Sooo, it’s November. What we’ve been up to? Another Michigan Brewers Guild fest under our belt (where we ran out of nearly all 40 beers we brought!), a successful Halloween at Greenbush, the first annual Kalamazoo Craft Beer Festival at Wings Stadium, a Greenbush/BuckleDown Brewing tap takeover at Roots Pizza and a few tastings underway too. We’re still pluggin’ away with Traverse City Beer Week coming up, a couple BIG tap takeovers and some other cool stuff. Before I spoil it all, here’s what’s up the rest of the month. We’ll see you somewhere, right?
In non-event-related news: the advent calendars are making a comeback this year (more details below & on our Facebook page) and look for our 4 winter seasons to make their return to the taproom chalkboards the day after Thanksgiving. I know it’s been a minute so as a quick refresher:
Jadis – 6.1% Winter White Ale
Mammoth – 8.3% Weizenbock
Apathy – 6.7% Oatmeal Stout
Ursus – 8.5% Winter Olde Ale
Okay, back to upcoming events…
