Thanks for the pics, Oscar. I will be making a trip to BC, MI later this Summer. I'll have to schedule a visit to Arcadia!

Thanks for letting me ride along Oscar, and thanks for posting your great pictures! Much better than mine. It was a great tour and a great time. Never seen a brewery that was that protective of their yeast. A part of me is a little sad they are moving brewing from Battle Creek, but I'm glad the pub will still be there.
Also, I didn't want to contradict our tour guide, but that stuff about women brewers being burned as witches is BS.

So what will the good employees of Kellogg pour on their corn flakes once Arcadia moves out of town?

Maybe this burning of women brewers is why Adolphus Busch, Eberhard Anheuser, Fredrick Miller, Joseph Schlitz, Adolf Coors, & Captain Pabst had to flee Germany and came to the USA.
I'd kick them out of my country too if they were burning their female competition.
Come to think of it, if I was young and single I think I might have to give Stacy a social call, could a Brewster be the "perfect woman"?
I haven't been in Western Michigan since yesterday, but I always feel I need to go back soon.
