Saugatuck Brewing

Saugatuck Brewery – Blueberry Stout…and so much more.

Mea Culpa. I once wrote a light-hearted article here on Sommbeer focused on ingredients in beer that, no matter how popular, no matter how many friends love them, just aren’t for you. For me, blueberries existed as the one thing in beer I simply could not stomach. I wrote: I do not like blueberry beer. Actually, I hate it.

How To Introduce Your Friends to Craft Beer

How To Introduce Your Friends to Craft Beer 22oz bottles. Cases. Cans. Kegs. Growlers. Beer comes in lots of packages.  But it’s the 6-pack that’s ubiquitous. It’s also a great way to organize beers.

Saugatuck Starburst Wheat

Senior Editor – John Fahrner @fahrn13 A few months ago I opened my mind to a plethora of flavor and introduced myself to Saugatuck Brewing’s wonderfully unique Neapolitan Milk Stout.  I’m not going to claim that beer as my favorite, but I will say that the beer was one of, if not the most, thought provoking beers that I had the pleasure of enjoying over the last year or so.  Neapolitan Milk stout was recommended to me by a family member and after she nailed that recommendation…
