2015 Michigan Winter Beer Festival

Where has the time gone? After being open for a little more than three months, time is flying by and we’re loving every minute of it.  In February we participated in our very first beer festival with the awesome folks from the Michigan Brewers Guild.  We had a bumpy start with some frozen tap lines, but after using a blow torch and some highly-sought-after buckets of hot water, the beers were flowing and the party began.

Our resident brewer, Chris, made some headlines with his crazy antics and wizard costume.  He even got some love from MLive in an interview talking about our newest beer, Sweet Water Street.  We used 250 Sweetwater’s Donut Mill donut holes and a very concentrated, cold-pressed blend of coffee from our friends over at Water Street Coffee Roaster to brew an imperial coffee donut porter. So tasty.

We had a great time at the 2015 Michigan Winter Beer Festival and are looking forward to the next one.  Thanks again for all of the support from our volunteers, our regular customers that stopped by to show their love at the festival and to all of the new folks that me met and shared our beer with.  Check out the full MLive video from the festival below.  Cheers!
