One overcast September day, Odell Brewing harkened me to the Mecca of craft brewing, Fort Collins, for a few cozy tasters in their amazing taproom. As Lee Holliday and the Time Off crooned scintillating blues for the live music night, I admired the walls, embellished with huge rich oil paintings of their highly recognized and highly revered microbrews: Cut Throat Porter, Easy Street Wheat, Levity Amber, IPA, and of coarse 90 Shilling.
Starting today we’ll be bringing you a regional break down of breweries you should definitely stop by during the festival. In some cases we were also able to find out what specific beers they’ll be bringing. Today we kick off our coverage on the Great Lakes region. This includes breweries from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
I recently discovered that I’m kinda a weird dude. My friend Paula recently called me out for being an “Asian, hipster, frat boy from Kentucky who also listens to bluegrass/country music.” I guess she has a point. Perhaps that’s why I find Strange Brewery in Denver, CO so endearing.
