Want To Enjoy A Cold, Craft Brew? These 5 Michigan Beer Fests Can Help With That!
This is a list of 5 unique beer festivals that are happening around the Mitten. When I was choosing from the multitude of different festivals to write about, I had a very difficult time picking. So if you don’t see one you can make, make sure you check out these other ones!
Detroit Fall Beer Festival
This festival gives you TWO opportunities to sample delicious craft beer; Oct. 23rd from 5-9 pm, as well as Oct. 24th from 1-6 pm. Ticket prices vary from $40-$50 depending on what day you’re purchasing and when you get your ticket as well. You can get all that info HERE. Also, this is one of the bigger fests of the season, boasting more than 600 different beers to choose from!
Founder’s Harvest Party
This Harvest Party is going to feel more like a private party rather than a beer festival. Founder’s Brewing Co. is throwing their party on Oct. 17th, starting at 11 am, and it’s all in celebration of their seasonal release of “Harvest Ale”. But, you can’t get your tickets in advance, you can ONLY get them at the door… so it’s first come first serve. Tickets are only ten bucks, though!
This festival has all the appeal of drinking craft beer, with the added fun bonus of dressing up like a zombie! This is definitely for you if you’re a Walking Dead fan, lol! Get your undead self out to Grand Rapids on Oct. 17th and get your cold brew on from 4-8 pm. This fest also offers you two options when it comes to tickets; $39 for general admin or $49 for VIP.
Battle of the Breweries
The battle between 16 different Grand Rapids breweries (along with 3 hard cider makers & 5 wineries), begins at 11 am Sept. 26th. From 11-5 pm, you have a chance to sample the different beverages and vote for your favorite! Plus, you can feel good about enjoying some cold brews because this beer fest is ALSO a benefit for Cystic Fibrosis. Get your ticket info HERE!
Lansing On Tap
This 2nd annual beer fest is hosted in part by us, 97.5 NOW FM! Last year was a blast, and I’m so excited to see you again this year! It all goes down Nov. 7th at The Summit Sports & Ice Arena. Tickets are only $35; your ticket gets you in for 4 hours of sampling from 1-5 pm, a souvenir glass, and live music entertainment! Plus, you can expect Finely’s Grill & Smokehouse to be there for some delicious bbq! Get more info and your tickets by clicking HERE!
