Buy More Local Beer

Comments (0) 12:00 AM posted by admin |

If you haven’t thought about what to get me for Christmas, here’s an idea. You might consider getting me one of those memberships at the Corner Brewery (set to open onEast Forest in Ypsilanti by Arbor Brewing owners Matt and Rene Greff). As I mentioned once before, they have three membership levels offering different perks dependingon how much you want to throw down. Unlike last time, these levels now have names; the Franklin, McKinley, and Grand.

I know it’s not my brewpub, but I mayhave picked names that tied in with the local brewing history of the area. My name suggestions of the Malthouse and Wallington’s were shot down early in the year, but itwould have been cool to give levels like Lee (Ypsilanti’s first brewer), Wallington (owner of a malthouse just down the street from the Corner Brewery), Swaine (he boughtWallington’s business), Foerester (Ypsi’s second), Hoch (third), Liberty (fourth), Vogt (sixth), or Dawes (Ypsi’s last brewer closed his doors in 1943). I would have called thepremium level the Volstead level, but I digress.

I know you may be thinking that spending $1000 on a Christmas gift for me is a little excessive, but if youconsider that is only three dollars a day, it’s almost rude not to get it for me. If you also consider that $1000 gets you the lifetime membership level and I plan on living foranother seventeen years, that’s only sixteen cents a day. If you don’t think you owe me that much, then you can just go to hell.

Attached is this application for you to fill out and submit along with your check to the Greff’s. There are some details you need to beaware of for tax purposes, so please read it carefully.

Finally, the McKinley and Grand levels are on a first-come, first-served basis. If you dawdle and I getscrewed in this deal, there will be hell to pay.
