Can't be in Grand Rapids today for the Michigan Brewers Guild Winter Beer Festival? No worries! Stay warm next to your computer and follow me (@allthebrews) and a few thousand other maniacs on the Twitters as we stand outside in the snow and cold for hours drinking beer. It's just like being there! Well, except for the beer.
