SIREN AMBER ALE
A deep kiss of liquid lust that will caress your tongue, thanks to an array of toasty Pale, Crystal (30 and 70) wheat, Carapils and roasted barely malts balanced by the subtle bite of Willamette and Fuggle hops.
Time honored German style Pilsener, a definitative golden lager is made using only malted barley, water, German hops and German Lager yeast. A great beer with floral aroma, a hint of spice and a dry finish.
Arbor Brewing’s Bollywood Blonde is a light, crisp ale with citrus (specifically orange), malt and bread-like flavors that make you long for some warm weather. This is very easy drinking, even though it has quite a bit of carbonation present. Overall this is a great entry beer.
PATHFINDER PALE ALE
Saugatuck’s recent bottle release, Pathfinder Pale Ale, is a smooth, light pale ale with hints of sweetness throughout. While hops are certainly present in the nose and taste, the sweetness, coupled with bread and spice flavors, balance out the brew quite well.
HOLIDAY IN THE PARK-
HOWELL CITY PARK
December 6-25, 2013
December 6-December 25
6:00pm-9:00pm (Drive Through)
Friday, December 6
The 7th Annual Holiday in the Park will create magical memories for those who live in our community as we explore and experience our beautiful city park throughout the entire month of December. The half mile rustic drive through Howell City Park will be lined with a hundred trees decorated for the season by local families, businesses, church groups, and service organizations. We have created an enchanting setting, reminiscent of a Currier & Ives painting.
Opening festivities will take place on Friday, December 6 from 6:00pm-8:00pm. Santa will arrive and illuminate our city park with his holiday magic. Santa has made a special request this year that kids of all ages bring their Christmas lists and well wishes for the holiday season as we will be sending them off together. While enjoying the magical glow of the holiday lights, participants can enjoy a cozy fire and warm their holiday spirits with a nice cup of hot cocoa and a delicious sweet holiday treat. Don’t forget, once Santa arrives he will be available for photos with kids of all ages for an additional fee and free hayrides will be touring the park.
To Sponsor a Tree
For those of you who would like to take part in decorating a tree, this is a great way to support community recreation, advertise your business, or extend holiday wishes to your friends and neighbors. We have six foot trees available for $40. To reserve your tree, contact the Howell Area Parks & Recreation Authority at 517/546-0693 ext. 0. For your donation, we’ll provide the tree, electricity, and a sign by your tree. You provide the lights and all the decorations (please no valuables and all decorations must be protected for our outdoor environment). Decorating will take place between 9:00am on Saturday, November 30 through noon on Friday, December 6. All trees must be undecorated by January 2.
Hundreds of evergreens, decorated for the season by community partners, will line the rustic drive around Howell City Park for viewing. Opening Lighting Ceremony is Friday, December 6th, 6-8 p.m. and includes a visit from Santa Clause, hayrides, bonfire, s’mores, hot chocolate. The drive-through event dates begin December 6 – 25, 6-9 p.m.
