At Wolverine State Brewing Co. we take great pride in bringing out what we consider the best Oktoberfest style brew around.

This year we wanted to kick it up another notch and we thought that the best way to do that was to let you take that Oktoberfest greatness home to share with friends and family in an entirely new way, 16 oz cans! For ONE DAY ONLY, you can find our 2018 Oktoberfest in house, prepackaged in killer 16oz - 4 Packs ready to roll out our front door and into yours! Also kicking off the festivities will be food specials, music and traditional Bavarian games.

This always anticipated release from Michigan’s only all-lager brewery is characterized by toasted bread crust notes, uncanningly clean flavors, and finished off with a mild toffee sweetness. German Noble hops balance out this elegant, malty brew, leaving you refreshed and clamoring for your next sip as you enjoy the change from Michigan Summer to Michigan Fall.

Wolverine Craft Brew Challenge
May

to May 20

Wolverine Craft Brew Challenge

  • Wolverine State Brewing Co. (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Ann Arbor is home to a delightfully diverse and equally enjoyable beer scene, and here at Wolverine State Brewing Co. we take pride in being part of that ever evolving community. That community, which reaches beyond the walls of your favorite brewery and into your favorite local dining spot, beer hall and hopefully your fridge at home, is exactly why we felt the need to host a celebration. Our goal is simple. Harness that great communal aspect of craft beer, combine it with the spirit of the Ann Arbor community, and continue to build relationships, to share our knowledge and love of that binding liquid gold, and to lend a hand to a local cause in the process. That’s is why we teamed up with 6 of Ann Arbor’s favorite beer destinations to bring forth the WSBC - American Craft Beer Week Challenge.

 

Here’s how it works. Two person teams from Zingerman's, The Session Room, Rappourt Brew and Chew, The Beer Grotto, Ashley’s and HopCat, have all been tasked with the idea of creating a concept for a beer. This concept can be based on a favorite beer or specific style, a favorite cereal, or just an idea purely from their imaginations. Each team will work with staff at the brewery to turn that concept into a recipe to be brewed on our pilot system. WSBC staff will then guide our new brewmasters through the process of beer creation from start to finish, providing insight and a helping hand, while encouraging each team to be as hands on as they can with their beer.

 

Then, on Saturday May 19th, we celebrate. Live music (Reeds&Steel, Joanna and the Jaywalkers), burger and brat specials coming straight off the grill, and good weather provided will transform the taproom into a community celebration of all things craft beer. That day we will tap all 6 beers at 3pm on our festival taps inside the brewhouse. When the taps go live we will be selling a sampler package, containing a taste of each teams beer, and an upgraded sampler package which also includes a event t-shirt. Proceeds from these packages will go to a charity, Trails Edge Camp, who work with kids on ventilators and provide them with an opportunity to go to summer camp. More info on the charity can be found at, https://www.trailsedgecamp.org/

 

After enjoying a flight, there will be a live voting portal at www.wolverinebeer.com/vote so that guests can rank their favorite new beers. Later in the evening, the top three places will be announced with the first place team taking home the WSBC - ACBWC trophy for the inaugural year. While day of supplies of each teams beer will be limited to the total volume of our pilot system, thanks to our friends at Adventures in Homebrewing, the complete kit (including recipes and step by step instructions) for each teams beer will be provided at a 10% discount to anyone who may have the urge to recreate one of the competition beers.

 

From the Brewers Association - https://www.brewersassociation.org/events/american-craft-beer-week-2018/

 

Each year, beer weeks celebrate the culture and community of craft brewers across the U.S. The Brewers Association is happy to assemble American Craft Beer Week, each May. This celebration, coordinated by the Brewers Association’s Craft Beer Program, is an exciting opportunity for craft brewers to commemorate their art and tradition with enthusiasts across the country.

The space is beautiful. Clean cut and ripe with the smell of saw dust, but still warm and inviting. It’s elegant but not pretentious. It feels like the quintessential neighborhood shop from before the big box retail invasion. So what better place to host a WSBC tasting party!
