It was hot, hot hot by Michigan standards, but the best place to chill out last night was with a fantastic crew of Yelpers in the Beer Garden at Ypsilanti's Corner Brewery.
Fresh mini-sunflowers in giant
beer steins graced the tables as yelpers tipped their own glasses of Arbor Brewing Company beer, including a new Strawberry Blonde that was a definite hit! To add to the Garden Party atmosphere, there were plenty of summery items like fake birds, butterflies and bubbles
(in the shape of ice cream cones) and Yelp
balloons were all around!
Yelp Elites and guests munched on Corner's own *very* fresh
bruschetta, and sampled chocolates and confections from local chocolatier Carillon Chocolates. Corner owner Matt Greff (who had just returned from DC —
providing beer for a celebration for our local congressman!) led two separate groups of yelpers
on a tour of the brewing facilities.
Door prizes abounded, with several yelpers claiming massages, Sam S scored a certificate for a mani-pedi (he swears he's using it himself), and new Elite Squad member Darin E and his wife Mari were proud holders of weekend passes to the Rothbury Festival. Dylan, anyone?
As night fell over the garden, there was plenty of laughter along with the food and beer.
Until next time,
