A Beer for the Season: Saison

New Holland Brewing Company Golden Cap Saison Ale

As the temperatures start to rise, as the grass and trees get greener, we as beer drinkers often look to lighter styles to quench our thirst. A perfect example of this type of brew is Saison. The name its self is originally French for season and summer is the season we are talking about. These beers originally were brewed in the Wallonia region in Southern Belgium which was predominately French speaking. These lower alcohol pale ales were designed for the farm workers for drinking during the harvest season.

Come out to try the Great Brunch Offered at the Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti

I am not now, nor have I ever been, a “breakfast” person. My earliest classin college was 11:00 a.m. I about died when I was given a schedule in law school (my first “career”, if you will) and the first class was at 8:30. I really didn’t like reallife, which came with an 8:00 a.m. starting time. Now as a teacher, I find startingtimes even earlier than 8:00 and that just makes me sad. No one should have to function before about noon, in my opinion. When I take over the world, not only will everyone have summers off, but nothing important will start before 11:30 orso. It will be a wonderful world, I assure you.

Recap of The Extra Snowy 2012 Suds and Snow Festival

The 2012 Suds and Snow Festival was different than any other Suds and Snow we have been to mainly because 20 inches of snow dropped in a 24 hour period in the Traverse City area. We headed from Lansing to Traverse City on Friday evening, driving right into the eye of the storm and cruising at a speedy 35mph which made a 3 hour drive a very long 5 hour drive. Once we got to the hotel on Friday, we were only there for about an hour when the power went out for good.
