A New Direction


Hear ye! Hear ye! Amazingly exciting announcement to help close out 2014 in style: Brew Day has officially partnered with Spread The Glove. Spread the Glove is for those in, from and fond of Michigan. It is a movement, a call to action and a community. Love where you're from, no matter where you are and join with others like you to build community. This community is used to facilitate relationships and benefit its members, build a sense of pride, generate a positive economic impact and help people fall in "Glove" for the first time or all over again. Community focused news and a retail store are at spreadthegloveMI.com.

Woodtooh officially got up and running in Chicago, but the love of craft beer is straight from the heart of Michigan. Going to college at Western Michigan University meant many (probably too many) a fine night spent at Bell's Eccentric Cafe, the now defunct Kraftbrau, and the Olde Peninsula Brewpub. Thought not all of them were brewing equally (I'm looking at you Kraftbrau), appreciating a finely crafted pint became a conversation starter, a hobby, an art, and a comfort of home.

We here at Brew Day are extremely excited to be partnering up with a lifestyle website proudly flying the Michigan flag. The same flag flying above Bell's, Short's, Dark Horse, Founders, Arcadia, Right Brain, and Jolly Pumpkin. Michigan does many things well, but there are very few things – if any – that top craft beer from the Great Lakes State.

In the spirit of loving the Mitten, we've also added another homebrewer operation to the fold! A loyal Michigander, Joseph Sova's love for all things local drove his interest in craft beer from early on. After cutting his teeth on the likes of Bell's Two Hearted Ale and Founder's Breakfast Stout, there was no going back to the world of light beer.

Soon after receiving a homebrew kit as a wedding gift, Odd Duck Brewing was founded. Following the philosophy of "the weird should never be feared", Odd Duck strives to push the envelope of established styles, experimenting with unorthodox ingredients and techniques.

Look for Mr. Sova's posts on here quite soon as we officially push this blog into a new direction. From today forward, Brew Day will officially become a brewers collective focusing on one new obsession every month. Each month the homebrewers involved will tackle a different style of beer by brewing a batch and getting their malt-stained hands on as many pints of the same style as possible. Each brewer will bring their own warped concept to their batch helping to create as many variations as there are brewers involved.

We're all tremendously excited to get started on 2015's first batch... but more on that soon.

The Concept

Brew Day is a brewers collective with a different obsession every month. Each month the homebrewers involved will tackle a different style of beer by brewing a batch and getting their malt-stained hands on as many pints of the same style as possible. Each brewer will bring their own warped concept to their batch helping to create as many variations as there are brewers involved.
