Today I’m checking out Arbor Brewing Company’s Bliss Wheat Hefeweizen. A viewer suggested I try this out after really enjoying Frankenmuth Brewery’s Hefeweizen “The Hef”. How does it measure up? Watch and see what I think!
Today I’m checking out Rochester Mills “Juice Bigalow, Hop Gigalo”, a 6% abv juicy american IPA. With the recent surge of new England style IPA’s, this is another in that style (although they call it an american IPA.) While Rochester Mills is probably most known for their stouts, I’m really intrigued and interested in trying out how they spin the NE IPA trend. Does it meet expectation!? Watch and see!
Today I’m checking out Ore Dock Brewing’s Fresh Coast – a 7.5% ABV Belgian IPA from Marquette, Michigan. Nice sweetness and subtle spice sets it apart from the typical, traditional IPAs that I’m used to.
Drafting Table Brewing Company in Wixom, MI takes on the very versatile Cream Ale style with their Reserve Mal – an 4.8% Cream Ale. Cream Ales don’t seem to grab my attention like other styles do – does this one buck the trend?
Lake Brothers wants to position themselves as Michigan’s best regional lager – like what Shiner is to Texas and Yuengling to Pennsylvania. I don’t drink much lager, but this got my curiosity going.
Back at it again with Odd Side and another one of their Dank Juiciest. This time it’s the Mango Peach variety. How does it stack up to Passion Dank Juice and dat Dirty Dank Juice? Stay tuned to find out!
I’ve always avoided Goses and Sour beers in general due them sounding so un-appealing. Founders new Green Zebra Gose may be the one that turns the tide. Watch and find out what I think!
Psychedelic Cat Grass by Short’s is made and shipped as fresh as possible. The pack I picked up was actually bottled the same day I bought it. This triple hopped IPA beauty may be too piney for some fans, but it teases with enough citrus sweetness to win me over. This is my first review of a Short’s beer since their 20% sale to Lagunitas, and I’m going to be as objective as possible when reviewing their beers going forward.
Right Brain Brewery’s CEO Stout is a coffee stout with just enough up front sweetness to draw you in, and the coffee kick to keep you coming back for more.
Right Brain is one of the most inventive brewers in Michigan, and they need to be to survive with the abundance of other great breweries in the Traverse City area. CEO Stout is one of their mainstays, and after this review I can see why.
Frankenmuth Brewery is the oldest brewery in the state of Michigan, and today I try their flagship hefeweizen, “The Hef” – a 5.2% ABV beauty.
I pull out all the stops, including the weizen glass, and I show you the fanciest of fancy ways to pour them. Hefeweizens are known for their cloudy appearance which is due to the high volume of unfiltered wheat and yeast, which also help to contribute to the banana and clove flavors that they typically have.
Come check out The Hef with me.
