On a personal note, this is great news! One of my favorite breweries is opening in the new development around The District Detroit… a 5 minute walk from Little Caesars Arena!

This is the time of year when everyone puts out a list of beers for Valentine’s Day. Some match candies and beer, while others go with ones that complement (or contrast) your romantic meal.

The Michigan Brewers Guild put out their list… I like this one!

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


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 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 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))

Looks like if you were waiting to get tickets for Saturday’s session at the Michigan Brewers Guild Detroit Fall Beer Festival, you’re out of luck! Tickets are SOLD OUT! Tickets for Friday’s session is still available, but may go fast now! Go get them from HERE!

(Note: I’ve been to enough of these to know that some people will try to sell their extra tickets at the gate. Also, some people will try to sell extras online, but watch out for scalpers… those tickets will probably be disabled/confiscated.)

Also, they have posted the program online in PDF format for your researching purposes. Get a copy of it from this page – link on the right side.

I got my ticket ready for Saturday… See you there!

(Note to anyone from the Michigan Brewers Guild – This blogger [read as: MEDIA] would appreciate info on getting credentials for Friday’s session PLEASE!!!)
