Recap of Soup Spoon & Vine and Brew Rare Beer Dinner

We were privileged to receive an invite to the first ever collaborative beer dinner put on by The Soup Spoon Cafe in Lansing and Vine and Brew, the specialty wine, beer, and food shop in Okemos. The theme of the dinner was "rare beers", focusing on those pricey, hard to come by limited release beers that have become more and more popular as enthusiasm for craft beer has grown. Typically, these beers have very unique and interesting flavors derived from specific spices, fruits, or aging processes, so they lend the opportunity for some great pairings with food.

Tammy's Tastings will be holding a "Know Your Beer" tasting class at 6:30PM on November 7th at The Last Word, a new bar in Ann Arbor. This event will feature local food and beer blogger, Patti Smith, and Tammy Coxen of Tammy's Tastings walking you through the wide and confusing world of modern craft beer. With the ever-expanding availability of different styles & varieties of beer, it is hard not to get mixed up, so this is a nice opportunity to sit and taste some of them with experts. In addition to the tasting, Tammy and Patti will explain how different types of beer are made and the specific ingredients involved that makes them a stout, porter, pale ale, etc. Cousins of beer, cider and mead, will also be tasted and discussed.

Reno's West

Today, October 26th, both Reno's locations will be holding a New Belgium Tap Takeover to celebrate the brewery's new draft beer presence in the Michigan market. If you are unfamiliar with New Belgium, they began brewing European style beers in the early 1990's out of Fort Collins, Colorado and have steadily grown into one of the country's most popular, innovative, environmentally friendly, and people-first micro-breweries in the country. They have built a strong and fierce following in many different markets by sticking to those simple virtues...and by brewing some really damn good beer!

Beer and Cheese Pairing at REO Town Pub featuring Frankenmuth Brewing Company

On Thursday, November 8th at 7PM, we will be holding our next beer event at the REO Town Pub. This time we will be featuring a beer and cheese pairing with beer from Frankenmuth Brewery and cheese from Lansing's own Hills' Homecured Cheeses, which is located within the Lansing City Market.

Reno's West

On Wednesday, October 25th at 7PM, Reno's East & Reno's West will be holding a Founder's Brewery Harvest Party to celebrate the recent tapping of Harvest Ale by Founder's Brewing Company. Harvest Ale is a an extremely fruity, robust, and hop-forward pale ale that was designed to celebrate the rich and diverse harvest season in Michigan. Over the last couple years, it has become on of Founder's most popular seasonal beers and a highly sought after commodity among Michigan beer geeks.
