I made the news (sort of) about MBG Winter Beer Festival!

MBGWBF15

I guess it pays to blog…

On my other blog (The Pridelands), I posted back in 2006 that my best friend and beautiful wife, Jennifer, and I were attended the Michigan Brewers Guild Winter Beer Festival in Lansing, Michigan. It was the first year that they were doing a winter festival, and I remember having a great time (after a ‘false start’ or two).

Garret Ellison from MLive.com saw it and contacted me to see if I would answer a few questions. Any time I can talk about Michigan beer and the Michigan Brewers Guild, I love it, so I agreed to talk with him.

He wrote a great article about the 10th Anniversary of the MBG Winter Beer Festival, and I hope I did Michigan beer and the Guild proud!

Ironically, I had to give up my tickets this morning for Saturday due to a personal conflict. I was hoping to attend Friday’s session as a media person (I DO have this blog after all), but I didn’t request a media pass.

I apologize to Garret and MLive.com for my ‘Brian Williams’ moment, but I had all intentions to attending…

Cheers to my family and friends! I hope you all have a great (and safe) time in Grand Rapids! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to the MICHIGAN BREWERS GUILD for 10 FUN AND TASTY YEARS OF FREEZING MY BEHIND!!! (You’re the only reason I’d go out into the snow and cold!)

By the way, the tickets for Friday’s session is still available! Get your tickets NOW by going HERE! ($45 in advance, but $50 at the gate (if still available))
