The Quest Continues…Drinking beer one day at a time


Let the holiday partying continue! Debbie and I will be at Greenbush for lunch followed by a stop at Tapistry for a mid-afternoon pint. If you dare, come and join us!

Just a little reminder, or notice: Greenbush will be having a brunch menu and open earlier in the day on Sunday for your morning pleasures. Debbie and I will be there for this, too.


Today is the winter solstice with something to help you to stay warm on day 21 of the Greenbush Advent Calendar brings us: Remnant of Dragon an Imperial Red India Pale Ale.

If you got your ticket to the “Beeracle on Lake Street” at Tapistry. then don’t forget that it starts at 6:00PM tonight. Also, it seems that they still have some tickets left for sale. I’d say if that you can, then just do it! You’ll have no regrets.


Day 6 of the Greenbush Advent Calendar brings us: One and the Same an ale brewed with raspberries. How refreshing!

Don’t forget that Greenbush’s Christmas Party starts tonight at 6:00pm, (at 5:00pm for mug-clubbers). Debbie and I are going to be there and we hope to see you, too!

Speaking of parties; The Livery is having their winter party today that they are calling December Darkness. It goes from the time they’re open, which is 11:30am, until they close, and features a bottle release and a bunch of barrel-aged beers on tap. Debbie and I will be there early this afternoon.

It’s starting to look like a very busy day.

There’s a chili cook-off in Bridgman this afternoon, for which I really don’t have any links and few details, but I do believe Tapistry is involve in some way or the other. Even if they’re not, you should come down and try a glass of Cryil Figgis, or Batch 100 while sampling chilis at a tent near Eric’s & the railroad tracks.


Today’s itinerary:

–11:00AM: Pick up coffee at Infusco
–11:05AM: Beep horn & wave at Greenbush Employees
–11:20AM: Meet Bruce at Tapistry for lunch and beers ($2 TierIII Beers on Monday)
–1:00PM: Continue enjoying Monday at Greenbush (Mug-Club Monday)
–3:00PM: Limp home


Debbie and I had a wonderful time at Nate and Brenda’s house celebrating Thanksgiving! I also wanted to give a ‘heads up’ to Tapistry as they gained at least one more person who appreciates their beer. Well, one of their beers, that being the Batch 100 Russian Imperial Stout. Several of my family liked it, especially Adam; he liked it so much that he asked me to get him some more, and more he’ll get.

Today is the last day of November, and it’s the last day of Movember, too. Here’s my last mustache picture for one month’s growing.

Movember 30 and this is what I get?


The day after Thanksgiving which means Black Friday, crowds and shopping, at least for some. For me, it means a black IPA, stout, and/or porter. Maybe something like a Bourbon Barrel Aged Steel Wheels from The Livery; a Hail to the Darkness at Arclight; a Peck’s Porter at Tapitry; or an Anger at Greenbush. Whatever drink and where ever you decide to relax, it’s gotta be better than getting up before dawn and dealing with all of the bargain hunters.

Speaking of dark, how about these canned beauties from Burn ‘Em?

Here’s what I’ll like after my forage in to dark beers:

Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday !Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday! Monday!
