I paid a visit last night to Ashley's in Westland for the second matchup in their ongoing Brewery Throwdown, pitting Saugatuck Brewing Co. vs. Arcadia Ales. Saugatuck emerged as the victor when sales were tallied at midnight, but no matter which beers you tried, you were a winner. Here's Ashley's co-owner Roy More talking with Arcadia's Casey Baxter about B-Craft Double Black IPA, Nut Brown Ale, Hopmouth Double IPA, and Rapunzel Wheat IPA.
Here, some handsome fellow chats with Scott Farney of Saugatuck Brewing about Singapore IPA, ESB Amber, Oval Beach Blonde Ale, and Black Pale Ale, making its first appearance outside the brewery in Douglas.
The next showdown is January 18 between Frankenmuth Brewery and Ann Arbor's own Wolverine State Brewing. Who else will advance to the semifinals? Come by beginning at 6 p.m. and cast your vote by buying a beer!
