no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
A couple weeks ago, I put together a google map with all of the Michigan bars I'm aware of (and also everything from the spreadsheet that bouje has been maintaining.) The map is here.
Hopefully this will prevent the "where's the Michigan bar in Pittsburgh/Fresno/Topeka/wherever" threads that pop up every week, but if your favorite gameday hangout isn't on here, put it in the thread and let me know. I'll do my best to keep the map up to date.
Tonight Founders takes on Four Peaks brewing out of Arizona, who somehow took out Dogfish Head to make the finals. Currently Four Peaks is leading 50.5% to 49.5% Voting ends at midnight.
I learned that Bend, Oregon, has at least five outstanding microbrews. When you get the chance, sample any of the following:
1. Good Life Brewery
3. 10 Barrel Brewery
4. Deschutes (of course, they have been a mainstay.

ESPN Article highlights the 21 schools that currently sell beer at on-campus stadiums. The list includes a few Power-5 Conference schools (Syracuse, West. Virginia, Louisville) and one Big Ten School Minnesota.
First hand experience has me thinking that based on what I saw at the soccer match earlier this month... That in theory this should be something on the table at all schools for consideration. Conservatively at the soccer match I would not be surprised if 50,000 (probably many more than this) beers were sold in total at $10 a beer. That would be a good amount of revenue across football, basketball, etc.
I know there are other factors and opinions out there, but from what the old timers post on this blog and from what I know from my parents... Michigan Stadium used to be BYOB.
