holy hell, this thread got big fast.

I will be there, my buddy Mike as of now is going too. My plan is to brew 5 gallons of our club barleywine so I can get 5 out of the oak barrel in a few months.

Need to get some beer kegged up and speed carb it this week to bring down and figure out what to bring for food.

Z is hassling me to cop out on the grilled cat and instead aim for pulled cat sandwiches. I'm still adamant about the chili and home tortilla chips, but spiciness is being compromised by the mixed crowd's tolerance, so I'll put out the siriacha sauce (Rooster sauce), habanero Tabasco and chopped jalapenos for those that are disappointed with the chili's lack of 'flair'.

Sounds great! If you don't mind, I will humbly request that you all stand down wind of me after you eat chili and drink all that beer. As a woman, I do not make stinkies, so I expect you to only stink out each other.

It's going to be such fun to finally meet you guys! I'm so looking forward to it.

Let me know what I can bring. My car is fairly small, but I have plenty of room in the back seat or trunk to bring odds and ends that might be needed. I'm loading up my IPOD with 50 brewcasts to keep me entertained during the drive.

I think I'd like to stop at a good beer store on the way down- I'll be driving through Grayling, Clare, Mt Pleasant, and East Lansing. Can anybody recommend a good place to pick up some Michigan craft beers? (We don't get them here- I know that according to my address I live in Michigan, but the distributors don't agree).

I can't help you with beer on that side of the state. But I'm sure HH could.

You're married, so no can do on the farts. We men reserve that sort of consideration for dating only. Once you're married, your stuck with it. But then I make stinkies either, so no worries...

As far as beer goes, If you are going through Mt. Pleasant, there is a place called Mountain Town station, which is a working railway station/restaurant/brewpub. They have very good food there, and the beer is, IMO, average for craft beer. They also have a new location, which is just a bar/brewery near Meijers Same beer, just more production for bottling and distribution. Although the beer, is just OK IMO, you might get a tour of the facitilities if you are lucky. I spoke with Jeff and Corina, bartenders.

Lansing has Michigan Brewing Company, actually in Webberville, nearby. I've been there on occasion and have enjoyed many of their beers. They make some nasty lighter stuff, mostly on contract, but their craft ales and stuff are very good. I know you are not a fan of Belgian beer of wheat, but they make Celis beers, and their Wit is my favorite. They also carry Homebrew supplies in the Things Beer store inside.

Nothing in Clare that I am aware of.

There is a place in Cadillac that is called a brewpub in google, but I called and they get their beer from a brewery in KZoo. He didn't know which one. The place wasn't technically open when I called. Probably a warehouse guy.

Grayling has the Big Buck brewery, and I haven't been there in a long time. The beer was not that great when I tried it years ago, but then my palate has probably evolved since then, and possibly their beer is different now too.

If you can't hit some of the Kzoo and GR breweries, I'd recommend stopping at a store and buying a few of their beers. Founders, Arcadia (Battle Creek), New Holland (Holland), all have great beer. And of course Bells has my favorite IPA. Founders should be releasing their Harvest Wet Hop Ale. OMG...

speaking of founders brewery they now have a new stout,,kentucky breakfast stout,,this is basically their breakfast stout aged in old JD barrels.


as far as finding beer stores yooper most any store will carry bells, or arcadia, dark horse etc. just stop in and ask i'd think.
dangnabbit i forgot to go to arcadia on monday and work the bottling line..they give out free samples when you do this and also send you home with a case or 2 of free beer (whatever was bottled that day basically).

That place is called Bear Claw. Their beer is made by Bells it's called Bear Claw Ale and IMO it sucks. The wife and I stopped there two weeks ago for lunch as we were headed to Tawas. The food was OK but the one beer that was "their beer" was not good.

If you get near GR there are a lot of places. Hop Cat is a must go to place. Rated 3rd best beer bar in the world. 47 craft beers on tap + one hand pull and 150+ bottles.
If you get to GR let me know the wife and I would be happy to take you out some place.
