My fellow West Michiganians as the self proclaimed GRD Ambassador Of Craft Beer for Grand Rapids it is my duty to instill a sense of urgency and inspire you to exercise your right to vote. Not so that cheating scheisters who thrive on broken promises can take hostage our esteemed political offices and certainly not for useless trivial Facebook polls like "What's your favorite whippy dip".
No sir! This is exercising serious voting privileges on a topic most revered and respected in our beloved community. Beer. Oh! and of course the right to call ourselves Beer City USA for another year. It's that time of year again to find out what city in the USA will hold this prestigious title and I don't know about you but I'm not willing to relinquish it just yet. Especially given the great breweries located in our fair city and surrounding area. Kudos to Founders, Bells, New Holland, Grand Rapids Brewing Co., Brewery Vivant and the rest for putting us on the map! We salute you! Now lets rally my fellow "beeridians". Lets hit the campaign trail, lets listen to inspiring slurred speeches or whatever it is we have to do to win this thing. Signed Your Beer Ambassador JT.
