    Snake Juice is the beer I think you meant when you said we shouldn't talk about it any more.

    I mean seriously--I knew they were taking some chances but why? When they've got new brews like a Michigan cherry double iPa, coconut iPa, Thai coconut stout--lots of others--why take your release schedule in that direction (Snake Juice, swirl stout, Bim bam boom) ideas that don't even sound interesting on paper?

    Hallucinogenics, I assume.

    We managed to get our keg in 48 hours...pretty impressive considering it went from Elk Rapids, to Kalamazoo, all the way up to Eagle River MI. Cheers, Shorts!

    I took a six pack of Huma camping with me this weekend. And each can, about half way through, I just kept thinking "has this always been such a mess" super sticky sweet malt bomb with a sharp bitterness that did not please me one bit. It was really disappointing. I brought a few Grapefruit IPA's from Perrin and some Blackrocks Presque Ale and was much more satisfied with both of those.
    Oh ya, the Huma was dated July 27th, so it was not old by any means.

    Not going to rehash what's already been said about Shorts. I'm in the same camp.

    But how about that Presque Ale :eek: My pick for Michigan Beer of the Summer.

    Presque is amazing.

    Crushing a Guess the Dry Hop Local's and it's a win in my book. Really like it.

    Buuuut not as much as Presque...

    Does anyone have any idea how difficult Creamiest of the Peach would be to get? Been missing Peaches and Cream, seeing a return gave me feels.

    There are really just two beers I look forward to from them every year, "Goodnight Bodacious" and "Cup A Joe".

    Glad to see "Melt My Brain" returning. I found that beer very crushable, hope they put it in cans.

    Michigantuan and Cat's Pajamas have me pumped to try some (hopefully) new favorites
