Lots on tap at B.O.B.'s Brewery in downtown Grand Rapids

The B.O.B. is a destination in and of itself; but maybe instead you are here for a concert at the Van Andel, visiting the local theater or perhaps one of many great local events such as ArtPrize or the Festival of the Arts. Maybe you are even here visiting one of the many exceptional breweries such as Founders or Hopcat. Whatever the reason, a visit to the Monkey Bar at this building's basement level serving as the home of B.O.B's brewery equals a guaranteed exceptional find in this city already renowned for it's exceptional taste in beer.

We need your help for Grand Rapids to WIN Beer City USA!

Grand Rapids is on the cusp of something very exciting. A few years ago, the venerable Yoda of American home brewing, Charlie Papazian, started a national poll contest called, "Beer City USA". The idea was to create a poll that went beyond sales statistics and market research to determine where in the country the most excitement and enthusiasm existed for craft beer. As craft beer has always been more about people rather than huge numbers and output, it was fitting that a poll like this be created. It gave the true lovers of craft beer a voice and the chance to stand up and declare their town, "Beer City USA"!

Recap of 2012 Founders Brewing Co. Black Party

Once again the popularity of Founders Brewing Company drew enough people to form a line outside that seemed to last throughout the day. Last time it was the release of KBS and this time it was their 11th Annual Black Party; a day where they do a tap take-over on themselves making 14 of 16 beers on tap black, seven of which were just for the Black Party.

Recap of Barrel-Aged Beer Night at The Shark Club in Howell

On Thursday night we went out to the Shark Club in Howell for their Barrel-Aged Beer Night. The Shark Club is a big place that can fit around 300 people and at this event there had to be at least 150 patrons out enjoying barrel-aged beers. It’s cool to see this kind of turn out since barrel-aged beers are more of an acquired taste and probably not the first choice for an average beer drinker. I must say it’s nice to see people appreciating great beer and the quality of the beer bring them in the door instead of a $2 beer night.

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.
