A few days ago Mike O’Brien posted about a recent to Original Gravity on the Craft Beer in Michigan Yahoo group. I enjoyed reading it so I thought I would share it with you. I asked Mike to add a short introduction (he made it modest) for those who don’t know him.
I am Mike O’Brien – BrewGyver. I spend my days – and some evenings – helping breweries stay running. I did help Brad install the equipment at OG and was there the day I did the sampling to help Brad rebuild the brewhouse pump. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Brad and sampling a couple of his new beers. Brad’s Belgian offering is now all grown up. He has taken off his Training Wheels and is now serving 2-Wheeler Wit. A delicately balance beer with ‘just the right amount’ of spice.
Ez-Duz-It is his offering for a lighter IPA (4.2%) that is lacking nothing that you would expect in a hoppy IPA – great Amarillo character . . . and you can have more than one! 🙂
The latest addition of his BellyWasher (Scotch Ale) is nicely smokey with an addition of crystal rye?! If you think that his ‘famous’ 440 Pepper Smoker now has just a little bit more of a kick you are right. Brad added a couple of Habanero peppers to this batch – still super drinkable!
The current beer list on a chalk board -you can read from across the room 🙂 Brad’s always delicious sandwiches are now available on beer bread from the Erie Bread Co. Wednesday’s Erie Bread Co.’s beer bread is sold by the loaf. This week was Porter Rye – mmm! If you haven’t been there in a while – it’s time to go back! If you have never been to OG?! – shame on you! Look what you are missing!
