I'm in South Bend, Indiana but I go to Bell's Brewery at least once a month I'd be glad to trade some Home Brews with you or anyone else for that matter send me a PM.

My wife is from Jenison, so I am in the Grand Rapids area quite frequently. I would be down to do some swaps, I'll send you a message next time I'll be in town. I have been meaning to check out the new homebrew shop in GR, O'Connor's. Have you been there yet?

Send me a message whenever you'll be around, I'm up at Bell's A LOT. I buy most of my ingredients at their homebrew shop. I have a few new beers that I've bottled recently or am about to bottle: farmhouse ale w/ Brett, Anchor Steam clone, Patersbier, wheat wine, and chocolate/oatmeal milk stout.

Default Hb4061

Here's an update on this bill.

November 11, 2011

Dear AHA, Brewers Association and Support Your Local Brewery Members,

Thanks to all of the calls and emails from supporters, House Bill 4061 has been passed by both the Michigan House (103 yeas, 4 nays) and Senate (38 yeas, 0 nays) and was signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder on November 10. The bill was supported by Michigan homebrewers and the AHA, and it allows homebrewers to serve homebrew at meetings and events held at Michigan breweries, bars and restaurants.

Until now, whenever a Michigan homebrew club met at a licensed establishment (microbrewery, brewpub or other establishment with a license to sell alcoholic beverages) for a club meeting, a homebrewing demonstration or a competition, they put their host's license at risk.

With the passage of HB 4061 these same hosts can now legally invite homebrew clubs and their members to participate in these activities. To ensure it is legal, a club needs written permission from the licensed establishment for their meeting or event.

Currently no "approved form" exists (guidance has been requested). For now, a letter that follows the intent of the bill must include:
The date and time of the event
The participating club
The location of the event
That the host acknowledges that it is not in control of unregulated beverages at its establishment (i.e. the club, not the host business, will be serving the homebrew), and agrees to assume liability under section 801(3) for the event.
Many thanks go to bill sponsor Representative Doug Geiss, who is also a homebrewer, and leading bill champion, AHA Governing Committee Chair Chris P. Frey of Saline, Mich.

Thanks for your support of Michigan homebrewers!

A friend of a friend actually works there but I have yet to go. I still like Siciliano's way too much. I usually stop in there after class 2 or 3 times a week to grab a few beers and maybe some other homebrew stuff if a brew day is coming up.

I'm a new brewer from Grand Rapids. Once I get a few more batches under my belt I'd love to do some swapping. I'm making the switch to AG on my next attempt. Once I'm a bit more familiar with that I'll let you know and we can swap. My GF's brother is a student at WMU so I go down to K-zoo a few times a year

O'Connor's is pretty good. You guys are LUCKY, GR has some of the best brews in the country. I miss the Grand Raggity only for that, don't miss ir for a single thing else lol.
