Blue Tractor

 

continued

Mike Hall, 2mission's executive brewer, designed four new beers specifically for Ann Arbor's Blue Tractor: Bumper Crop pale ale, BT light lager, Bearded Pig pilsner, and Sudworth cream ale, named after the building's original owner. "The cream ale," says Glazer, who also manages Cafe Habana next door, "will have a nitrogen tap rather than a carbon dioxide tap-nitrogen makes very small bubbles, very creamy." Lobdell adds that "because it's Ann Arbor, we can do some more adventurous things on the menu than we do in Traverse City."

Glazer says that in addition to the home brews, "we have some cool old-school beers. We'll be selling Carling Black Label, Blatz, Schlitz, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Miller High Life, and Stroh's." Lobdell himself has a special affection for Leinenkugel's: his wife, Andi Hancock Lobdell, is the great-great-granddaughter of Jacob Leinenkugel, founder of the Wisconsin brewery. It isn't available at this Blue Tractor yet, but it is sold at the Traverse City BT.

Blue Tractor BBQ & Brewery, 207 East Washington, 222-4095, Mon.-Sat. 11 a.m.-2 a.m. (kitchen closes 11 p.m. Mon.-Thurs., midnight Fri. & Sat.), Sun. noon-midnight (kitchen closes 10 p.m.). bluetractor.net    (end of article)
