    The Michigan Brewer’s Guild throws, arguably, the most well-respected beer festivals in the state. They’re known for their yearly summer fete that takes place at Riverside Park in Ypsilanti as well as an autumnal affair held at Eastern Market. Their events almost always sell out. 

    Tomorrow the 10th annual Winter Beer Fest starts and surprisingly there are still tickets available for the Friday night portion of the festival (tickets for Saturday are sold out). Here’s the catch though, folks, Winter Beer Fest takes place in Comstock Park, which is just north of Grand Rapids.

    The Friday portion runs from 3 to 7 p.m., so if you can wrangle the day off, it might be worth the nearly 1000 different craft beers that will be available to sample. Over 100 Michigan craft breweries will be on-site with their goods and there will be music, food, and other entertainment. 

    Click here to grab tickets while they still last. They’re $45 plus a $4 service fee for buying them online.

    Almost time for the Craft Brew Races!

    click to enlarge

      IT’s BECOME commonplace to see two seemingly disparate things handed out together at road race finish lines: Medals and cups of beer.

      The science behind rehydrating with beer may be mixed, but a Venn diagram showing individuals who participate in athletic endeavors has a sizable wedge that overlaps with those who enjoy knocking back a few cold ones.

      Typically, the free finish line beer has “light” or “ultra” appended to the brewery name. These are thin mouthfeel, low-calorie beverages that simulate only a small part of the experience of drinking a traditional German lager. The team at Craft Brew Races saw an opportunity to do something more ambitious. They developed a race series that doesn’t provide a gratis cup of yellow fizzy water at the finish line, but instead has a full craft beer festival awaiting the worthy finishers.

      The combination 5K and craft beer festival makes its Savannah debut on Sunday, March 15 and will be held at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center. The race starts at noon and the festival commences immediately thereafter and lasts until 4 PM. It’s a “21 and over” only event. Tickets can be purchased for the run and festival, just the festival, or as a designated driver at http://craftbrewraces.com/savannah.

      There will be a strong local influence, with at least fourteen of the 30+ breweries in attendance based in Georgia. The race features individual and team awards as well as a costume contest.

        Founder Matt Gray of Gray Matter Marketing sat in on Episode 56 of the Brew / Drink / Run podcast to talk about Craft Brew Races. Here are some highlights from the conversation:

        Brew / Drink / Run: Whose idea was it to put running and the beer festival concept together?

        Matt Gray: “We saw opportunities in road races and beer festivals, and after a year of putting on both, we saw a great crossover in people attending both events. Beer and running go hand in hand.”

        How do you decide which breweries will be at the festival?

        MG: “We’ve had the opportunity to reach out through social media to a lot of folks. We pretty much target every brewery in the geographic area where our event is being held. We reached out to all the Savannah-based breweries first. We’ve had a great response.

        We buy all the beer from the craft breweries. Whether you’re a small brewery like Second Self or a big nationwide brewery like Sam Adams. We purchase the beer because we want to show our respect to the brewers for the craft that they’re creating for us. The race and festival generate enough money for us to sit back and go “we did a great thing here;” but it really is important for us to give back to the brewers and make sure they feel not just welcome, but that we’re celebrating what they do and what they’ve brought to the local economy. As a small business, it’s important for us to share in that.

        We also partner with the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild… In places like Savannah and even Charleston, giving back is hopefully going to mean big things in the future as the emphasis on local breweries becomes more important to the state’s economy.”

        How did Savannah come on your radar?

        MG: “Savannah is obviously a beautiful destination. That’s a great reason to come there. We know the running community is very strong and the Rock and Roll Marathon has been very popular. But personally, I have relatives through my wife who live down there and it’s a tremendous excuse to come down and visit them. It worked out when we reached out to the Savannah Sports Council and travel and tourism bureau and were welcomed with the concept from the outset, which was a huge thing for us. We’re very, very happy with the positive response we’ve had.”

        The Savannah race is happening on the Sunday before St. Patrick’s Day. Did that influence your choice of dates at all?

