Review of Jolly Pumpkin and the Production Facility for North Peak Beer in Traverse City

Northern Michigan's Old Mission Peninsula is home to the State's third largest capacity brewery following Founders and Bell's. This is the current bottling and production facility for North Peak beer; however, the restaurant and pub next door bear the name Jolly Pumpkin. So what is the connection? The key is a brewing collaborative that spans from the north-western Traverse City south-east to Dexter and Ann Arbor known as the Northern United Brewing Company.

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.

Finished Meatloaf Made With Dubious Black Chocolate Stout by North Peak Brewing Company

In the quest to combine beer with all the suits and trappings of my life I thought, why not meatloaf? Meat, beer, bread, cheese. I can only think of a few other things a man needs in life....well, there are some other things but for now let's just stick to those four. You can find a vast number of meat loaf recipes on the world wide websiphere (and probably a few in your Aunt Geraldine's cookbook), but I would wager that not a great many of them include beer. I found a recipe I could work with and make a few changes to and set to work...

Michigan Breweries | The Winter Seasonal Beers

As the days get shorter and the temperatures start to plummet, there is no mistake that Winter is here. Although the season does not start officially until the Winter Solstice, December 22 this year, ask any Michigander and they will tell you Winter starts much earlier. While all people know the bad that Winter brings... snow, school closings, bad roads, etc we need to focus on the good. The good that I am referring to is Winter Beer!
