Winter beer warning issued for Grand Rapids: A liveblog

By David Bardallis

It's time again for the Michigan Brewers Guild Winter Beer Festival, but if instead of being outside in a parking lot in Grand Rapids drinking beer you're stuck inside a warm house in Ann Arbor or somewhere else drinking beer, this liveblog's for you!

Follow your correspondent and thousands of other beer-loving dweebs as we sample from among more than 450 beers from 61 different Michigan breweries. You'll feel just like you're here with us, only maybe with fewer beverage options. (Or, if you are at the festival, join in the Twitter fun with hashtag #miwbf.)
