2012 Michigan Brewers Guild Winter Beer Festival

On Saturday we attended the magnum opus of winter beer festivals which is the Michigan Brewers Guild Winter Beer Festival. We took the Motor City Tours Company bus to the festival and I must say it's the way to go so you don't have to worry about driving after the festival.

Harmony Brewing Company | Grand Rapids

Harmony Brewing Company is so new there was not yet a sign on the building when my friends & I visited earlier this week. If you are considering a stop soon, note the address of 1551 Lake Dr. SE, right in the heart of Grand Rapid's Eastown (and right off of Wealthy St. as well.) Locals may also recognize the location as the former Jack's Liquor Store. We knew we were in the right place when we spotted one of the bartenders of Grand Haven's Odd Side Ales leaving the premises, singing the praises of the chocolate honey porter.

Founders Brewing Company  | Curmudgeon's Better Half

On Monday, February 13th, a day prior to Valentine's Day, the tap room at Founders opened at it's usual 11 AM. However, this day was anything like a normal slow paced Monday work day at the brewery as twelve hundred bottles of the latest “Backstage Series” beer were made available for sale. My friends and I arrived fashionably late around 1 PM to a standing room only bar and we were able to snag a couple bottles each of the last couple of hundred remaining bottles. (By 3 PM, all of the bottles were sold out.)

Finish Product With Making Ice Cream With Founders KBS

We got an ice cream attachment for our stand-mixer at our wedding shower this past year. I used it once and the frozen bowl attachment as been sitting in my freezer ever since, patiently and plantively waiting to whip up another batch. So, when I saw drinkmichigan.org posted a recipe for a beer flavored ice cream, I knew what had to be done.
