Pilsners speak to me because they’re both easy drinking and complex beers if you want them to be. Luckily, Michigan craft breweries have started to embrace pilsners and lagers in growing numbers. At Revue, we decided to try several new or refreshed offerings, and those we missed in a 2016 taste-off.
For some of us, getting through a meal without any pain is just too boring.

Confession time: I’ve fallen out of love with IPAs.
Call it palate fatigue, call it a reaction to too many bad/unbalanced beers in the marketplace, but my beer of choice has shifted quite a bit in the last year. Now, I still like the style and I enjoy tasting the flavors of different hops, but the thought of drinking a hop bomb really turns me off.
Rockford Brewing Co. scored big in the competition at this year’s Great American Beer Festival. Revue sat down with owners Seth Rivard and Jeff Sheehan to discuss the praise the brewery’s been receiving and how they’re not letting it get to their heads.
