|Coming soon to Ann Arbor: more of this.|
- A brewery for my homies. A new Ann Arbor brewpub by the name of HOMES (I assume that is for the Great Lakes mnemonic) has been proposed for a property on Jackson Ave., across from Veterans Park. Prospective owner Tommy Kennedy says he is motivated by the lack of restaurant options on the city's west side.
- Cruisin' for brews. Closer to downtown, a longtime auto shop on Ashley St. is closing down as the building's owner plans on turning the space over to an as-yet-unidentified restaurant and bar with a brewery, winery, and distillery on premises.
- Tales of Ann Arbor beer. A while back, Ann Arbor social media maven and raconteur Rich Retyi interviewed me about the city's beer history and current scene for the Ann Arbor District Library's "Ann Arbor Tales" podcast series. The AADL made it the "Download of the Day" for October 9, and if you need something to listen to while you're at work or making dinner or whatever, you can check it out here. It's about 38 minutes.
- Say my name. The Michigan Daily's Karen Hua recently had a nice feature on Ann Arbor's brewing history, in which yours truly makes a cameo appearance. Explaining my place in the local scene, she says, "The man even has the word 'bar' in his name." True enough!
- While we're on the subject of me. The beer named after me, Uncle Dave's Rye Peppercorn Ale, should be on tap at Grizzly Peak right about now. Check it out; it's really good, and I'm not just saying that because it's named after me. Did I mention it's named after me?
