Detroit Beer Week, October 16-24

Michigan Expats - News - See All News

After the past couple of weeks have been dominated by Art Prize and UofM/MSU rivalry coverage, it's time to get back to one of our favorite topics here at Michigan Expats: Michigan Beer. 

There's a lot of exciting Michigan beer events coming up in Michigan that we want to let our readers know about in case you have plans to travel back home in the near future particularly as we are in the heart of homecoming season.

Goods news if you are going to be in the Detroit area in the next couple of weeks. The second annual Detroit Beer Week will begin this Saturday, October 16 and continue until it culminates in the Detroit Fall Beer Festival on October 23 in Eastern Market. There are great events scheduled throughout Detroit all week long.

I may be in Michigan that week and am going to make an effort to attend the beer festival or the after party at Atwater Block Brewery. If I make it, I'll be certain to post pictures and a full recap.

At the very least I always look forward to trying new seasonal Michigan brews that are not available here in the Washington D.C. market, and the Boffo Brown Ale from Dark Horse Brewing Co. of Marshall, MI is certainly high on my short list to try after reading Mark Sheppard's raving review. I may make a special stop in Marshall off I-69 and fill up a growler.

If you missed it, Mr. Sig and I recorded a series of podcasts tasting and reviewing beers from Bell's Brewing Co. out of Kalamazoo. You can also listen to those on iTunes (search: Michigan Expats). 

Let us know what your favorite Michigan breweries and beers are and what beers you would like us to review in the future.
