The Ann Arbor Art Center's A2 Art & Brew fundraiser

The fundamental principle of combining food and beer to create a sublime experience for both eye and palate will be on display as The Ann Arbor Art Center revives its A2 Art & Brew fundraiser on Thursday, September 28th. During the event, downtown bars and eateries compete to showcase their innovation by creating artistic beer and food combos. Participants pay $45 to sample the wares and vote on the most aesthetically pleasing and tasting brews, bites and pairings. Competing venues include The Beer Grotto, Mani Osteria, Isalita Cantina, Pretzel Bell, HOMES, Conor O’Neill’s, Old German, Sava’s, Aventura and more. Attendees, of course, must be age 21 or older.
