Our next beer tasting event at the REO Town Pub is set for the evening of Thursday, January 17th at 7pm. To kick off the new year, we'll be sampling beer from Grand Rapids' Schmohz Brewery and wings right from the newest restaurant to open its doors in Lansing's Old Town district, Meat Southern BBQ & Carnivore Cuisine.

Enter to Win 2 Tickets

In conjunction with Motor City Brew Tours, we will be giving away 2 free tickets to the upcoming Winter Beer Festival held at Fifth Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids. This festival, along with its summer version held in Ypsilanti, are the premier annual beer events in Michigan.  Craft breweries from all over the world are will be in attendance offering samples and other exciting giveaways. It is also a unique experience in that it is held in the West Michigan Whitecaps Ballpark, so dressing warm is very important as this is all-day, outdoor event. Tickets this year sold out in less then a day (yeah), so if you don't already have them, this might be your only shot at scoring a couple.

I'm a Beer Hound and Gearhead Brewing collaboration beer The Junkyard Dog

Something special is brewing inside Beeround Headquarters. We recently teamed up with the brand new Haslett Brewery, Gearhead Brewing Company to brew our own collaboration beer, the exclusive Junkyard Dog Black Walnut Milk Stout. The guys at Gearhead are just getting off the ground and, while in the process of gathering all the necessary licenses and permits for distribution, are doing several of these unique, small-batch brews to help grow and promote their brand.

I'm a Beer Hound 2 Year Anniversary Dinner at Soup Spoon Cafe

It's been two whole years since we started the Beer Hound journey, and we are proud to have become one of the leading promoters of all things Michigan Beer. With the help of our sponsors, staff, and loyal social-media following, we have been able to actively and consistently participate in Michigan beer festivals, become close friends with a large number of brewers throughout the state, attend exclusive beer dinners, hold some fantastic events of our own, and generally get to meet lots of great people who love beer. It hasn't always been easy, but we are thrilled with how the project has grown and are very excited for what the future holds, including the soon to be launched Beer Hound Membership Card.

A Few Great Beers to Pair with Thanksgiving Dinner

In just a few short days, most of us will embark on one of the quintessential events of the American experience: heading home for a 2-3 day death-march of way too much food, family, and football. Yes, it's Thanksgiving, the time to remember how thankful we are for our family, and that we don't live with them every other day of the year as well. As far as the food, Thanksgiving dinners can either be delicious and savory or poorly seasoned and boring--there seems to rarely be an in-between.

However the dinner is where you're going, you're likely going to need (we strongly encourage it, anyway) a few beers to help you survive, especially while watching the Lions. So, we thought we would put together a beer drinking guide to Thanksgiving, a couple beers to sip on throughout the day and then a few to go with each of courses in the traditional Thanksgiving meal. We hope you find it useful and wish you safe and happy travels wherever you're headed this week.
