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!
