Saison was born in the 1700s in the Belgian countryside and finds its roots as quite a few other regional styles of beer do: necessity. The water available in the region wasn't suitable for consumption, and by the miracle of fermentation, the water was made drinkable. The beer also doubled as compensation for farm workers, to the tune of 5 litres per day.

Rockford Brewing and Brewery Vivant recently hosted their 2nd annual “Fly to the Coq” event, a 14.7 mile group bike ride along the White Pine Trail starting at Rockford Brewing and making the way to Grand Rapid’s Eastown Brewery Vivant. For many, the ride averaged around an hour and half, and while the temperature exceeded 80 degrees there was plenty of opportunities for thirst relinquishment before, after, and for some maybe even during the journey. Along for this year’s ride included representatives of both breweries and even some special guests such as John Svoboda, brewmaster for B.O.B’s Brewery in downtown Grand Rapids.

Recap of 2014 Winter Beer Festival

This year’s Winter Beer Festival at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park was another one for the record books. A record number of breweries, a record number of beers, and of course, once again selling out in a record time of just a few hours. For an epic drinking excursion of this magnitude, a degree of pre-fest sustenance is desirable, and I found mine to be had at Brewery Vivant’s Brewer’s Big Breakfast. Menu items ranging from Chicken & Waffles, PB&J Crepe Cake, or signature Duck Nachos were paired up with Monk-Mosa’s (OJ & Farmhand,) plus all of Vivant’s speciality beer fest beers including the Love Shadow barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout made for a great head start for the big event.
