e’re all for continuing ed at REVUE, especially when it comes to beer. That’s why we’ve partnered with Saugatuck Brewing Company on the first-ever REVUE/SBC Brewing Class & Competition. It’s open to anyone – from beer enthusiasts wanting


to brew their first batch to skilled home brewers who want a taste of fame, fortune and beer swag. Groups are encouraged. To enter: Call SBC and sign up for the Make Your Own Beer session between Oct. 15-Nov.


23. You’ll be scheduled for a four-hour session with SBC’s brewers, who provide ingredients, recipes, wisdom and hands-on help. When done, you’ll have about 60 delicious 22-oz. bottles of your own brew. The cost is the same for individuals or groups: $250 (all-inclusive). No cost to enter REVUE Brew competition (though we keep two bottles). The winner: On Dec.17, a panel of REVUE and SBC staff will


judge the beers using Beer Judge Certification Program guidelines. Winners will be featured in REVUE, and their beer recipe served on tap at SBC. Winners also get a $500 prize pack that includes SBC gear, beer-lover gift cards, mug club memberships, beer- making gear and more. To enter, call SBC at (269) 857-7222.

Mainstream beers are anathema to many craft-beer drinkers, but macro-brews do have redeeming quali- ties. To wit: Lansing native Jennifer England, who was named the St. Pauli Girl spokesmodel last April. The model and actress is the 27th buxom blonde to don the iconic German barmaid getup, though a press release is careful to note she’s “not just a pretty face,” adding, “To take on the role of the Pauli Girl, England underwent extensive beer education, including formal training with the esteemed Siebel Institute of Technology and World Brewing Academy.”


For the DD


Designated drivers should be able to enjoy some hops on their night with the keys. Luckily, Grand Rapid’s Schmohz Brewery has introduced what may be the first non-alcoholic craft beer in the state of Michigan — and one of the first in the country. Schmohz 120 beer is a hoppy pale-ale style NA beer that the brewer sells in six-packs ($8) and cases ($28) at the brewery as well as retail stores that carry its brands. The secret behind the craft near beer’s name: “It takes about 120 of them to get a buzz,” says Brewer Chas Thompson.
