GRAND RAPIDS, MI — This week we taped our show at The Mitten Brewing Company, one of our favorite places to hang out at here in Grand Rapids.
I love the friendly atmosphere, the great pizza, of course the beer, and the fact that I always run into friends when I stop by. Mostly because Im friends with the owners, Chris Andrus and Max Trierweiler, and head brewer Rob Wanhatalo (pictured with me above). My go to beer here is the Country Strong IPA, which i love for its balanced taste, bright citrus, and all around goodness. Another fan favorite is the Peanuts and Cracker Jacks Porter.
We asked Wob to pick our Beer of the Week this week and he went with a beer that is just coming on line as a perfect summer thirst quencher as well as what we lovingly refer to as a gateway beer. The Stretch Cream Ale is light, creamy, very mild, and a beer you could drink in the bleachers all day long. Its on tap now at the Mitten, so stop by and grab a cold one!
