    Solid little read. Mark and Michele are great people, they've done a lot for the beer scene in GR.

    I find it more interesting that he's a big fan of Ayn Rand AND Warren Buffet!

    Were the 4Elf and ES Bam so good you had to have 2, or were they so good that it effected your typing? :)

    Ha, so good I had to have two. I got the 4elf twice because I've never seen/had it and am a Dark Horse fanboy, but I've gotta say my favorite of the night was good old Third Coast. 4elf had some really interesting spiciness to it, and ES Bam made a great in-betweener at a mere 4.7 ABV, both were friggin' delicious

    I would definitely advise the trip. Mark is great people and his establishments are top notch. Unfortunately for your liver there are many great options outside of his bars that will lead to pain. Fun, awesome, enjoyable pain.
