Hey just thought I'd chime in here. First off, I saw Sudwerks mentioned. I can't get anything from Sudwerks here in Michigan, but I've heard they made a really good Helles. Is this true and if so, is it good? I WILL travel for a good lager!!!
Secondly, just wanna mention that if you're in Michigan, we have some great brewerys here! Brewery Vivant just opened a few blocks from my house and they make some awesome French/Belgian style beers! The Farmand Ale (saison wheat beer?) is great! They just came out with some sour beers that I have yet to try, but if you're in Grand Rapids Michigan, I would stop by this place, it's great! Founders is good as well, but I haven't seen much new from them in a while. In all, there are 6 decent size brewerys here in GR with a 7th about to open! We also have the Hopcat, which is a great beer lovers paradise! Bells and New Holland aren't far either! If you are in the area and wanna do some brewery hopping (no pun intended), let me know. Cheers!
