The beer menu with commercial descriptions…

Founders (Grand Rapids, MI)

Dirty Bastard:Dark ruby in color and brewed withseven varieties of imported malts. Complex in finish withhints of smoke and peat, paired with a malty richness and a right hook of hop power to give it the bad attitude that a beer named Dirty Bastard has to live up to. Ain’t for the wee lads’ 8.5% ABV

Red’s RyePA: Serious hop bitterness along with unyielding grapefruit bouquet from the Amarillo dry-hop. Balanced with the malty richness of four varieties of imported Belgian caramel malts. Pours a spectacular crimson with a creamy tan head. A generous addition of rye malt accentuates a spicy crisp finish.ABV: 6.6%

Porter: Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It’s a lover, not a fighter. ABV: 6.5%

Pale Ale: A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle, this medium-bodied pale ale has a refreshing citrus flavor and a distinctive floral hop aroma due to the aggressive addition of hops during fermentation. You’ll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere. 5.4% ABV

Arcadia (Battle Creek, MI)

Angler’s Ale:Angler’s Ale is a strikingly authentic English-style Pale Ale. Medium-bodied and easy-drinking, this clean, crisp ale boasts well-balanced flavors of caramel, toffee, and toasted malt, with just the right amount of bitterness. A delicate herbal hop finish is provided by Goldings whole leaf hops

Loch Down:Step into the Scottish Highlands withthis authentic Strong Scotch Ale. A lovely and deep garnet color is joined by the aroma of plums and toffee in this unique and special ale. Brewed with Maris Otter malted barley from Crisp Maltings, Ltd. in England, the rich and full-bodied feel of this beer brings out flavors of caramel and roasted chestnuts, which is balanced with a clean and crisp alcohol finish, and just the right amount of lingering hop bitterness. 7.5 ABV

Whitsun: A wheat beer brewed with just the right amount of coriander, orange zest and Michigan honey which provides an earthy sweetness not often found in beers of this style.  Coriander and a light hop addition add balance (ABV: 6.2%)

Skye High Rye:
A West Coast-style Pale Ale with rye malt, Sky High Rye boasts a massive floral aroma of resinous hops. The hops contribute flavor notes of lemons, peaches, and pine needles, combined with the sweet, malty flavors of toffee and bread. Rye adds a pleasant peppery, spicy note like a fresh slice of pumpernickel bread. Very well-rounded and very drinkable, Sky High Rye will surely inspire adventure in all who taste it. 6.0% ABV

Mt Pleasant Brewing Company (Mt. Pleasant, MI)

Iron Horse IPA:Don’t be shy, try it. Like any good I.P.A. this one has plenty of hop presence but not so much that it is not approachable by our hop-weary friends. Instead of “biggering and biggering” like so many I.P.A.’s these days we are keepin’ it real with a beer that will make you want to drink more than just one.

Coal Stoker Blackberry Ale:This brew is another top seller. Created by accident, a chance blending of raspberry wheat and stout, we recreated this crowd pleaser for distribution. Call it a mad scientist production, call it a miracle, call it dumb luck if you want; we call it serendipity

Railyard Raspberry Wheat: This is a beer brewed with raspberries, not a raspberry beer. The real raspberry juice we use adds something special to this wheat ale rather than taking something away. It can be, and is, enjoyed by all types of beer drinkers. It especially pairs well with fruit salads or just about any type of dessert

Steam Engine Stout:
Devout beer lovers will love this dark, rich, full bodied stout. We like to say that our Steam Engine Stout is a classic, sweet stout – it is, but this brew goes above and beyond your average stout.

Arbor Brewing Co. (Ann Arbor, MI)

Dark Corner: A Corner Brewery/Dark Horse collaboration beer click here for more details. American Strong Ale 7.5% ABV

Brasserie Blonde:
Gorgeous copper-orange ale. Rich, enticing aroma of oranges and lemongrass. Crisp and refreshing on the palate. A perfect blend of malt, spice and sweet & zesty hints of citrus  5.5%

Strawberry Blonde:
Strawberries are Spring’s first fruit.  They announce the end of the long Midwest winter and welcome the lazy days of summer.  They herald a season of weekends at the lake, walking barefoot through the grass, and whiling away the afternoon at your local beer garden. Be sure to savor your Strawberry Blonde while it lasts because like a Michigan summer, it’ll be gone before you know it. (7.75% ABV)

Red Snapper:
A deep reddish brew with medium body and carbonation. This toasty, malty, and dry pale ale has a depth of hop taste and acidity in the palate and finish. 4.9% (ABV)

Corner Brewery to Get a Green Renovation

Chris Nass emailed me an article from Concentratemedia.com about Matt and Rene Greff’s new plans for Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti.

