Cool off with some brews at the Michigan Beer Festival


  • Instagram @MIbrewers

Beer! Beer! We love beer! And thankfully for us, Michigan is full of delicious beer made by local breweries for our tasting pleasure. Now in its 19th year, the festival will offer beers from more than 100 breweries. Plus, there will be food to purchase too. All of your favorite local breweries will be showing off their classic summer beers, but you may even find some new, undiscovered brewery that will top your beer snob list. Tickets are sold out for the Saturday event, but Friday is still available.

Event goes from 5-9 p.m. on Friday and 1-6 p.m. on Saturday; Tickets are $40 online and $45 at the door (if available); 5 E. Cross St., Ypsilanti.
