Bizarro brew

[caption id="attachment_161" align="alignleft" width="142" caption="Mark Zadvinskis's Amazing Zymurman Logo!"]zymurman[/caption] Over the Valentine's weekend, the Ann Arbor Brewers Guild resurrected an old tradition — brewing a Bizzaro ale. The first Bizarro was brewed in 2001, and was inspired by Larry Bell's Eccentric Day ale. Members bring adjuncts and specialty grains, and these are all tossed into the kettles creating—well, A VERY unusual ale indeed. This last batch was brewed at the Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti, Michigan and will be served commercially thanks to Matt and Rene Greff's Rat Pad program (http://www.arborbrewing.com/index.php?site=cornerbrewery&page=menu3&submenu=2). Homebrewers use a 3 half barrel system, brew a batch and it gets served a few weeks later as one of the Corner's specialty brews. Brewers are also reimbursed for their ingredients, and get their moment of fame!
