Default Greetings from Traverse City, MI

Hello everyone! I've been lurking around here for a while now. Just getting back into brewing after a few years away. Last time was more of a college "cool" thing to do. Now I'm studying it a little more and learning to do it without the assistance of a kit. I just had my first bottle of the IPA I made in early January and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I'm glad I found this community, it's already helped me immensly with becoming a more informed home brewer. I'm looking forward to learning a lot more!

Howdy, I'm going to TC on Friday (tomorrow) to help a friend check out some guitars and also to hit Right Brain to see how their beers are and to pick up a sack of Grain and maybe some hops. The guy there was kind enough to offer the grain to me because other supply shops in the area don't offer bulk. Perhaps he will be willing to open up some of his ingredients on a regular basis!

Also can't wait to get some cherries this year for a couple of cherry beers I am thinking about. Someone mentioned a Cherry Wit and I'm trying to decide how that could taste.

Welcome! TC is a great place, I grew up there and just had to say hi. Do take advantage of the cherries - I only realized what an advantage that is after leaving the area.

Thanks fellas! Traverse City is great! We moved here from Grand Rapids about a year ago and I had to leave behind Founders...my second home. I've been trying to find a stand in since I've been here, Right Brain isn't too bad, and they seem like coold guys running it. Short's in Bellaire is the best I've found up here. Too bad it's a bit of a drive from my house.

I'm trying to put together a good cherry beer for the friends that come visit this summer. Time to take advantage of living in the cherry capital!
