Last December, 129 Lounge and Saugatuck Brewing teamed up to hold a local homebrew competition where the winner would get to have his or her beer on tap for all to sample. This inaugural event had many tasty entries but the winning beer was a coffee stout brewed by the Muskrat Mashers’ own Dan DeSloover, named Night Grind. Dan won a brew day at Saugatuck Brewing where he brewed his beer, they kegged it and now 129 Lounge is putting it on tap this Saturday, May 9 at 7pm.
I am excited about a local homebrewer’s beer being on tap in Monroe. I seriously can’t remember when a Monroe brewer has had a beer on tap at a local bar. And since there hasn’t been a brewery in town since before Prohibition you may need to go back that far to enjoy a beer by a Monroe brewer.
It will be a good weekend to go to 129. The weather is supposed to be perfect for sitting out on their back deck. What a great way to toast to the fact that this long winter behind us.
129 Lounge is located at 129 E. Front St. in Monroe, MI.
