As always, the Michigan Brewers Guild Detroit Fall Beer Festival didn't disappoint. With 60 breweries and over 450 beers available, there was enough to satisfy everyone's thirst. This is the second year they offered the festival on Friday and the 5th year on Saturday, and I really enjoy it because the breweries showcase their fall seasonal beers such as Oktoberfests, Pumpkin Beers, Brown Ales, Stouts, Barleywines, and different barrel-aged beers.

Cinderella said that a dream is a wish our heart makes. That certainly may be true, but for those of us who aren’t cartoon characters and who don’t live in a castle…well, dreams take money. There are a few ways to get this initial capital—trust fund (sign me up please), rich dead relative (ditto), bank loan (difficult for any start-up) or the Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest. And this year, the winner of Hatch Detroit was none other than Batch Brewing Company!

Ah, Detroit! Some say it is on the brink of a huge renaissance. Others say to put a fork in it. Wherever you stand on the issue, one thing is for certain: the city has excellent choices for beer.

It's spring time and that means it's time to kick off another season of Tiger Baseball at Comerica Park in Detroit. With the team coming up just short of winning a World Series title last fall, hopes and expectations are high that this will be the year they bring a championship back to The D!

This is the fourth year of the Michigan Brewers Guild Detroit Fall Beer Festival and it has been growing bigger and bigger each year. In fact, this festival has grown so much that the Brewers Guild decided to make it a two-day festival! For Paul and me, this was our second time attending this festival. I really love the fact that it is located in the heart of Detroit at the popular Eastern Market. I love the Eastern Market. We try to make it down there whenever we are in the area on a day that it is open. I am glad that the Brewers Guild decided to just extend the festival to two days rather than move it to an alternate location. I really feel that there is no better location within the Detroit City Limits to hold this wonderful festival.

The fourth annual Detroit Beer Week is currently underway. This event is aimed at celebrating the great city of Detroit in a positive way by bringing people together through beer and good food. It's also a great chance for people to experience some of the unique bars and restaurants throughout the city and to grow awareness & appreciation for these local businesses. This year will be similar to the rest in that it will be chock full of fun events, and the World Series coming to The D is certainly an added bonus!
