Default Metro Detroit Meetup/Brewery Tour 1/31/10

Would anyone be interested in a metro Detroit meetup?

I have a friend at Liberty Street Brewing Company in Plymouth who has agreed to give HBTers a tour. It's also a nice space so I figured we could do a tour and then get to know local HBTers. I've tentatively scheduled it for Sunday, Jan 31st at 1:00pm. Please post a note here if you're going to try to make it.

Sounds fun George. I'm not familiar with Liberty Street. I'll check the link out for sure. I'll let you know when it gets a bit closer to the date.



Edit: I've checked the link. Porter is my wifes favorite style. Tart cherry Porter sounds delicious. I may have to go there before the 31st.

The Tart Cherry Porter is sour, ask for a taster before you order a pint. I'm not saying it's bad (they won a medal for it) but it's a love-it-or-hate-it kind of beer. The rest of the stuff they have on tap is at http://ontapnow.com/supplierdetails.do?supplierId=20

George,

Have you heard if others are going to be joining? This is still a go right?

Geoff

I think we've got 3-4 here, I've heard a couple "maybes" in PMs and I've got a friend who's a lurker who'll be coming. It's still on, we'll see if we get more late confirmations.

Feel free to PM members from the area to bug them to come

FYI, if anyone wants some brewery fresh yeast bring a sanitized container with you. I checked with the brewer and he's happy to send you home with some. It sounds like it's Mauribrew ale yeast, which I haven't heard much about.
