Liveblogging the 14th Annual Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival

By David Bardallis

Can't be at the Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival in Riverside Park, Ypsilanti today? (What? Why not?) Follow my beery exploits via the Twitters as I navigate storms, humidity, drunks, and the other perils of our state's oldest and largest beer festival. Going to be at the Festival? Use hashtag #MIBeerFest to let others know what you're up to. And have a beer for me, eh? Cheers!
