The three different beers we tried were the Wittekerke which is a Belgian White or WIT Beer, and we had St. Louis Framboise which is a Fruit Lambic.

Recap of Barrel-Aged Beer Night at The Shark Club in Howell

On Thursday night we went out to the Shark Club in Howell for their Barrel-Aged Beer Night. The Shark Club is a big place that can fit around 300 people and at this event there had to be at least 150 patrons out enjoying barrel-aged beers. It’s cool to see this kind of turn out since barrel-aged beers are more of an acquired taste and probably not the first choice for an average beer drinker. I must say it’s nice to see people appreciating great beer and the quality of the beer bring them in the door instead of a $2 beer night.
