Why not try making your own beer?  This is the set that my husband got started with when he home brewed.

Beer.  Cheese.  Did you hear me?  Beer. Cheese.  Then let me add….Sliders…..Oh yeah, now we’re talking.  These Beer Cheese Chicken Pretzel Sliders from Buns In My Oven are everything and more.

And finally for #NationalBeerDay I will share my FAVORITE Brewery in Southwestern Michigan.  Arclight Brewing Company in Watervliet, Michigan.

While craft beer is synonymous with amazing sandwiches & pub chips at this brewery you have to either bring your own food, order from local restaurants or they offer a food truck occasionally.  I’m still okay with that.  My husband and I went after visiting his friend in the area on a Saturday night.  The place was not crowded but busy.  Casual picnic tables, kids running around (they also handcraft their own sodas) or playing board games, funky music. They even had a movie projecting up on the back wall.  We went in the middle of Winter and I cannot wait to get back there to sit on the patio.  What I immediately thought when I left was….the perfect setting with the perfect beer.

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.~Benjamin Franklin. Celebrate.
