A couple weeks ago I attended the Saugatuck Brewing Company 2nd Annual Barrel Aged Bootleg Bash and I had a blast – just another testament to this cool, laid-back, lakeshore town brewery!
I find myself visiting SBC quite a lot in the summer. It’s close to the area I spend a lot of weekends at, geographically located well with proximity to South Haven (also not too far from GR) and is just a really nice change of pace from my weekday haunts. And, did I mention I love the beer (of all varietals)? True there are some I love more than others – like the delicious, BA Neopolitan stout – but give me a juicy, Starburst wheat and I will gladly sip every drop!
The Barrel Aged Bootleg bash celebrates beer that even the pickiest, beer city geek can get behind or at least can take home some brews and trade for later (you know who are, beer share friends). At the event, I was able to taste some familiar barrel aged goodies and some awesome new ones like the Piquant Penguin sour ale that I happily brought two bottles home with me. If you want to read more about the recap of this event – head right over to SBC’s blog!
Here are some more pictures from my time at the event:
If you haven’t stopped into the brewery yet, this spring and summer would be a perfect time to check it out! SBC seems to have more and more events happening – like paint and pours and Saturday night live music – and in addition to tasting their beer and great pub menu, you can also become a brewmaster and brew your own beer! How cool is that? Check out how you can brew your own beer and SBC’s calendar of events to plan your trip.
