November Brewery Spotlight – Bell’s Brewery

Bells Brewery Logo

One of the things we are passionate about here at the Malted Meeple and Ravenwood Castle is craft beer. We pride ourselves on having an excellent assortment of craft beers for the enjoyment of our guests. In our new monthly blog feature, the Brewery Spotlight, we raise our pints to the men and women who dedicate themselves to the brewing craft. This month, we raise our pints to our friends from Bell’s Brewery – a family-owned and operated brewery based out of Kalamazoo, Michigan. The story of Bell’s begins in the late 1970s when Larry Bell, the founder and namesake of the company, moved to Kalamazoo to attend Kalamazoo College. After completing his degree, he began working at the original Sarkozy Bakery, which sparked his interest…

A few months ago, we announced some exciting new changes at the Meeple, all of which are leading up to our upcoming move to 53 Milford Drive in downtown Hudson.

Giant monsters from across the globe have gathered to determine which Kaiju will ultimately reign supreme! The Giant Kaiju will need to smash buildings, and each other, to gain points. When another monster is nearby, you will have to use all of your brains and brawn to claw your way to victory. Prepare to smash the competition and claim the title of Supreme Kaiju! Kaiju Crush is a monstrously clever city-smashing game from our friends at Fireside Games! Though the game just released, Fireside was kind enough to leave a preview copy with us when they last visited The Malted Meeple in August, so our guests have been able to enjoy this smash hit a bit early! In Kaiju Crush, players take on the role…

November Milkshake Madness

Milkshake Flight

This month’s Milkshake Madness Competition was especially spooky, featuring the Nutferatu, The Great Pumpkin, and the Frankenshake. The Frankenshake rose as a delicious creation and the Great Pumpkin was a wonderful visit for our tastebuds, but it was the Nutferatu that haunted our votes and became the winner of the Milkshake of the Month for November! November is an exciting month as we see the cinematic entrance of the Justice League. We’re looking forward to the film’s release November 17th, and are doing our part to fuel the anticipation with a DC Universe themed Milkshake Madness Competition for this month! Explore a trio of DC Universe settings with the Smallville (Peanut Butter and Apples), the Atlantis (Blue Raspberry and Lime), and the Gotham (Fudge Chocolate…

What Does It Take To RPG?

D&D Character Sheet

What does it take to RPG? I remember the first time I was asked to play Dungeons & Dragons. I was a senior in high school and about to go to college when a friend of mine invited me to play D&D with some people on Saturday night. I was hesitant. I had played very few table-top RPG’s. I was not against the idea, but I knew almost nothing about it. My initial reaction to his invitation was, “but I don’t know how to play.” If I invited you to join my friends and I in a game of basketball, but you knew nothing about the sport or how to play, you might respond the same way. However, one of the greatest elements of an…
