A few of my favorite things….

I don’t have a huge family Thanksgiving every year.  I don’t celebrate Christmas.  My birthday is on St. Patrick’s Day, which makes having a big party difficult.  So for me, the annual summer Michigan Brewers’ Guild Fest is about as close as a big family party that I go to all year.  I get to see my beer family and lots of friends and enjoy beers from all over our lovely state. 

In honor of this awesome event, and for my own amusement, I tweeked a familiar Christmas song. (When looking at the lyrics of the original though, I don’t know why it is a Christmas song.  On that note, why is that song about the guy meeting his ex-girlfriend in the grocery store played on the Christmas radio channels?)  I offer my sincere and humble apologies to Rodgers, Hammerstein, Julie Andrews and everyone else involved in the Sound of Music. I hope they don’t haunt me for this.

Anyway! Wanna hear it? Here it go:

Founders Red’s Rye and New Holland’s Full Circle

Grizzly’s Sheerwater and  Frankenmuth Dunkel

Arbor’s Crye Baby won’t bring me to tears

These are a few of my favorite beers

—-

Frog Island Cream Ale, Beer Todd’s apple strudel

Bell’s Oberon, Woodward Avenue Brewers

Wild beers that get all their yeast from the air

I love these beers with a love that’s quite rare

—-

OG’s Pepper Smoker and Wolverine Lager

Love all these beers oh so hoppy and malted

Liberty Street’s yummy Liberty One

Drinking these beers is so so very fun 

—-

Jolly Pumpkin

And the Dark Horse

All these beers are rad

I always remember favorite beers

So I never feel so bad

—-

Arcadia Sky High and Black Lotus pale

Blue Tractor brewery’s smoked silly red ale

Raise up your glass, to our state give big cheers

These are a few of my favorite beers

—-

When the keg blows

When the beer’s gone

When the wort is sad

I simply remember my favorite beers

And then I don’t feel so bad!

As an aside, I once wrote a sorority rush song in five minutes and to the tune of the Flintstones. If you give me a token at the beer fest, I might even sing it for you!
