Ahh, this is a little more like spring. The weather is FINALLY starting to turn, the sun is out, and it's gorgeous! It will be so nice to be able to watch a game without the need for a coat, gloves, a wool hat, and boots.
The Minnesota Twins make their first of three trips to Comerica. As far as pitching matchups go for them, they're probably wishing it would be next week. They get to face two Cy Young winners, sure, but they have to go against the UNSTOPPABLE Robbie Ray! That Sunday matchup is making them wish they could do something about what the schedule makers had in mind. As Rany Jazayerli said earlier this week, people really should stop making trades with Dave Dombrowski.
(And yes, I fully expect the Tigers to now get swept. I'm sorry, in advance.)
We've made it to May, and I still haven't written about Founders or Bell's. That will change this week. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Bell's Midwestern Pale Ale.
The Midwestern Pale Ale is a great spring balcony beer with subtle light hoppy notes and a clean, crisp finish. While an IPA is known for an aggressive hoppy bite, the pale ale is better known for being slightly sweet with a hoppy palate cleansing aftertaste. The apricot colored body and the light straw head give a floral aroma that will pair wonderfully with tacos, buffalo wings, or other spicy foods, and at only 5.2% ABV and 45 IBUs, it's a great beer for the weekend playing lawn darts while listening to the game on the radio.
Bell's Brewery is located in either Kalamazoo or Comstock, MI, depending on who you ask and which signs you pay attention to.
