Default 1st annual Beer tasting in Big Rapids

I didn't think about posting about this before the actual event, so I guess I'll just chime in with my experience. I decided last minute to get a ticket. Someone hinted that Bells was going to be there, and I figured I don't go to enough tastings as it is, so I went. Here's who was there:

Tri City
Michigan Brewing Company
New Holland
Arbor Brewing Company
Mountain Town Station

I think that's the whole list... $18 gets you in with 25 tickets to small samples. Plenty of beer for me!

There were reps from most of the breweries, and a couple of distributors. I got to drop a hint to the owner of the nearby beer store that there are homebrewers out there who could use a good source of basic ingredients. Hope he decides to get back into it.

I also had the distributors say that they would get some special beers into the local beer stores. Things that I cannot find even in a good store like Grunst Brothers.

A good time was had, and I am feeling it this morning!

It's the most wonderful time of the year
There'll be much mistletoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When love ones are near
It's the most wonderful time of the year
