The Great Taste of the Midwest beer festival 2009

Continuing on the wonderful parallel journey of culinary and craft brew discovery with my dear friends from the B.Nektar Meadery, I had the distinct honor of not only attending this year's Great Taste of the Midwest beer festival, but working the B.Nektar table serving thousands of glasses of Mead - many to first time Mead drinkers. The day started with biblical thunderstorms which broke just before public opening into a hot and sunny and glorious day of thousands of eager and thirsty beer and wine aficionados from all over the Midwest United States in attendance for what has certainly become my favorite day of drink and debauchery. I sampled many fine craft beers from a huge variety of brewers and met so many smiling people - it's such a wonderful feeling. A real afterglow of a hard yet fun day's work as I sit out in the darkened HIlton courtyard tapping away on my laptop with my final glass of Mead for the evening. An honor to meet so many wonderful people from near and far and a pleasure to serve you. I look forward to next year's event - and I cannot recommend it enough for anyone who enjoys sampling new and delightful beers and other exotic beverages. For those in and traveling to Detroit, a little taste of the experience can be had every 1st and 3rd friday evening at B.Nektar in Ferndale, just outside of Detroit. I hope to see you there some time. To your health! Live well! -Mac