        MG: “Actually, it did not. We have a variety of other races and festivals that we produce and it just happened to be that weekend was a target weekend where the convention center was open. As an Irish-American, I’m very excited to be down there. Strangely enough, it was more coincidental than you might think.”

        Coincidence or not, expect a strong turnout for Craft Brew Races’ first-ever Savannah event on March 15. Between the local beer and running communities and the influx of tourists for the holiday week, this promises to be a very well-attended festival, and hopefully one that will return in 2016.

        Center City Bloggers Offer Readers A Tasty Trek Through Philadelphia

        By Chelsea Karnash

        PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Hungry?

        If you’re not already, you will be after taking a look at the blog 22nd Philly.

        From zeppolis at (of course) Zeppoli to a New Orleans-inspired sandwich at Plenty Café to banh mi battles between two Philly bakeries, married couple and Center City residents Bradd and Kristy have eaten it all with gusto – and taken some pretty droolworthy pics.

        “We launched the blog in 2008 and it had its fits and starts before we really got going, but we finally began posting regularly in January 2010, so we’ll say officially it’s been five years,” Kristy says.

        The couple says the idea for 22nd Philly came to them while they were carbo-loading for the Broad Street Run at D’Angelo’s Italian restaurant back in the spring of 2008.

        “We realized that we went out to eat in Philly every weekend (and sometimes during the week) but didn’t have any way to keep track of where we ate, what we liked,” Kristy explains.

        They started writing about their meals in Philadelphia, including both the amazing and the not-so-great ones. That honesty – along with some great reviews and those aforementioned photos — is part of 22nd and Philly’s charm. What’s more, the pair doesn’t just stick to big-name restaurants and newbies; Bradd and Kristy also seek out lesser known spots, including “BYOBs and beer festivals.”

        Five years after they started blogging, 22nd Philly now has thousands of followers on social media, mostly via Twitter.

        “Truthfully, we don’t post about a lot of the places we eat because we just don’t have time,” Kristy admits. “We really encourage people to follow us on [social media], where we post nearly every day with photos and quick tidbits on all sorts of delicious bites around Philly, or wherever we travel.”

        One thing they’re partial to? Sandwiches.

        “Philadelphia is a sandwich town, so in addition to reviewing restaurants, we often write about all the great sandwiches here. And that’s more than just cheesesteaks! There are so many excellent hoagies, roast pork and other sandwiches.”

        “We are also very passionate about Italian cooking/restaurants because of Bradd’s heritage and family focus on cooking,” Kristy adds. “He created a series of posts called the ‘Nana Test’ to compare Philly’s many great Italian BYOBs to the experience of his grandmother’s cooking at home. Zeppoli was our latest Nana Test review and the first-ever perfect score.”

        And while the duo says the city is “exploding with new energy and new people” and they “couldn’t be more excited about Philadelphia’s emergence on the national food scene,” they’ll soon have something even more fulfilling to focus on than food.

        “We’re expecting a new baby in May,” Kristy says. “So our perspective on eating out is about to hit a new level!”

        To read more on Kristy and Bradd’s culinary quests, visit the blog or follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

        Bulls, Mavs to play NBA preseason game in Lincoln

        The Allan Parsons Project is going to get some serious play here in late October.

        A day before the Nebraska Cornhuskers host Chicago-based Northwestern, the Chicago Bulls will take the court at the Pinnacle Bank Arena on Oct. 23 in a preseason matchup with the Dallas Mavericks.

        Assuming that team rosters don’t change too much — last week’s NBA trade deadline shows you can’t assume that, by the way — that will bring Creighton grad Doug McDermott back to Nebraska to rain McBuckets upon the heartland. Oh, and maybe Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, Dirk Nowitzki, Chandler Parsons, Mark Cuban and Benny the Bull.

        Tickets for the preseason game run from $18 on the low end to $203 on the not-so-low end. They go on sale Feb. 27 at 10 a.m. For more information, go to pinnaclebankarena.com, nba.com/bulls or mavs.com.

        Greetings from Columbia, MO

        My name is Will and I’m from a small town called Hillsboro, Missouri. I currently live in Columbia, Missouri. A town in which the craft beer scene is alive and booming for the small college town that it is.

