Tomorrow morning, the Aleheads are setting off on their sorta-annual, often epic, seldom tragic travel adventure. Like so many Americans looking for a tropical getaway as the weather turns brisk in the Fall, we chose the locale of central Michigan. I won’t bore you with the itinerary or tell you just what we’re looking forward to most. Just know that if a brewery falls somewhere between Detroit, Kalamazoo, and Grand Rapids, chances are they’ll be short a few pints by Sunday. And by pints, I mean one total pint at each, as we tend to just grab a few samples before jetting off to the next destination. After all, you don’t hit 25 breweries over a weekend in San Diego by slugging down 3 beers at every stop.
If you’d like to follow along, we’ll try to post at least a few Tweets throughout Friday and Saturday (@aleheads) and those of us with Untappd accounts (Probably just me) will be throwing out a million and two posts on what we’re drinking. If you see an Untappd update in Michigan every 5 minutes, that’s probably me.
Wish us luck. At our advanced age, we’ll be lucky if we escape this trip without a few minor scrapes and bruises or a soiled hotel bed. Such is the price we pay for fun these days.
Doc, Slouch, and Barley
