Win tickets to BRU Fest!

If you read this blog with any regularity you know that I love Michigan beer and I like to chomp down on some tasty food. This time I’ve got an opportunity for you to do just the same.

BRU Fest takes place on June 18th at the Royal Oak Farmers Market and features burgers from Bagger Dave’s, wings from Buffalo Wild Wings and 13 craft beers from Michigan’s Bell’s Brewery plus live tunes from DJ Mike Anthony.

BRU Fest is a fundraiser to benefit the Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan and proceeds will go to help children and adults affected by leukemia, lymphoma and other blood related cancers throughout the state.

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door. They include 10 tokens for 10 beers (5oz pours) and all the burgers, wings and ice cream from Treat Dreams that you can eat! Additional tokens for beer can be purchased for $1 each.

Featuring the following Bell’s beers:

Bell’s Oberon Ale • Bell’s Amber Ale • Third Coast Beer • Bell’s Oarsman Ale • Bell’s Porter  Bell’s Pale Ale • Bell’s Lager of the Lakes • Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout • Two Hearted Ale • Bell’s Batch 9000 • Bell’s Batch 10000 • Bell’s Cherry Stout • Bell’s Consecrator Doppelbock

I like to keep it simple with just a slice of cold (not melted!) cheese.

Chipotle mustard is how I roll . . . er, on a bun, that is, not a roll.

Jalapeno's! Everything I eat has to have a kick!

Well, if I could get beer to stay on top my burger I would just stick with that as mhy topping, but it runs off. So my next favorite burger toppings are a fried egg and a slice of beet. You. It is called a Kiwi Burger if you happen to want to order one in a New Zealand McD's. I would like to back to NZ to have another one. In the meantime, I'll just have my wife make one for me.

Bacon and blue cheese.

June 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarrie Bezak