        A little about myself for those who are interested. I have been drinking beer probably since the age of 17 or so, and in that time, it was primarily Bud Light. Frankly, it was the easiest to get and cheap to boot. The more I went to parties, and further headed off to college, I got my first taste of a beer that wasn’t your typical Bud Light, in that of a Blue Moon. I really enjoyed the flavor and wondered what else was out there that I could try that was different. This led me to start hitting up the local World Market to which I would make random six packs of all kinds of stuff. This is where my obsession began.

        Every once in awhile, while at bars, I would still indulge myself in Bud Light, Coors Light, Miller, etc, but if I was drinking at my house, going to parties, or any kind of get-togethers, I was always the guy to bring the “weird” stuff. I am currently 28 years old, and have been using an app on my phone called Untapped since August 2014, which I assume most people on here are familiar with, and since that time, I have tried 500+ different beers. And I have recently attended my first bottle share, and this coming summer, I hope to attend some beer festivals. It is a very exciting time to be a fan of craft beers, and I couldn’t be happier about all the wonderful new beers I have gotten to try.

        I hope to be involved in some trades on this site, as well as stories, recommendations, and other things that will help me in finding the new and most exciting beers to try. I hope to hear from a lot of you.

        Cheers to all!

        Snommegang aims to offer frosty fun in Oneonta – Press & Sun

        There’s no getting around it: February has been awfully cold this year. So let’s give it a proper sendoff by raising a glass to welcome in March — and, not too far off, the start of spring.

        On Saturday, Oneonta will play host to the second annual Snommegang International Beer Festival. Presented by America on Tap, a leading producer of premium craft beer festivals, in partnership with Cooperstown’s Brewery Ommegang, the event promises to warm the hearts of beer lovers from around the region.

        “Snommegang generated so much enthusiasm in Oneonta last year, people almost didn’t even notice the Polar Vortex right in the middle of it,” said Bill Wetmore, general manager at Brewery Ommegang, which is located on 136-acre farmstead in nearby Cooperstown. “We were absolutely thrilled to bring such a unique event to life in Oneonta and are excited to partner this year with America On Tap as it will allow us to even further amplify the energy, fun, and great craft beer.”

        Brews on tap

        Oneonta’s Main Street will be closed from Ford Avenue to Chestnut Street, with the events taking place under a series of heated tents. Besides Brewery Ommmegang, the event will feature products from more than 30 other regional breweries, including Dryden’s Bacchus Brewing, Glen Falls’ Davidson Brothers Brewing, Connecticut’s Two Roads Brewing, Cooperstown Brewing and several others. Each will offer at least two of its best beers at the event.

        A large heated tent in Muller Plaza will feature music and entertainment, and is open to the public free of charge. To gain admission to the beer-tasting tents, you will need to present your ticket and a valid government issued ID verifying your age as over 21. (Arrive 30 minutes prior to the event to allow enough time for ID checks.)

        Advance tickets to the tasting portion of Snommegang are $50 each, which includes a souvenir sampling glass, and are available online at Snommegang.com. Day-of-event tickets will be $55, $40 for students with a valid ID. The tasting session will conclude at 6 p.m. and be followed by additional beer dinners and tap takeovers at Oneonta bars.

        Dining and lodging

        Food will be available for purchase from the many restaurants on Main Street, including the Red Caboose Restaurant and Bar (267-4966), Prime 289 (353-7032), Boudreaux ‘N’ Thibodeaux’s (431-9044), Alfrescos (432-8466) and others. If you stay overnight, you can pick up breakfast the next morning at the Latte Lounge (432-6244), Capresso Coffee Bar (433-5233), Autumn Café (432-6845) on Main Street, or at Soda Jerks Diner (458 Chestnut St., 267-4792) Sandy’s Diner (5626 County Route 7, 267-4792).

        If you want to stay overnight in Oneonta, the city has many chain hotels, including Clarion Hotel, Courtyard by Marriott, Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn, as well as several smaller hotels and bed and breakfasts.
