Ted Badgerow first brewed a big batch of beer in an
old milk vat from a dairy farm that was going out of
business. Using a friend's recipe, Badgerow's created a
eer he "thought was Heineken dark."
About ten years later, Badgerow and partner Chris
Shaver own and operate Ann Arbor's only beer-making
store, and have big plans for the future. Imagine this
- "Rick's American Cafe Riverwater" - or any
custom-brewed beer for local bars.
THE PARTNERS hold free workshops on the
history and techniques of beer making in their store
Fermentations, at 117 East Ann. The shop sells
equipment and ingredients for making a variety of beer
Jand wine, including Irish lager and banana or elderberry
Badgerow and Shaver opened the shop in October
hoping to educate people about the various types and

qualities of home brewed beers. They also hope to pave
the way for Ann Arbor's first "brew-pub," where they
would brew draft beers upon the request of local
establishments and serve their own beer at the brew-
A few obstacles, however, stand in the partners way.
First they need a license to sell imported beer in their
store. Even if they get this permit, they cannot sell
their homemade beer because it is prohibited in the
state of Michigan. Homebrewing beer was illegal
before 1979.
FERMENTATIONS are in the process of
applying for a Specially Designated Merchant license
to allow the sale of bottled beer and winefrom private
distributors. Badgerow said that they would sell mostly
imported beers but may also sell some wines made in

University officials will ask the
Board of Regents today to approve a
budget for fiscal year 1987-88 that
calls for an 11 percent increase in
the University's General Fund.
The General Fund is comprised
of money the University receives
from tuition, fees, and state
appropriated funds. The University
is requesting $45 million more
from the state than it received last

UNIVERSITY Vice President
for Government Relations Richard
Kennedy, said the $45 million
figure is the "optimum level of
appropriation we'd like to see" as a
way to solve problems caused by
past underfunding. Without the full
increase, Kennedy said the
University will reallocate internal
funds in an attempt to compensate,
but this may have "implications on
Lynn Schaefer, assistant to the

director of the Michigan
Department of Management of the
Budget, said the state is "looking at
a pretty constrained budget for next
year." She cited -a national
slowdown in economic growth as
one of the causes and predicted that
the University may not get all it
asks for. She added that the state
has other pressing needs to consider
as well.

Oxfam holds fast for hunger

One million Americans are expected to fast today, as
a part of Oxfam America's 13th annual "Fast for a
World Harvest." Oxfam's University liaison organized
a campus-wide effort to raise money for Oxfam.
World Hunger Education Action Committee
(WHEAC), the campus Oxfam representative, cannot
say how many students will be participating in the
fast. Group co-coordinator Jean Cilik said every

residence hall - except South Quad and West Quad -
is participating in tonight's fast. West Quad was not
organized to join the fast and South Quad is having a
special turkey dinner, so they decided not to participate.
SORORITIES, fraternities and co-ops were also
invited to participate; three sororities and most co-ops
have pledged suppport. Cilil said fraternities are not
participating because "we didn't put the effort into
