In the Garden: April’s Promise

In the Garden: April’s Promise

 

In April, I always dream of daffodils.

Just the thought of them, yellow as sunshine, and the gardens starting to come to life outside my windows, makes me swoon. This is more than spring fever.

Oberon release party tour in Muskegon

Oberon release party tour in Muskegon

For this year’s Oberon release, I decided to make the rounds in Muskegon and attend as many different release parties as possible. First stop for the die-hards is the midnight releases, of course, which for this year meant staying up late on a Sunday. Being a work night I was surprised to find familiar faces at my local Buffalo Wild Wings who were happy to join me for some Oberon and wings. Other Michigan beers currently on tap at the Muskegon location include Bell’s Two-Hearted, Founders Dirty Bastard, and Perrin Black Lager.
