Jeff Priskorn

Jeff Priskorn is a guy who didn’t even like beer until he was 25, which isn’t all that surprising given that the family fridge was stocked with Goebel and Carling Black Label during his tender years. Now an elderly young man, he can finally say that Bud Light is swill and is a proud proselyte to the microbrew world and a loud (and sometimes annoying) advocate for Michigan-made beer. Jeff’s goal is to visit all 100+ Michigan microbreweries and brewpubs, and he’s at least 60% there. In addition to drinking and writing about beer, Jeff is a software guy, actor, voice artist, and musician. Check him out at JeffPriskorn.com, come see his band Mad Rabbit (Michigan’s Live Jukebox™) at a bar near you, and sample his fledgling beer blog at phruityonbeer.blogspot.com.

Weather, Marquette Combine for Successful U.P. Fall Beer Fest

Saturday, September 8, was your typical, run-of-the-mill late summer day in Michigan: chilly, cloudy, partly sunny, fairly warm, and with periods of light showers and no showers at all. Also included: U.P. Beer Fest 2012, set in Lower Mattson Harbor Park in beautiful Marquette, MI. The wife and I (well, mostly I) were anticipating a great day sampling the wares of more than 35 Michigan craft brewers, along with some local food and musical entertainment. In all, we were looking forward to five hours of controlled and polite beer mayhem!

Kuhnhenn Brewing Company: A Nondescript Building That Belies The Liquid Treasures Hidden Inside

Kuhnhenn Brewing Company in Warren is housed in a nondescript building that belies the liquid treasures hidden inside. There are reasons for the unpretentious, plain façade, of course. Number 1 is that Kuhnhenn is housed in the old Ma & Pa hardware store that used to be owned and run by the Kuhnhenn family, and Ye Olde True Value has never been known for its architectural splendor. Number 2? Well, they really don’t care about glitz and glamour, preferring instead to let their beer (and wine, and mead) do the talking for them. Their beers have won numerous medals and awards around the globe, led by their stalwarts 4th Dementia (ale aged in bourbon barrels) and DRIPA (a double rice IPA).
