Art and Craft Beer Fest Recap

The 2013 Art and Craft BeerFest

Lansing's first ever Art and Craft Beer Fest at the Art Alley building in REO Town was a huge success, and we want to thank everyone involved. From everyone who purchased tickets to Roxaanne, Craig, and Jack from the REO Town Pub, from the volunteers to the bands and artists, and all the breweries and their representatives--this was truly a great night and could not have been pulled off without everyone's support.

Beer and Chocolate Pairing

Our next event at the REO Town Pub will be a beer and cocolate tasting affair on February 21st starting at 7pm. For this tasting, we will be zeroing in on some of the decadent and well-crafted beers from Dark Horse Brewing Company hailing from Marshall, MI. Dark Horse would be the first to admit that they are an eclectic and strange group of folks, and that they embrace a quirky, small-town, holistic view of brewing. They have become famous for their Crooked Tree IPA, a complex India Pale Ale that has been winner of many awards and boasts an incredible perfect score from "The Bros" at Beer Advocate.

The Soup Spoon Cafe

Last month, we celebrated our second anniversary with a delicious and fun dinner at the Soup Spoon Café in Lansing. It was a five course meal designed by the Nick Gavrilides, owner of the Spoon and Jason Blastic, head chef. We were very excited for this dinner not just because it was a milestone for our project but because of the marvelous creations that come out of Soup Spoon’s kitchen each day, and especially for private beer dinners.

How to Make Chili Using Espresso and Giant Slayer Russian Imperial Stout

It is difficult to find solace and inner-peace in the afterglow of the holidays. A day or two after New Year's, one starts thinking about the challenges, new directives, and TPS Reports that lie ahead--it can shake a man loose if he's not careful. So for a final sendoff of the holiday season, I travelled to my Spiritual Advisor's house and set to work on planning a large and decadent pot of chili. I am not and have never claimed to be well-versed in chili. I enjoy eating it a few times a year, namely at out annual chili-themed tailgate in the fall, but I play no real role in the production of the dish at this event. Simply, I am no expert at the stuff.
