The Porter’s “Where The Wild Beers Are”

The Porter Beer Bar in Atlanta hosts an interesting and awesome tap takeover Friday nights in January. The takeovers have a particular theme in mind.  This Friday’s theme is  Michigan. (Beers from the state of).  I think you will be happy with the lineup

Bell’s Batch 10,000, Founder’s Backwoods Bastard, Dirty Bastard, Breakfast Stout.  Great lineup for sure – but there are 6 more RARE kegs. They are extremely hard to come by in Georgia. (You might even say, not possible). Here is a hint – The Fresh Prince. No, not Philadelphia.  We are talking about Michigan here geniuses.  Can’t figure it out?  I guess you’ll just have to head to The Porter on Friday…
