Several Michigan Drink Options for St. Patty's Day

One again, beer lovers, St. Patty's day is right around the corner. It's a day full of hearty food and hearty drinks, but Craft drinkers find themselves surrounded by macro 'green beer' and a rather intense general love for Guinness. There's nothing wrong with either of those, of course, but I'm here to give your St. Patty's day festivities some options for a Michigan Beer twist!

A Few Great Beers to Pair with Thanksgiving Dinner

In just a few short days, most of us will embark on one of the quintessential events of the American experience: heading home for a 2-3 day death-march of way too much food, family, and football. Yes, it's Thanksgiving, the time to remember how thankful we are for our family, and that we don't live with them every other day of the year as well. As far as the food, Thanksgiving dinners can either be delicious and savory or poorly seasoned and boring--there seems to rarely be an in-between.

However the dinner is where you're going, you're likely going to need (we strongly encourage it, anyway) a few beers to help you survive, especially while watching the Lions. So, we thought we would put together a beer drinking guide to Thanksgiving, a couple beers to sip on throughout the day and then a few to go with each of courses in the traditional Thanksgiving meal. We hope you find it useful and wish you safe and happy travels wherever you're headed this week.

2012 Royal Oak Winter Beer Festival

Last weekend Paul and I had a booth at The Royal Oak Winter Beer Festival. This was a great event that was held in the beautiful Royal Oak Music Theatre located in Royal Oak, MI.  We have never been to an event in a theatre like this before. I really loved how they utilized the unique space that they had. There were brewery tables set up on each tier of the floor with Michigan Brewing Company occupying the entire main stage. This was interesting to me beause you rarely see MBC at any events, let alone having more beers on tap than any other brewery in attendance.
