I’m not sure he appreciates what he is in for once the National Homebrewers Conference begins in Grand Rapids. First official event will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Perrin Brewing Company. But the real fun is likely to come at Club Night and the Beer City Social Club late each night.
I already know about one homebrewed Grodziskie we should get a chance to taste Wednesday at Perrin.
