Welcome to episode 93 of the Drink My Brewcast show and it's a throw back show. Were' doing Stumbles, and the Centurion even joins us in studio. Our interview is with Aaron Langtot Business Development Director of Rochester Mills Brewing Company and Founder Mike Plesz in Rochester, Michigan. Aaron and Mike joined us from sunny Florida which casts a cloud of envy over those in studio. The weather here in Traverse City has been frigid and terrible so we decided to splurge on the Brew for the Crew today with the TWO beers from the Perrin Killer Craft Series named "Kill Em All", and "With Kindness." These two beers get a favorable review and a not so favorable review from the Brewcast. Which ones? well you'll have to listen! We encourage you to splurge as well and try the Killer Craft Series from Perrin Brewing Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Welcome to another episode of Drink My Brewcast where interview the hard working people of the craft beer industry. Hosted by three local Traverse City bartenders and produced by a couple of Traverse City Musicians. We've been able to add a lot more interviews from around the country due to our good friend Skype and even though Cheboygan is only a few hours away, the weather has been nasty in Michigan lately and we've had to cut down on our traveling shows.
So via Skype we are happy to have the Head Brewer of Cheboygan Brewing Company Mike Eme on the show. Mike's a hilarious guy who happens to be a very talented brewer. We encourage you to stop into Cheboygan Brewing Company on your way up north to Mackinac Island or if your in Michigan they do have distribution through out the state.

We are back for another season Drink My Brewcast! I guess you would call it our third season since we started on January 2nd of 2013 but that's up to you. We hope you all had a solid holiday season but were ready to get back to drinking Michigan craft beer.
Thanks for listening to the final episode over 2014 and we are capping it off with our 12 best beers of the year according to Bob, Shaun, and Carly. Before we break down our 12 beers we stay consistent with our format and our Brew for the Crew is the Blacks Rocks North Third Stout. Blacks Rocks is a craft brewery in Marquette, Michigan which is gaining tons of momentum through out the Mid-West.
We are happy to have Shauny Boy back in studio to talk craft beer in Northern Michigan. Our brew for the crew today is the 4 Elf Winter Warming Ale from Darkhorse Brewing Company. The beer gets quite a reaction from our crew and it's the first Christmas themed beer we are reviewing in 2014.
We're back from a week off and missing Shauny Boy this week but we are pulling through and talking to Scott Isham, Head brewer of Harper's in East Lansing. But first we kick the show off with our brew for the crew which is The Big Lushious Stout from Founders Brewing Company. It clocks in at 7.4 ABV and it's Chocolate Raspberry Stout. Lushious is a brand new beer from Founders and we're hoping it stands up to KBS, Backwoods Bastard, and many more of their wonderful beers. Just a teaser, Bob and Carly absolutely love this beer.
It was great to get back in the studio today and talk good beer! Unfortunately we had to move our interviews to another day due to the now stop heap of snow we have been enduring here in Michigan, but we made the best of the show either way. We do have an interview for you to check out, and for once the crew was on the other side of the mic. The crew stopped by The Bear to chat with the Brew Crew and let those guys know what we are all about. Check out the interview at www.rock105.fm.