After entering into their first international brewery franchise in Bangalore, India, Matt and Rene Greff are uncapping other ambitious plans for the Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti. This time it’s a $1 million complete green energy renovation and new addition to the premises.

Still in the final stages of obtaining necessary approvals from the city, they hope to break ground on the addition before the end of April, says co-owner Rene Greff. The 2,000-square-foot pre-fab steel structure will be used for storage and a new bottling line, which will allow for the packaging of product in advance. The company has been packaging to order, which was causing lag time and difficulty in keeping up with demand.

“We have been experiencing production growth between 20-30% over the last couple of years and we definitely think that will continue and could even accelerate,” she notes.

The new addition will have a ground water heating and cooling temperature-controlled system and solar tube lighting. Those eco-friendly features will be echoed in the main building as well, which will be undergoing a green energy renovation with the same ground water heating and cooling system and a combination of solar thermal and photovoltaic panels for heating and electricity. New offices for management will also be constructed there. Greff hopes the addition and move will be done by mid-May and the rest of the green renovations by July.

The Greffs also have a $75,000 installation of groundwater, solar, and photovoltaic technologies planned for their Arbor Brewing Company brewpub in downtown Ann Arbor.

Energy cost savings should in the area of 30-50%, Greff figures, and taking into account the federal tax grants and incentives from DTE, a five-year payback period on the project. “It’s a pretty incredible investment,” she says.

Michigan First to Pass the 21st Amendment on April 10, 1933

<div class=\"postavatar\">Michigan First to Pass the 21st Amendment on April 10, 1933</div>

This Sunday, April 10, is the anniversary of Michigan ratifying the 21st amendment. It was the first state to do so. To commemorate this I thought I would run an encore post from 2008. Is it still an encore post if the only one calling for it is the writer of the post? Probably not but here it is anyway.

The big topic of conversation in 1933 was beer. The papers were full of daily updates of when we would be allowed to legally imbibe. Articles ran helping people brush up on the terminology of beer and even propaganda that sided with the “wets”. Some states were able to drink 3.2 beer on April 7th but Michigan had to wait until May 11th. However, Michigan did lead the way by being the first state in the Union to pass the 21st Amendment- by a vote of 99 to 1 with the lone vote being from the now great beer city of Hastings, MI. The lone dry delegate, Eugene Davenport, did get a dinner in his honor from the rest of the delegates for his “dry” vote. Maybe it was to honor his steadfastness in sticking to his guns on the issue. Or maybe they just felt sorry for the guy. In any case, thank goodness attitudes have changed in Hastings or their would be no Walldorff Brewpub and Bistro.

The story goes back to February of 1933 when the U.S. Congress introduced the 21st Amendment which repealed the 18th Amendment. The vote would be taken by having a special convention (the first of its kind) in each state. The citizens would elect predetermined “wet” or “dry” candidates that would only be discussing the matter of repealing the 18th Amendment. The amendment would have to pass by a three-fourths majority of the states in the Union. That meant that 36 states to would have to give their approval in order for the 18th Amendment to be repealed. That number was reached on December 5,1933.

For Michigan, the vote was a forgone conclusion. The citizens had already repealed the state constitutional provision in November. They also overwhelmingly voted for the wet candidates on the April 3, 1933 special election. All that was left was the official vote. Monroe’s representative was Rev. Henry F. R. Frincke, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church. When the time came to serve the citizens of Monroe he voted “wet”. Thank you Henry, job well done.

The images shown here were taken from various issues of the Monroe Evening News from March through May of 1933. The first image is of an article explaining all the terms that are associated with beer. The second is a graph of where the money will go for each beer you drink.

Irish Immigrant Owned Brewery in 19th Century Monroe

 

I am rerunning an older post because Saint Patrick’s Day is this week and I thought it would be nice to highlight an Irish immigrant that owned a brewery in Monroe during the mid 19th century. His name was Michael Phelan and I am not sure if he is orange or green but I know he was born in Ireland and is the only Irish brewery owner I could find in Monroe’s history.

