Wine is wonderful in its place, and so is whiskey. From time to time I have even been known to drink a glass of water, despite what W.C. Fields said about it. But on a hot summer day, it is beer and beer alone that satisfies.
Traverse City Beer Week is nearly upon us. Once again, we'll be enjoying this week-long parade of tastings, dinners, games, workshops and lectures -- all devoted to our area’s celebrated craft beer industry and its many microbreweries, brewpubs and craft beer taprooms . Now in its fourth season, it’s scheduled for Nov. 11-17 this year.
