His weekend is the Michigan Brewers Guild Winter Beerfest at Fifth Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids. Anyone here going to be there and sees a guy in a kilt freezing his Jacobsons off, say hi. It'll be good to meet you.

Here's hoping it's -10F for ya!

Just kidding. I would have liked to go but Wife and I went to TC for the Microbrews and Music festival and didn't get tickets for this one. There is a slim chance that if a friend is going I might if I can scrounge up a ticket, but i"m not actively searching.

I went to the first one at 5th3rd and had a blast. Craft beer was still very new to me at that time. From what I've seen they've improved the site a lot since then.

Have fun!

SWMBO and I will be there.

I have been at the Summer festival several times and we even helped pour for Odd Side Ales this past one, but this will be my first Winter one. I was going to go last year but screwed up and waited too long to get my tickets (It's insane how quickly they sell out!)

Maybe you better wear a sock under your kilt just in case huh drgraffnburg? Have fun and Cheers!!
