Brainy brew tour
Motor City Brew Tours — the thinking beer lover’s answer to a pub crawl — brings their behind-the-scenes walking tours of Michigan breweries to Ann Arbor on Saturday, August 11 from 11:30am-4pm. “You get to go behind the scenes and get a better understanding of how the brew pub operates,” says tour creator Steve Johnson. A2 beer fans start at Blue Tractor Brewery, then get a look at Arbor Brewing and Grizzly Peak, with a stop for lunch and lots of sampling of Michigan-made beers in between. Register online or the day of at Blue Tractor Brewing. $34.99. 207 E. Washington St. 248-850-2563. www.motorcitybrewtours.com.
