he grew a beard
Since, it's the bye week I felt that this thread is okay. If not, delete.
But next week, for the Maryland game, I will be making my first trip to Ann Arbor. Lately, when I travel to a new area or state, I have been trying to grab a six (or 4)-pack of the best beer from the area and bring it back home with me.
With the large amounts of drinking threads that flood this website weekly, I know that you all know your beer. So I've come here to make it easier on myself and ask for some of your help.
If I could grab one six (or 4)-pack to bring back home with me to MD, what should I get?
I don't have any preferences, anything is fine with me.
Its Friday, a bye week and the weather sucks. Im keeping it simple tonight. Samuel Adams Octoberfest. I know its November, but WTF !
What are you drinking ?
The 2-5-0, unranked Wolverines take on the American International Hornets tonight at 7:35pm at Yost.

Michigan has never faced AIC. AIC is out of the AHA and is based in Springfield, MA.
UM ranks #9 in US (#11 in world) among schools with rich alums (i.e., ones making a list of the 70,000 richest people). Here are the ranks in order of the number of alums making the list*::
You’d think that state schools like UM and Cal could rank even higher in producing self-made millionaires. For a variety of reasons, the other schools will probably have a higher proportion of students who later make the list because they have wealthy families.
*Note that I deleted the two internationals (Oxford, Cambridge) and one Harvard entry, since it is listed both for its business school and the entire university.
Business Insider crunches the numbers and Michigan makes the list:
#9 University of Michigan
2013 athletic department revenue: $143.5 million
Average Home Football Attendance: 111,592
Average Home Men's Basketball Attendance: 12,138
NCAA Championship Score: 3
Student Surveys on Athletics: 4.0 out of 5"School spirit is as good as it gets anywhere. Football game days are the most fun days of the entire year. The varsity facilities are incredible across the board. A++ Overall. On the flip side the intramural facilities are unimpressive. Most gyms are pretty old and overdue for a renovation. I don't use them often, but when I do they get the job done and no more. The best thing I can say about them is that they are there."
RS Jr Colin McAtee and RS Senior Tyler Arone were named first and second team All B1G, respectively. Congrats to both!
