    The Walldorff Brewpub in Hastings, MI just released its BA IPA. Had my first glass of it tonight and I was very impressed. Any of you BA's nearby should check it out if you haven't been up this way in a while.

    I was very impressed with their offerings last year at Winter Beer Fest... They had this ginger thing, Saison maybe? Fuck if I know I was sloshed, but it was good. And there was no line so I had seconds and fifths.

    I was
    just down there with Mike this afternoon. Any chance we know each other? I am back home for a few weeks. I have been stationed in Belgium for the last three years and I am here visiting family. I am about the same distance away near the hospital.

    I may have served you the beer....as once I got done roaming the grounds getting sauced I just hung out behind their booth.

    Had the BA IPA tonight. I really liked it. Waldorff is underrated imo. Also went to Hophead Farms and got a 4 pack of Black Note. It was a good day.

    Had a pint of it Friday afternoon...good thing I didn't do a pub mug of it cause it would have knocked my dick in the dirt! I don't think the 9.2% ABV is correct....seems more like 12%....but it was damn good!

    Went back for seconds Saturday night along with their Creme Brulee Java Stout and Belgian Cherry. Hope they keep up the good work!

    I really question why I haven't driven up there yet. It is less than a half hour from my house. I am disappointed in me.

    Who's going to start the Winter Beer Fest thread?

    At least this can't be over hyped thereby more people showing up like beer releases. Well I guess more people could show up assuming they like watching from the sidelines.
