BOTD - North Peak "Wanderer"

While waiting to head up to the theater to check out the new D-Box seats at Celebration Cinema (for the Hobbit), Dan got a little antsy and ran to pick up a 6er.

Nothing like in Greenbush in November!

We spent most of the day filming, but during our free moments we grabbed a few candids at one of favorite places on the planet. (Greenbush Brewing Co in Sawyer, MI)
Shot with 5D MarkII/III
Special thanks to Scott Sullivan & Jill Sites for being so gracious to us.

This is Baney, he started as a bartender, became a brewer and now heads up sales. I actually traded him a beer for my wedding ring. True Story.

This is Pete (also known as Papa Bear) shoveling spent grain. Which will likely be traded to a local farm for cow feed.

Jill Sites, Ambassador of Everything, and myself.

The Taproom. All Christmasy.

Jill does not stress ever.

Carlos + Journeyman Distillery barrels. 

Hop Pellets for small batches.

This was Papa Bear's lunch, waiting for him while he shoveled grain. These tacos were delicious.

Someone's mug, not sure who.

Pete doing his thing.

Scott, founder and co-owner.

The journey continues...

We are excited to be shooting extended time with Jill and Scott, both owners at Greenbush Brewing Co as well Sarah, Mike and Dave from Founders Brewing Company in Grand Rapids, MI - and only a week apart! 
Sorry, it's just we've gotten quite used to having a month between shoots...
Anyway, our goal is to get in 4 quality shoots before Christmas... Stay tuned beer and film lovers!

In the meantime, follow us on TWITTER and FACEBOOK!

Hop Head Farms

Jeff and Bonnie from Hophead Farms were most hospitable. Didn't have a lot of time to snag sweet photos, but we had a lot of fun getting footage on their hop yard in Richland, MI.

Michigan Beer Film - The Michigan Hop Alliance

My wife, Anna, and I traveled 4.5 hours north to Omena, MI in the Leelanau Peninsula to speak with Brian Tennis and Joel Mulder of the Michigan Hop Alliance.
Although already worn out from out trip to Detroit (to see the Tigers put a hurt on the Sox) the night before, It was a blast.

We drank some michigan beer.
Talked about organically grown Michigan hops.
Toured Brian's 20 acre hop yard, called New Mission Organics
