Written by Joe Boomgaard | Thursday, 13 August 2015 15:41 |

In case you forgot, it’s almost time for ArtPrize. To benefit the annual celebration of artistic renderings of Jesus and assorted other professional and amateur artworks, Founders Brewing Co. is again releasing a beer to correspond with the competition. This year’s brew, Spectra Trifecta, is a traditional Kolsch style made with chamomile, ginger and lemongrass. Look for it in six packs of 12-ounce bottles starting in September (or slightly beforehand).

Written by Joe Boomgaard | Friday, 31 July 2015 15:37 |

After nearly three years of planning, Kelly Rozema Finchem and Luke Finchem have finally realized their dream of opening a craft brewery in West Michigan. The creators of Dutch Girl Brewing Inc. employed a different startup philosophy than most brewery owners in that they launched their company with plenty of room to grow.

Pronto Pups is a Grand Haven must-have

Written by Tayler Keefer | Friday, 31 July 2015 15:35 |

A fixture on the coast of downtown Grand Haven, the Pronto Pups stand has undergone few, if any, changes since it sold its first pup 68 years ago. And second generation owner Carl Nelson is just fine with that. “We only serve one thing, so when you walk up to the window we don’t ask you what you want, we ask you how many you want,” Nelson said. “There’ll never be anything more or anything less. The system we have right now is a well-oiled machine.”

Northern Exposure: Exploring Traverse City’s craft beer scene

Written by Joe Boomgaard | Tuesday, 30 June 2015 16:01 |

Traverse City may be known for its cherries and wine, but the Northwest Michigan town has been slowly making a name for itself because of its thriving craft beer scene. The city of around 15,000 people has no fewer than 10 microbreweries or brewpubs — and that’s not even counting many more beer producers that continue to pop up in nearby towns like Acme, Lake Ann and Suttons Bay. (Lest you fudgies forget: Short’s Brewing Co. is actually based 40 miles away in Bellaire.)

July Juicing: A local guide to detoxing

Written by Alexandra Kadlec | Tuesday, 30 June 2015 15:50 |

With all of the junk food served at festivals, you might need a detox. One option is juicing. For some, the words juice cleanse conjures up an image of self-inflicted suffering, sacrifice, and near-starvation. And then there’s the price tag (not cheap), and the connotation (Gwyneth-y), and the crimp it puts in your social life (goodbye bars, hello board games). I get it, but I’ve done the juice cleanse more than once and experienced positive results.

Down Home: The Southerner is a ‘love letter to Appalachia’

Written by Brian J. Bowe | Tuesday, 30 June 2015 11:01 |

Sitting next to a crackling hickory fire outside Saugatuck’s new fried chicken-and-barbecue joint The Southerner, chef Matthew Millar reflected on this moment in his career, which finds him going back to his roots. “I’m a blue-collar guy,” Millar said. “I never wanted to be an artist. I always wanted to be somebody who just did something well.”

White Flame, Pike 51 breweries put Hudsonville on the map

Written by Joe Boomgaard | Tuesday, 02 June 2015 16:57 |

Once the beer began flowing in Hudsonville, people started to take notice. While it had the dubious distinction of being Michigan’s last dry city, a title it held until 2007, the Ottawa County town now boasts two growing microbreweries that come highly regarded by the region’s craft beer cognoscenti.

New brewery alert: Newaygo Brewing Co.

Good beer comes to those who wait. The Looman family had been plotting for years to find a way to bring their homebrew concoctions to a wider audience, and they got serious in 2014. Nick and Krista Looman quit their jobs and relocated to Newaygo County to start Newaygo Brewing Company.
