Wolverine State Brewing Co. – A Sommbeer visit and review

Your vote counts!

Your vote counts!Wolverine State Brewing, located in Ann Arbor Michigan My buddy, Renee from Ypsilanti, wrote a review on Ann Arbor’s Wolverine State Brewing Co.  A few weeks ago, Mark from my ‘hood cracked open a bottle of Massacre Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Dark Lager that floored me with its rich intensity.  During a family gathering two weeks ago, my nephew Ryan (young kid, fresh liver) mentioned that we were overdue to meet at Wolverine’s Tap Room after work.  The last straw was John Fahrner, who…

Switchback Brewing Co. Märzen Review

Your vote counts!

Your vote counts!Featured Contributor @BeerBallyhoo These days there are plenty of perfectly respectable breweries who will slap an “Oktoberfest” label on pretty much any old bottle of amber ale; unfortunately, they are missing the point entirely. A true Märzen is a lager, traditionally brewed sometime in (you guessed it) March, then enjoyed, once it’s been properly aged and settled, in (you guessed it again) October. The brand-spankin-new Märzen from Switchback Brewing Co. is not one of those falsified ales. It’s a true lager: slowly fermented in…