The Monroe City Brewery was short lived but it had one unique thing that the other Monroe breweries didn’t have. The owner/brewery wasn’t German. He was born in Ireland. Brewers in early America were from English speaking nations and brewed Ales. Whiskey was popular in both America and Ireland in the early 1800s and many Irish immigrants made whiskey. Toward the middle of the 19th century German immigration changed the face of brewing and drink in America and turned America into a lager drinking nation. One might wonder though why weren’t more Irish brewers popping up in the United States? After all, Irish immigration was high. We’ve all heard the stories of Irish peasants leaving Ireland due to the Potato Famine. Maybe that is one of the main reasons right there. Perhaps Irish immigrants were too financially strapped to open their own business upon settling in America. On the other hand, most Germans Monroe City BreweryMonroe City Brewery Adimmigrated to the United States for political and religious reasons. The latter was true especially for German Catholics. Another factor that could have contributed to German brewers outnumbering their Irish counterparts was the sheer number of German immigrants. German immigration doubled to around 950 thousand between 1851-1860 surpassing Irish immigration. While Irish immigration leveled off, German immigration peaked between 1871-1880 reaching almost 1.5 million people.

All of the Monroe breweries I could find were owned by people of German descent. One exception to this was Michael Phelan, owner of the Monroe City Brewery. I couldn’t find out much about Michael other than the fact that his brewery stood on the north-side of Front Street and east of the lower bridge. I believe it would’ve been somewhere near the intersection of Wadsworth and Front. Phelan ran his brewery during the onset of a German brewery boom.

Sometime between 1863 and 1870 Phelan got out of the brewing business and by 1870 he was working as a surveyor/engineer.

He brewed a Stock Ale, Brown Stout, Porter and “Present Use Ales”. He also brewed lagers. I attached an ad from 1863 which shows that, yes, back then beers were brewed for family use. Porters and brown stouts were styles that an Irish immigrant would have brewed. The interesting one there is the “Present Use Ales”. This beer is an ale version of a lager and today is considered a Cream Ale which is a Light Hybrid Beer. In the 19th century this was an ale brewer’s answer to the lager and was basically an American Lager with a top fermenting(ale) yeast strain. Phelan must have been hedging his bets because the ad claims he brewed both “Present Use Ales” and Lagers.

Phelan died in 1909 in Chicago. I believe after Michael left brewing that the brewery itself became Van Miller Brewing. I’m still working on some definitive information on that one. One thing that is for sure – that along OBrien Street with Wahl Brewing Co. and Laplaisance’s Roeder Brewery, Front and Wadsworth was another location that had a brewery.

Monroe had many other breweries in the mid 19th century and I still plan on digging for more stories. Here are a couple of teasers for you: A Monroe born brewer who opens his own brewery in another town?and of course (dum dum dum!) another brewery fire!

2 Interesting Beer Reads

Rob passed two articles on to me that I thought were interesting. He would have posted them himself but he is too busy being our homebrew club president and tomorrow is our meeting. The first is from the Washington Post and is an article about their upcoming Beer Madness 2011. It is definitely worth the read.

The second is a press release from the National Beer Wholesalers Association and is about the economic importance of the business of beer. Since it is from NBWA it is a  slanted (toward the distributor) look at the Michigan brewing industry.  It downplays the breweries and I find it hard to believe that the 80 plus Michigan breweries only employ 484 people. It  is posted below.  It’s definitely an interesting read if nothing else. The timing of this press release at a time when state governments are looking for new revenue streams can’t be coincidental.

New Study Shows Beer Industry Contributes $5.2 Billion Annually to Michigan’s Economy

 Despite Economic Downturn, Data Shows Quality Jobs, Solid Wages, and Overall Economic Impact in Michigan

 WASHINGTON, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A new economic impact study shows America’s beer industry, made up of brewers, beer importers, beer distributors, brewer suppliers and retailers, directly and indirectly contributes $5.2 billion annually to Michigan’s economy. Commissioned by the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) and the Beer Institute, the study shows that the industry generates nearly 56,437 jobs in Michigan – which accounts for $1.8 billion in wages and benefits. The industry also contributed $1.1 billion in the form of business, personal and consumption taxes in 2010.

 “As independent businesses, America’s 3,300 licensed beer distributors are proud to provide more than 98,000 quality jobs with solid wages and great benefits to employees in every state and congressional district across the country,” said Larry Del Papa, president and CEO of Del Papa Distributing Company, Inc. in Galveston, Texas, and chairman of NBWA. “Beer distributors are deeply rooted in their local markets, so it’s only natural that they work hard to keep their communities safe – especially by fighting underage drinking and drunk driving.”

