Reo Town Pub Receives A Whole New Look

Written by Aimee West

Everyone has that local bar that makes you feel welcome just by walking in the door. Reo Town Pub is that bar for me. Recently, the Beer Hound offices were just a spiral staircase away. On bad days, or just days we decided to close up shop early and have a beer, you could find us talking to owner Roxanne and either Jack or Sarah while they bartended.

The LeLu Cafe in Northport may be commonly known for its extensive local wine collection, but it has a sneaky good beer selection as well. The LeLu Cafe has the most relaxed atmosphere in Leelanau County, with lounge areas, a great outdoor patio, and window-seat daybeds. Live music is played Wednesday through Saturday, starting at 9pm nightly.

The west side of Grand Rapids continues to foster new growth and development with The Black Heron Kitchen & Bar being the latest venture to opens it’s doors. Located on the corner of Sumner Ave and Bridge St NW, this new restaurant sits kitty corner to the upcoming location of New Holland Brewing’s Grand Rapids location now under development. My wife and I were recently invited to attend a sneak preview of the Black Heron along with the Grand Rapids-based food community group EatGR and jumped at the opportunity. Our visit include a complimentary champagne toast which was a nice touch to complement the soft opening.

Michiganders only get a few months of warm weather each year. If you are anything like me, it is imperative to soak up the sunshine as often as possible. That is why I am constantly on the lookout for places with great outdoor patios. One of the best patios Traverse City has to offer sits atop The Franklin. Not only is the patio atmosphere worth seeing, but the beer selection is out of this world.

When you get invited to go try the new menu at Monk Beer Abbey, you don't turn it down! I had the pleasure of going with a long time friend of mine and fellow food connoisseur Abby, and her husband Joe.

 rochester tap room article

Michigan was the first state to repeal prohibition, by ratifying the 21st Amendment on April 10, 1933. The newly opened Rochester Tap Room wants to honor and celebrate that history. From a bar top made of reclaimed wood from 1930’s homes to wood panels from the former U. S. Federal Reserve Building in Detroit, the building pays homage to 1933.

the parlor article 

With a diverse and elaborate selection of draft and bottled craft beers, The Parlor is one of Traverse City’s best locations to visit for a great beverage. Their happy hour deals will make your jaw drop, consisting of half off all food and beverages, Monday-Saturday, 4pm-7pm. A few of the breweries represented include Short’s Brewing Company, Founder’s Brewing Company, New Holland Brewing Company, and Right Brain Brewery. With such a tremendous happy hour, that puts both the Dirty Bastard from Founder’s and Soft Parade from Short’s at a mere $3 per bottle. The beer list is ever-rotating, so the opportunity to try something new is always presented. Of course, the wine and signature cocktail list is extensive as well, so you can always bring your non-beer-drinking friends along for the experience.

We are waiting patiently for The Beer Grotto to open in Lansing. While we wait we decided to brave the cold and check out The Beer Grotto in Ann Arbor.

Let me tell you I almost howled to the sky in true Beer Hound fashion when Paul said that we were going to the VIP opening night of Hop Cat Ann Arbor.
