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.
January 7, 2015
We called up Duncan Williams the head brewmaster of Grizzly Peak Brewing Company and because of that we saw it fit drink The Berserker for the Brew for the Crew from the North Peak Grizzly Series. The Berserker is a dark imperial stout with an intense aroma of black currants, with roasted coffee, and a hint of coffee. With a high ABV of 9% the beer is a great way to kick off the 2015 year.
Duncan Williams joins the show from Ann Arbor, Michigan where he is the head brewer at Grizzly Peak Brewing Company which is the brother of North Peak Brewing Company in Traverse City. Grizzly Peak has 8 different brews on tap daily and all craft beer is brewed on site. So if you in the Ann Arbor area we recommend you stop into Grizzly Peak and have a great craft beer paired with a great meal.
We start off our third segment with a little Brew News with Los Bob. Bob announces that Drink My Brewcast will be the main music sponsor of the 8th annual Suds and Snow winter beer festival at Timber Ridge Resort going on March 7th. Tickets are $25 for pre-sale and $35 at the door. Some great breweries will be attending this year including Short's Brewing Company, Founders Brewing, Bell's Brewery, Brewery Ferment, Brewery Terra Firma, Black Rocks Brewery, Stormcloud, Beggars Brewery, Jolly Pumpkin, North Peak Brewing Company, Brewery Vivant, Right Brain Brewery, The Filling Station Microbrewery, Bravo Zulu Brewing, and Tandem Ciders will be the lone cider vendor.