 “Brewers across the country, large and small, remain an integral part of their communities. Not only do they promote alcohol responsibility programs for local retailers, schools and families in Michigan, but, as this new study shows, they also create sustainable jobs and important tax revenues that contribute to our nation’s economy,” said Dave Peacock, president of Anheuser-Busch and chairman of the Beer Institute. “America’s brewing industry continues to play a significant role in supporting the economy in each and every state.”

 According to the study, the beer industry directly employs 36,154 people in Michigan, paying them $926.9 million in wages. The 130 beer distributors in Michigan employ 3,163 people. Large and small brewers and beer importers employ approximately 484 people. Beer sales help support roughly 32,506 jobs at licensed retailers, which include supermarkets, convenience stores, restaurants, bars, stadiums and other outlets.

 “In addition to providing quality jobs with solid wages, the three-tier beer distribution system provides transparency and accountability while offering American consumers with tremendous choice and variety – nearly 13,000 different labels of beer – at a great value,” added NBWA President Craig Purser. “This time-tested, effective system of state controls, in which America’s beer distributors play a critical role, works to ensure alcoholic beverages are sold only to licensed retailers who in turn are responsible for selling only to adults of legal drinking age,” added NBWA President Craig Purser.

 “These numbers demonstrate that our industry continues to play an integral role in providing jobs and revenue necessary to heal our recovering economy,” said Joe McClain, president of the Beer Institute. “For this reason, it is important that state and federal officials consider equitable tax policies that do not unduly harm an industry that aids economic growth.”

 Nationally, the beer industry directly and indirectly contributes more than $223 billion annually to the U.S. economy and provides more than 1.8 million jobs – generating nearly $71.2 billion in wages and benefits. The industry also paid $44.7 billion in business, personal and consumption taxes in 2010. Consumption taxes included $3.6 billion in federal excise taxes and $1.7 billion in state excise taxes and $5.9 billion in state and local sales taxes. 

 In addition to strengthening the U.S. economy, the industry plays a vital role in promoting responsible consumption of its products. Brewers, importers, and independent beer distributors, licensed at both the state and federal levels, dedicate significant resources to develop public safety, education and prevention campaigns and to promote federal and local programs to help reduce underage drinking and drunk driving. These efforts, along with those of parents, law enforcement, federal and state alcohol beverage regulators, educators, and other community groups, have helped contribute to declines in underage drinking and drunk driving for nearly three decades, according to government data.

 The Economic Impact study was conducted by John Dunham & Associates based in New York City and covers data compiled in 2010. The complete study, including state-by-state and congressional district breakdowns of economic contributions, is available at Beer Serves America, www.BeerServesAmerica.org

 The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) represents the interests of 3,300 licensed, independent beer distributor operations in every state, congressional district and media market across the country. Beer distributors are committed to ensuring alcohol is provided safely and responsibly to consumers of legal drinking age through the three-tier, state-based system of alcohol regulation and distribution. To learn more about America’s Beer Distributors, visit http://www.nbwa.org.

 The Beer Institute, established in 1986, is the national trade association for the brewing industry, representing both large and small brewers, as well as importers and industry suppliers. The Institute is committed to the development of sound public policy and to the values of civic duty and personal responsibility: www.beerinstitute.org.

Michigan Beer Spotlight: Bell’s Winter White Ale

I have decided to change up our Michigan beer spotlight post a little bit by making it  less of a tasting. I will also be adding a song that is currently boring a hole through my head. I am hoping to do these more often than I have.

This post’s beer is Bell’s Winter White. I have been enjoying this beer a lot this winter and even though Spring is almost here, there is still time to enjoy it.

The appearance is a cloudy light straw yellow with a foamy, quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is slightly citrusy with hints of banana along with other fruits and some clove. The flavor is what I really love. The sweet malts with fruity hints along with the slight tartness hits me in my beer sweet spot. Other flavors that are in the taste profile are clove, banana and citrus.  There is little to no hoppiness. The beer has a medium body and the mouth feel is slick yet is still has a bite and feels great on the tongue.

Don’t be fooled by the winter in the title of this beer it can be enjoyed all year long (at least while you can get your hands on it.) The medium body makes it very drinkable and the initial sweetness accompanied by a hint of tart makes this beer uniquely enjoyable. Look for the price of this beer to be marked down a little in the next few weeks since spring is only a month away. If not, try to convince the store to do so by telling them they need to make room for Oberon.

Kuhnhenn White Cranberry Wine

<div class=\"postavatar\">Kuhnhenn White Cranberry Wine</div>


Okay, I can hear it now: “They’re only three days into their Advent Beer Calendar (with emphasis upon the word BEER) and they’re featuring a wine?! Don’t tell me they’ve already run out of good ideas for beers to feature. They’re really losing their touch. What gives?”

