Brewery Terra Firma, Michigan’s first ever farm-based brewery, opened a little late in the year to take full advantage of the agricultural season. With their first full season just beginning, Muskegon’s Thrasher Collection in conjunction with Tyler Sales has embarked on a collaborative project with the brewery to provide their 4 restaurants being Hank’s, Handsome Henry’s, Hobo’s, and The Handsome Hobo with an exclusive new beer. The beer, described by brewmaster John Niedermaier as an “essence ale”, is a light but full-bodied beer with orange peel and coriander which should lend itself well to food pairings and even as cooking ingredient for specialty dishes.

Hank’s Tavern recently hosted the Founders “Balls and Brews” beer dinner pairing a premium selection of Founders beers with a specially-designed several course dinner to accompany the brews. Seating was limited to 36 people and the event was well attended.The evening began with a welcome toast featuring Founders All Day IPA with ruby red grapefruit sorbet. Hank’s Cody Christensen was on hand to discuss the menu options and Marguex Bouwkamp from Founders introduced the beers and answered questions. For each course, Hank’s staff made the rounds with pitchers of the appropriate paired beer and made certain that no one left hungry (or thirsty!)

Recap of Oberon Release Party Tour in Muskegon

For this year’s Oberon release, I decided to make the rounds in Muskegon and attend as many different release parties as possible. First stop for the die-hards are the midnight releases, of course, which for this year meant staying up late on a Sunday. Being a work night I was surprised to find familiar faces at my local Buffalo Wild Wings who were happy to join me for some Oberon and some wings. Other Michigan beers currently on tap at the Muskegon location include Bell’s Two-Hearted, Founders Dirty Bastard, and Perrin Black Lager. Area Applebee’s were also featuring midnight Oberon releases.

Hank’s Tavern opened late last year and has been building quite a buzz with great food and amazing beer selection. The happy hour specials during the week featuring ½ off draft beers and free wings and meatballs have become regular attraction for many patrons. Other evening specials include ½ of Mexican fare on Mondays (including a newly expanded Mexican menu,) $2.00 draft beers on Tuesdays, and ½ bottles of wine on Wednesdays (which includes wines from Bell’s Brewery.) Also, nights at 10:00 PM is “Earth Hour.” Hank’s Tavern has also been building and expanding on their selection of craft beers with an emphasize on Michigan seasonals and specialties complemented with other great non-Michigan selections like New Belgium's Lips of Faith series.

Hank's Tavern in Muskegon

Veteran Restaurateur Hoby Thrasher promised something new for Muskegon with the new Hank’s Tavern, and on Saturday, December 1st he has delivered. The Henry / Sherman St. location is not new; Previous businesses at this location have included a bank and fast food pizza joint with the short-lived Bonfire restaurant being the most recent tenant. However, this time around Hoby has really outdone himself transforming the building which once felt small and cramped to an expansive and vibrant atmosphere which will be sure to impress anyone familiar with the building’s former occupants.
