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.

The Big Red Coq Has Been Released…It’s a Beer

Last week, Brewery Vivant once again tapped an old favorite: Big Red Coq, a “Hoppy Belgo-American Red Ale”. It feels weird saying “old favorite” when referencing something from a brewery that’s less than two years old, but…it seems they have at least one beer and hundreds, if not thousands of followers that make those words good to use.

We need your help for Grand Rapids to WIN Beer City USA!

Grand Rapids is on the cusp of something very exciting. A few years ago, the venerable Yoda of American home brewing, Charlie Papazian, started a national poll contest called, "Beer City USA". The idea was to create a poll that went beyond sales statistics and market research to determine where in the country the most excitement and enthusiasm existed for craft beer. As craft beer has always been more about people rather than huge numbers and output, it was fitting that a poll like this be created. It gave the true lovers of craft beer a voice and the chance to stand up and declare their town, "Beer City USA"!

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.

Shark Club's Barrel Aged Beer Night - Howell Mi

Come enjoy Beer aged in all sorts of Barrels!
This is a cool event going on at the always exciting Shark Club Billiards and Night Club in Howell. Their normal lineup of craft beers is fantastic, but on March 29th it gets even better (and boozier) for their Barrel Aged Beer Night featuring more than ten barrel aged beers from around Michigan and beyond.
