|Some of Brewery Vivant's Offerings|
Okay, not a great beer for golfing, but an excellent beer for just about everything else. The saison, and the other styles they make, are currently some of my favorite beers.
The reputation of Brewery Vivant continues to grow. They have recently collaborated with the craft brew giant New Belgium Brewing in Ft. Collins, CO. The first of their collaborations is on sale now in Michigan called Escoffier Brett Beer, a French farmhouse ale (biere de garde). The beer celebrates the pairing of beer and food. I hear that the next beer will also be a farmhouse ale presented as the next incarnation of New Belgium's "Lips of Faith" series. Now that New Belgium beers are being sold in Michigan, I hope that we will be able to get it in the Great Lakes State.
I look forward to seeing what else is in store for Brewery Vivant and simply must make a trip over to Grand Rapids to visit the brewery.
