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!

What year is this?
It's the Viking age.