Not to worry, I’ve been told there are still plenty of great beers in the line up (or at least a few…Kevin still has more beer shopping to do this weekend.) No…tonight we decided to feature this wine because: 1.) Cranberries fit perfectly with the festive holiday spirit of this advent series 2.) Some people may not know that Kuhnhenn, one of the best  breweries in metro Detroit also makes excellent wine and 3.) We had a bottle in our cellar already, it tastes really damn good and I wanted an excuse to drink it.  So there!

This was actually the first Kuhnhenn wine that I was introduced to and it wasn’t through a fellow beer geek. It was through my mom, a wine connessieur. I was surprised on many levels. For one I didn’t even know that Kuhnhenn had a winery and although I new that they were one of the top breweries in the region (with such fine beers as Simcoe Silly- Kevin’s favorite- and my personal favorite Creme Brulee Stout). Also, although I do like wine I prefer dry reds and whites so I’ve never been a big fan of fruit wines which usually come across as too syrupy sweet or sugary.  However, Kuhnhenn’s White Cranberry is neither.

This wine is actually a White Cranberry Pinot Gris which gives it a definite sweetness however this sweetness is perfectly balanced by a light mild tartness (with apple and pear notes) and finishes very dry and clean. It’s not a pretentious or overly complicated wine. It is very laid back and easy to drink. The cranberry makes it festive enough to bring to share with relatives at Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner (turkey or roasted pork would be excellent pairings with this dish – probably not ham). It’s  guaranteed to  be a hit. However, you don’t necessarily have to save this for the holidays like you would with a port wine or something heavier.  It tastes just as good chilled and drank on your back porch on a hot summer night.

So whether you’re a beer drinker who still appreciates wine and is looking to change it up a bit around the holidays, or you’re a beer drinker with a signficant other who’s much more into wine. I’d highly recommend checking out not just the White Cranberry, but Kuhnenn’s complete list of wines. The hardest part  once you get hooked iw deciding whether or not your going to drink wine or beer when you make a visit to the Kuhnhenn pub. Or, as in my case,  if you’re going to venture into both, figuring out just who’s going to be driving you home.  Thanks Kevin!

WOLVERINE STATE BREWING CO. OPENS IN ANN ARBOR

Michigan’s newest craft microbrewery opens its doors to the public Friday, November 5, 2010.  Located on the west side of Ann Arbor, The Wolverine State Brewing Company has been contract brewing Wolverine Premium Lager for three years, with distribution throughout the state.   The new 7000 sq. ft. facility, which will specialize in micro-brewed lagers, will feature seven unique brews on tap when the doors open on.

Owners Matt Roy, Trevor Thrall and E.T. Crowe hired head brewer Oliver Roberts in 2009 and purchased a steam-heated, 10-barrel, two-vessel, combi-tank system from the Wolf Rock Brewing Co. in Keystone, Colorado, shipping it across country in early 2010.  The elegant copper-clad system, made by Liquid Assets as a “showpiece” brewery, also includes four fermenters and five serving vessels/bright tanks.  Once the lease for the old appliance warehouse space was signed in January 2010, work commenced to turn the empty rooms into a fully functional commercial brewery and Tap Room. 

The Tap Room will be open seven days a week and features darts, foosball, televisions, many seating arrangements including tables featuring Michigan nautical maps, a comfortable couch and chairs area and a 40-foot, custom-made bar.  As a traditional “tap room,” there is no kitchen, but dry snacks including hot pretzels will be available.  There is also an extensive “West Side Menu of Menus” that beer-drinking patrons can use to order Chinese food, pizza, sandwiches or salads delivered from local restaurants. 

Wolverine Premium Lager, which is available in many retail outlets including Kroger, Meijer, and Busch’s; many package stores; and in several bars and restaurants, will be joined on tap by:
Big House Brown (lager)—3.7% ABV/24 IBUs
The Wench’s Westside Wheat (ale)—3.8% ABV/18 IBUs
Insolent Mink IPA (ale)—6.4% ABV/67 IBUs
Pride of Biscuitville Lager—6% ABV/41 IBUs
Gulo Gulo Northwest Lager—6.9% ABV/59 IBUs
emOATable Lager—5.7% ABV/36 IBUs

Hours of operation will be:
Monday-Thursday 3-11 p.m.
Friday-Saturday noon-midnight
Sunday noon-5 p.m.
The Tap Room is available on a limited basis for small private parties.
