Black Rocks Grand Rabbits

23Apr

Welcome to another episode of Drink My Brewcast the podcast where three Northern Michigan Bartenders breakdown a few microbrew and tell stories good and bad of the Traverse City service industry. Today we talk about a benefit for Keith Barnsdale who owns Keith's Cool Ride and was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer. Keith has bailed many of us out in the past and we are very saddened by this news. There is a benefit for Keith and his family going on at Union Street Station in Traverse City on April 27th at 3pm.

Today we review the Black Rocks Grand Rabbits for the Brew for the Crew sponsored by The Beverage Company. This is the  first Cream Ale we have ever reviewed and it gets a solid score from the Brewtenders.

We have a update on the third round of the brew brackets, a new trivia question, growl, happy hour, and Carly's Cuisine. We always appreciate you listening and hope to hear from you via our speakpipe app and email drinkmybrewcast@icloud.com.

Northern Natural Cider House Pt 2

9Apr

For the second part of episode 59 we decided to keep challenging our taste buds after an uninspired effort in last weeks IPA challenge. So we brought out the Jelly Beans. Of course we have some beer flavored jelly beans but we also have a few standards and a few jelly beans that were absolutely disgusting.

Our segments are strong in this show with a new Tip of the Week from Carly, a strong Growl from Shauny, and Bob reviews the first round of the beer bracket. We hope you enjoy this episode of Drink My Brewcast and remember if you have any comments or questions or just want to throw us a bone. Email us at Drinkmybrewcast@icloud.com.
