The Grillin’ Guys welcome new sponsor, Best Chance Too.  We are looking forward to checking in with captains Dave Engel and Bill Bale for Lake Michigan Updates all summer long.

Although many customers already have dates reserved for the 2012 season, Best Chance Too does have a few selected open charter dates available.  Go to and click on the name of a port in the Calendar to see the open charter dates for that particular port.

We do expect that it won’t be long before we are mostly booked for the season, so if you are interested in booking one of these open dates, please contact Capt. Bill Bale at 616-292-6098 right away.



2012 Winter BeerFest  SOLD OUT

2012 Winter BeerFest SOLD OUT

The Grillin’ Guys will be broadcasting LIVE from 5/3 Ball Park the morning of the Festival and hangin’ out all day.

In this picture from last year is BBQ Bob, Scott Winters, Dianna Stampfler, and Michelle McKormick.

The 7th Annual Winter Beer Festival will take place Saturday, February 25th, 2012 at the Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park, just north of Grand Rapids. The Winter Festival is a unique opportunity to sample some of the best beers in the world, all brewed in Michigan. We are expecting more than 50 Michigan craft breweries to participate and there will be more than 300 different beers available to sample. The event is open from 1:00-6:00pm. Enthusiast Members of the Michigan Brewers Guild will be allowed to enter the Festival an hour early at Noon. The Festival will take place in the outfield parking lot at the ballpark and breweries will be located within several large tents. The tents, combined with body heat will help take the edge off the temperature, but please recognize that the Festival is an outdoor event and dress accordingly. Hats, mittens, boots and long-johns are recommended to keep you warm. We are planning to have warming fires again, but only if the weather cooperates with low wind conditions. It would be helpful if everyone could hoist a Michigan beer and do a fair weather dance. We are hoping for good weather for a late February day in Michigan, but the Festival will take place snow, rain or shine.

15 drink tokens are included with a ticket and each token is good for one 3 ounce beer sample. Additional tokens are available for purchase inside the Festival for 50 cents each. Local West Michigan bands will be the featured live entertainment. Food will be available for purchase.

Festival attendees must be 21 years of age or older and have ID to enter. Designated Drivers are encouraged and DD tickets will be available for $5 each.

Please look for information to be posted on the MASH participating breweries and other information as it becomes available. Please feel free to make a post of your own if you are organizing a bus or have something else to share.

Cheers, and see you at the Festival!

Grillin’ Guys Winner

Dan Stephens of Lowell was the winner of the Grillin’ Guys Jacket a few weeks ago.  Dan lives in Lowell, home of Barbecue Bob and Randy Joppie, so this win is kinda cool.  Dan answered a call in question correctly.

As we learned of Mr. Stephens win, we knew who he was as he used to coach baseball with Bob.
