The new goal for this project will be one updating this blog more and more all the time. My goal is once a week you will see more and more news about this movie. Along with some short interviews that you will not see in the movie as a whole. We just got back from Shorts brewery and we enjoyed some great beers with the owner Joe. He sat down with us and we had a great interview with him. He had some really great things to say about Michigan and great idea's to make this state one of the best in the country. I am at a point where i truly think we are living in the best state in the US today. I understand its very hard to see that when we see so many of us without jobs, but really i see a light at the end of the tunnel. I for one am starting to buy and do what ever i can in this state. When you take a trip do it in Michigan. When you buy a beer buy Michigan beer. If we take the time to keep dumping our money into the people around us we will see a great difference in this state. I am excited for this film and I am also excited to be a part of this great state.  Check out what we drank on our trip up north.

KEY LIME PIE crazy beer kinda heavy for a 85 degree day, but i had to try it
THE MAGICIAN A dark red and my top shorts beer
THE GOLDEN RULE One of the best summer beers light tasty
THE ANNIVERSARY ALE So many different flavors in this beer! AND a high percentage of alcohol!

RIGHT BRAIN We spent two days at this place so don't judge me hahahaha
CASK CONDITIONED BEER very good but too hot of a day for this one
EMPIRE SPEER BEER Unreal it is made with local asparagus
LITTLE ITALY  HONEY BASIL Also very good you can taste the basil
SUN CUP Great summer beer
WILL POWER One of my favorite Michigan beers
(We also have a really delicious beer, but we can't remember the name of it... something along the lines of Katy Shut The Door? It was really sweet and light!)

At the store we got

In other news we are going to enter this film in Art Prize this year. The steps are being taken and so we will see how it comes out. I can promise you if this project was the winner we would do great things for Michigan. Also if you have not been to Shorts check out the pic below and most of this work to this place was done by Joe and his wife, Leah. They risked it all to bring you some of the best beer in the world. Until next time keep drinking michigan beer.

Day 7.."The epic journey countinues"-Ryan

We started day 7 at Redwood Lodge in Flint, ranked best Brew Pub in 2008. Flint cant be all that bad with a place like this. We got to sample some of the best beers we had on the trip.

Casey the cameraman taking one of many naps.


Jill's dad got to meet up with us at Kuhnhenn Bros. in Warren.

Eric randomly ran into a co-worker/friend from the restaurant they work at together back in Grand Rapids....weird. We sat together and enjoyed the amazing creme brulee stout.

Stop 3 of the day at Dragonmead were we found some interesting items around the pub.

This picture was in the men's bathroom and was also a group favorite.

Dragonmeads unique tap handles.

Matthew observing the deer head at Traffic Jam in Detroit.

Matt and Cole taking notes of all the beers that we have tried so far.

Outside traffic jam checking out the unique plumbers fountain.

The owner/brewer of traffic jam took us around the block to show us the apartment building he bought to help save the neighborhood. Its very nice to see positive things happening in Detroit. The stories Steve had to tell us were very uplifting and positive.

Last stop of the night was across the street at Motor City Brewing Co. Unfortunately the owner wasn't available so we just enjoyed some beers and were on our way.

Day 6... the best/craziest day of our entire lives!

Day 6 we start at shorts Brewing in Bellaire. We were all very excited to get to shorts after an interesting night in Mackinac City.

Matt and Cole enjoying a beer.

Casey and Eric deep in conversation of events of the day.

BMoney lookin good.


Next stop at Jolly Pumpkin, Matt and Bmoney are observing the amazing decor.

Cole thinking about how good his life is.

Sitting down with Mike the head brewer/funniest man we got to meet. We had one of our best interviews of the whole trip at Jolly Pumpkin.

We high tailed it back to Traverse to catch the Snow and Suds festival in the woods.

You will enjoy this picture now and you will enjoy it later when Ryan finally dies.


Matt and Eric takin a leak in the toilets made of ice and snow.

Matt only wishes...

Jill and BMoney gettin ready for a good ole snowshoe race.

Cole chatting with locals while Eric is winding up a snowball that Matt is running from.

Eric and Cole hangin out with our new friends from Mt. Pleasant Brewing. We all had a great time at the fest and got to re-visit with some of the Brewers that we meet days before. Everyone was so gracious towards us at the festival.

Day 5..The day we almost died.

The crew waking up in Houghton.
We start are day at Keweenaw Brewing. We had a great tour and the following pictures are of us helping can beer with the brewers/owners. It was a great experience for all of us.
