You seem to be well versed in brewing your own beer. I have done it myself a handful of times (not always successfully). Unfortunately it usually turns out to taste not very good and is more like a malt liquor. Do you know of any resources that I can read, or any tips of how I can get better?

Thanks.

regardless of whether any beer by the name actually exists.

I'd wear a shirt proclaiming Zoltan's Imperial Stout to a job interview.

My friend and I brewed up some porter for a fourth party a few years back, named it "Born on the Fourth of July Alabama Blacksnake" always kind of liked that name. I don't know what this has to do with a Michigan beer, just liked the name...Yeah, Ale to the Victors sounds nice.

Moxie - A light bodied IPA with unexpectedly powerful taste.

Shoelace Stout (or Shoelace Scotch Ale) - If you drink enough, you'll feel like you're made of dilithium too.

Brandon's Dram - A robust, high gravity porter that will lay you out before you know what hit you

Rollicking Brew - A sparkling ale that will make you reel (in a good way).

Winged Helmet Wit - Look, our bottle's got wings!

Biere de Garde-ner - A bit rough and immature right now, but give it a year or two to age, and it will win championships.

Schadenfreude Imperial Stout - Black as sin, filled with the rich flavor of roasted malt and Jim Tressel's broken dreams.

Apollo 15 Ale

Well it's going to be tough to beat Ale to the Victors..I really like that one. I'm thinking an IPA. Maybe use a small amount of flaked Maize in the process.

basically the first part of the process in making beer is "steeping" the grains. This is basically like making tea. You put your specialty grains (flaked maize) in a cheesecloth and steep it in hot water, just like making tea. So there will be no chunks..
