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.

Recap of On the Rock Scotch Ale Tapping at Vitale's of Comstock Park

Muskegon is certainly carving out it’s place on the 2013 beer map. In addition to the previously announced Unruly Brewing Co., two more breweries have announced their intent to open this year, first Fetch Brewing in City of Whitehall, and most recently Pigeon Hill Brewing downtown. A primary incubator for much of this activity has been the MOB (Muskegon Ottawa Brewers) and has kept many of Muskegon’s local brewers a close knit community including participation in the annual Learn To Homebrew day. Two members of this group who are doing their part to keep Muskegon on everyone’s brewing radar are Russ Smith and Tim Borreson.

Beer and Chocolate Pairing at REO Town Pub

Written by Ryan Ranspach

Beer and Chocolate Pairing

Our next event at the REO Town Pub will be a beer and cocolate tasting affair on February 21st starting at 7pm. For this tasting, we will be zeroing in on some of the decadent and well-crafted beers from Dark Horse Brewing Company hailing from Marshall, MI. Dark Horse would be the first to admit that they are an eclectic and strange group of folks, and that they embrace a quirky, small-town, holistic view of brewing. They have become famous for their Crooked Tree IPA, a complex India Pale Ale that has been winner of many awards and boasts an incredible perfect score from "The Bros" at Beer Advocate.

The Soup Spoon Cafe

Last month, we celebrated our second anniversary with a delicious and fun dinner at the Soup Spoon Café in Lansing. It was a five course meal designed by the Nick Gavrilides, owner of the Spoon and Jason Blastic, head chef. We were very excited for this dinner not just because it was a milestone for our project but because of the marvelous creations that come out of Soup Spoon’s kitchen each day, and especially for private beer dinners.
