is there such a thing as an etsy genuis? if so, this is it.
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.
If you like craft beer AND variety, then you will have a busy summer if you live in the Ann Arbor area. Here is each one:
Salt Springs Brewery is opening in a former church building in Saline
Pointless Brewery & Theater After the wife gets a devastating lung cancer diagnosis, an Ann Arbor couple is opening a brewery/theater (cool idea. Sorry: Freep link)
Glasshouse Brewery will be opening on the west side of Ann Arbor off Liberty near Wagner road
Ypsi Ale House is set to open in downtown Ypsilanti sometime this summer
Craft beer enthusiasts, we have our work cut out for us.
EDIT: Thanks to BJNavarre for pointing out that there is (at least) a 5th one opening, also in Saline: Stony Lake Brewing
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.
Sat and watched that debacle during the Bend Oktoberfest yesterday. I didn't feel so bad at the end...
