, driving right into the eye of the storm and cruising at a speedy 35mph which made a 3 hour drive a very long 5 hour drive. Once we got to the hotel on Friday, we were only there for about an hour when the power went out for good.
