We’re lucky to live in the midwest, home of iconic beers including KBS and Hopslam. It’s been a while since the Beer Buzz team last traveled to Michigan, so we packed up the bus and hit the road again. This time even more beer-loving Binny’s employees explored, tasted and learned about some of Michigan’s best breweries – and even a cidery – and we’re bringing our passion back for you.
Mom deserves special treatment every day – not just on Mother’s Day. Binny’s can’t help you with the flowers, but we have you covered for the perfect brunch cocktail. When it comes to brunch, don’t go too sweet – Mom’s sweet enough already! Try these three momtastic takes on the classic mimosa.
Don’t be fooled – this isn’t your average bloody mary. It’s a meal in a glass. You’ll experience sweet, bbq, sour and savory flavors that will make your taste buds water nonstop. We recommend whipping this one out for your tailgate or friendly brunch. As always, garnish like you mean it. Leave no blue cheese stuffed olive behind.
Save the date – Johnnie Walker Blue bottle engravings are back! It’s turned out to be an annual tradition here at Binny’s Beverage Depot and is a fantastic gift idea for the Scotch lover in your life. While you wait for the engraving professionals to do their thing, sample Johnnie Walker Platinum, Johnnie Walker Rye Cask, Johnnie Walker Double Black and Haig Club!

This one is a real fire breather. Sweet and smokey flavors engross your palate and your tongue is left with the heat from the chile vodka. Lucky for you the citrus saves the day with a cool touch. WARNING: You may have to limit yourself to one glass with this intense, but weirdly intriguing cocktail.
Consider this sweet and irresistible cocktail your new brunch go-to. It pairs well with a big pile of french toast or a plate of egg bennies. It’s refreshing and is 10x better when enjoyed outside. On a patio. Under the sun. Listening to 311. (Talk about a throwback) Can you tell we’re ready for warmer weather?
Your typical mule or buck cocktail contains ginger ale or ginger beer and citrus juice. We’ve added rum and Swedish punsch to our mix to create a sweet, dark and refreshing version. Best served in a copper mug. (MUG NOT PICTURED)
