Our pal Jonathan Cole with Old Nation Brewing sent a message searching for support pouring beers at Brewsology. I speedily raised my hand and presented the specialist solutions of my wife, Brenda, and myself. We arrived at the Brewsology Beer festival just ahead of the opening for the VIP crowd. The Michigan Science Center is a huge space the beer stations have been in just about every nook and cranny. We took a handful of revolutions on the primary concourse ahead of locating the Old Nation table downstairs.
Old Nation had a nicely-rounded choice of beers to sample. The beers integrated “Boss Tweed” double New England IPA, “Rubikon” Italian Pils, and “Shandy” – a lager with lemonade. “Boss Tweed ” requires no introduction. This huge beer, along with their flagship New England IPA “M-43” is a favourite amongst the hazy crowd. These hazy beers are fantastic, but Old Nation shines with “Rubikon.” Clean, crisp, and tasty, it is a fantastic companion for anything from playing cards with good friends, reading a book, watching a game, or mowing the lawn. Thanks to Jonathan, I discovered that what tends to make a beer an Italian pilsner is dry hopping, which offers it a extra hop-floral nose than a standard pils.
If you want to chase down the rabbit hole, there is an exceptional story on Italian pilsner style on Hop Culture.

The “West-A-Roni” triple IPA is a collaboration with Brew Detroit and Rustic Leaf Brewing. Their combined forces have crafted a huge IPA featuring classic West Coast hoppiness and a bit of a buzz.
At Arvon Brewing’s table, we sampled the “Island Heat” kettle sour. This creamy orange dream is delightful. Like a lot of of the kettle sours from Arvon, they include a lot of fruit with some lactose to produce a beer that resembles a smoothie. You can absolutely taste the mango, banana, and pineapple with hints of lime.
Our final sample was “Doghouse” lager from Pavlov’s Brewing. Pouring out clear and copper colored, this beauty is outstanding. It is a good clean, balanced beer with a lot of malt flavor and a splash of hop bitterness. Pavlov’s Brewing is positioned in Temperance if you want to stop by.
