11th Annual Winter Beer Festival

. August 8, 2015.

Later this month, thousands of patrons will brave the snow and cold in pursuit of one thing — beer! The 11th annual Winter Beer Festival, taking place near Grand Rapids, will feature approximately 1000 different craft beers from over 100 Michigan breweries. Guests can sample at their leisure (each ticket comes with 15 tasting tokens, good for a 3 oz. sample) while listening to local bands. Other entertainment will include ice sculpting demonstrations, craft merchants and plenty of food. If the beer doesn’t do the trick, fire pits will help patrons warm up. Designated drivers are welcome to bring in their own non-alcoholic beverages, and water dispensers will be placed around the event. Parking is available, as is a shuttle service. Pre-registration for the event is required. Check the Winter Beer Festival website for details.
