Beer of the Year? John and Amy each make their picks!

Happy New Year!

Every week on their radio show “Behind the Mitten,” John Gonzalez and Amy Sherman offer a “Beer of the Week.”

Well, as they were winding down 2016 and preparing for 2017, John and Amy each selected a “Beer of the Year!”

Can you predict their choices?

Obviously, they selected two breweries that were on their MLive search for Best New Brewery.

John went with a beer from Stormcloud Brewery: Another Day, Another Apocalypse-a Belgian Golden Strong (9% abv) made with 50% Empire hops. Stormcloud was their pick for Best New Brewery.

Amy picked Batch Brewery‘s Marta Rita (6.8% abv), a kettle sour beer brewed with smoked sea salt, agave, lime peel and carmelized pineapple. The Detroit brewery was a Top 10 pick for Best New Brewery.

On this Podcast, John and Amy talk about Michigan’s Best for MLive, including their search for Michigan’s Best Pizza. They also talk about New Year’s Eve.
