Smash Wine Bar is just one of many new additions to Muskegon’s downtown this summer. The past year has seen the opening of not one but two new breweries, a proposed distillery, and a newly revamped farmer’s market. While the focus of Smash in on their incredible selection of wines from around the world, the food menu features salads, sandwiches and pizzas with an emphasis on locally-sourced an ingredients, and the full bar includes 4 taps of all Michigan beers as well as speciality cocktails and martinis.

The 4th anniversary of Odd Side Ales may have come and went quietly this year, but only because of so much going on behind the scenes. With the production facility in overdrive for 2014, the small pub brewery has shown some signs of the neglect. This has been remedied recently with OSA opening the doors to some local brewers for some experimental small batch beers. Following my “behind the scenes” coverage of the 2013 Morningwood Stout, I was fortunate to get an invite earlier this year to sit in on the brew session for a brand new small batch beer exclusive and was happy to oblige!
