These are all the drinks you can have at Summer Beer Fest


When people say "beer" and "summer" in the same sentence, I automatically yell FUCK YES get super excited. My idea of heaven is dancing half-naked with AC Slater on the beach with a beer in hand forever until the end of time. 


When there's a potpourri of beers in one place, waiting for me to try them, I'm like a Corgi in a field of flowers, pleased with the universe and my place in it. 

One of metro Detroit's best ways to do this is happening this weekend, and not only are there over 35 breweries there offering cups of happiness, there's also five cidermakers (cideries? cider mills?), four varieties of kombucha, some hard sodas, and Truly Spiked and Sparkling, which I learned is like sparkling water with booze in it. Amazing. And don't worry, Tito's will be there too for those of us who like to just mix our vodka and water the old-fashioned way. 


Here's a full list of all of the dranks. Get your tickets here or just show up and fork over some dough. I'll be there doing a praise dance.
