Suds: March 2

March has arrived and brings with a lot of good news for craft beer in the Midwest. Beer festivals are happening all over this weekend so let’s dive right into today’s edition of Suds. Let’s crack open a Capital Brewery Mai Bock, winner of the gold medal for bock beer in the 2010 US Open Beer Championship.

– Speaking of bocks, check out Bockfest in Cinncinatti, Ohio. A day of goats and German beer.

– If you can’t make it to Bockfest, have no fear Glass City Beerfest is here.

– With all the snow this winter, let’s take advantage of it. Michigan has the right idea. http://www.boyne.com/BoyneHighlands/AnnualEvents/BrewskiFestival.html

– Michigan is also hosting the Fort Wayne’s Premier Brewfest. Get your tickets now.

– For our friends in Minnesota, the Happy Gnome’s Firkin Fest is right around the corner.

– Sorry Chicago, the cask ale fest is sold out, but this society will let you know about any upcoming events.

– Anybody interested in beer and aviation? Then the Hops and Props fest is for you.

– Here’s a nice article on the Great Dane Brew Pub, a Madison classic.

– And finally, here’s an update on Goose Island’s Big John and Fleur.
