This past weekend I attended the 9th Annual Michigan Beer Fest, this being my fourth. It was a great time, with over 42 Michigan breweries in attendance pouring more then 200 beers.
My note-taking fell off dramatically this year, as I spent more time just enjoying the beers rather than dissecting them.
A few notables were there, I offer them to you:
CJ's Brewing Company's VAT33 Indian Pale Ale (Commerce Township)
Fort Street Brewery's Festivus 2006 - Sour Mash Ale (Lincoln Park)
Schmohz Brewing Company's Bone Crusher Stout (Grand Rapids)
And the best of the bunch: The Livery's Batch 50 IPA (Benton Harbor)
