Perrin Brewing Co. by Passion Fruit Gose

Matt K. is drinking a Passion Fruit Gose by Perrin Brewing Co. at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

This isn’t really salty or fruity. It’s got hints of each, which is a bummer for the passion fruit. Ugh.

Trail Point Brewing Company  by HAZYpotamus

Matt K. is drinking a HAZYpotamus by Trail Point Brewing Company at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Not too bad. Green hops and a hint of bitterness on the finish. Lightly juicy.

Trail Point Brewing Company  by CIPApotamus

Matt K. is drinking a CIPApotamus by Trail Point Brewing Company at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Bad idea for big heat. This is heavy. Heavy citrusy IPA syrup with a lingering juiciness.

Trail Point Brewing Company  by Maui Meltdown

Matt K. is drinking a Maui Meltdown by Trail Point Brewing Company at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Nice papaya up front. The vanilla and a bit of milk sugar come rolling in late. This is weird. Not bad, just weird.

Big Buck Brewery by Kayak Attack

Matt K. is drinking a Kayak Attack by Big Buck Brewery at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Nice guava presence, but the kolsch presence here makes it weird. Nothing balances well at all. The fruits are at war with the beer.

Parker's Hilltop Brewery by $1000 Stout

Matt K. is drinking a $1000 Stout by Parker's Hilltop Brewery at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Lots of roasted malt. Lightly watery. But of dryness on the back end. Not super great.

Parker's Hilltop Brewery by Mr. Hockey

Matt K. is drinking a Mr. Hockey by Parker's Hilltop Brewery at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Nice Irish red. Balanced and caramel forward. Good malt backbone. I’m a fan of this one.

Parker's Hilltop Brewery by Blank’s IPA

Matt K. is drinking a Blank’s IPA by Parker's Hilltop Brewery at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Crisp and light. This is decent. There’s a bit more malt than I’d care for here, but it’s a nice session.

Parker's Hilltop Brewery by Louis S. Dortmunder

Matt K. is drinking a Louis S. Dortmunder by Parker's Hilltop Brewery at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Nice malty lager. It’s lean and crisp with a little bit of a soap thing happening on the finish. Not bad though.

Eastern Market Brewing Co by Elephant Juice

Matt K. is drinking an Elephant Juice by Eastern Market Brewing Co at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Nice big juicy hazy IPA. This is pretty good. Nice balance of juice and hop. Not super green.

Taster

Eastern Market Brewing Co by Raspberry Shock Tart

Matt K. is drinking a Raspberry Shock Tart by Eastern Market Brewing Co at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Definitely raspberry heavy. Not quite the salty gose I was expecting. Shock tart is pretty much on it.

Eastern Market Brewing Co by Double White Coffee Stout

Matt K. is drinking a Double White Coffee Stout by Eastern Market Brewing Co at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Weird and light. The coffee flavors through this are decent, but the concept of a white stout is something I’ll never understand.

Taster

Watermark Brewing Co. by Moon Boots

Matt K. is drinking a Moon Boots by Watermark Brewing Co. at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Hoppy and bitter with a light vegetal thing happening on the finish. This is a little rough.

Taster

SuperNatural Brewing and Spirits by Gin N' Juice

Matt K. is drinking a Gin N' Juice by SuperNatural Brewing and Spirits at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Lots of gin and lime. Fuck. As abrasive on the flavor as a cocktail with the sharp booziness on the back end that matches.

Taster

New Holland Brewing  by Dragon's Milk Reserve: Maple Oak

Matt K. is drinking a Dragon's Milk Reserve: Maple Oak by New Holland Brewing at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Lots of maple and woodiness. The base beer seems to get lost in this. Not terrible.

Taster

Ascension Brewing Company by Peanut Butter Gorilla Juice

Matt K. is drinking a Peanut Butter Gorilla Juice by Ascension Brewing Company at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Great peanut butter. Shit. Thick. Nice growing bitterness as opposed to a dry dustiness. Had to go back for seconds.

Arclight Brewing Company by Pro Brewers Reserve

Matt K. is drinking a Pro Brewers Reserve by Arclight Brewing Company at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Light and clean. This is super smooth with a great crispness on the back end. Long live the crispy boi. Delicious.

Bell's Brewery by The Wild One (2017)

Matt K. is drinking The Wild One (2017) by Bell's Brewery at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

Very good. Tart and balanced. Light Flanders quality without the cherry. Bit of funk on the back end. I’m digging it

Bell's Brewery by Barrel-Aged Ashley's 35th Anniversary

Matt K. is drinking a Barrel-Aged Ashley's 35th Anniversary by Bell's Brewery at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2016

This is very bourbon heavy. Not a whole lot else pokes through. Decent lighter oatmeal stout. But dominated by barrel.
