The Midwest Beer Collective’s Best of 2011

The past year was truly a defining time for the Midwest Beer Collective as we weren’t sure how things were going to progress in 2011. Were readers still interested in what we had to say or was our post-graduate project going to fall by the wayside? After reaching the 15,000 visitor mark by New Year’s Day, I think its safe to say the MwBC is here to stay for as long as you’ll have us.

We had a blast writing articles and posting beer events happening across the Midwest for you all and have put together a list of our favorites. Enjoy.
