With temps in the upper 80s and humidity to match, Lansing’s REO Town attracted a record number of thirsty people to its Second Annual Lansing Beer Fest. While the official event ran 1 to 6 p.m., a line of 45 VIP ticketholders were grateful for the noon jumpstart on more than 30 vendors in attendance. Throughout the day, the audience would swell to 1,000, making me grateful my husband and I had worn matching garish Hawaiian shirts to be able to locate each other as we tried different sides of the five-block area. The shirts also turned strangers into friends.

 Chill, Wind, and a Little Rain Won't Deter a Soldout Crowd at Detroit Fall Beer Fest

As always, the Michigan Brewers Guild Detroit Fall Beer Festival didn't disappoint. With 60 breweries and over 450 beers available, there was enough to satisfy everyone's thirst. This is the second year they offered the festival on Friday and the 5th year on Saturday, and I really enjoy it because the breweries showcase their fall seasonal beers such as Oktoberfests, Pumpkin Beers, Brown Ales, Stouts, Barleywines, and different barrel-aged beers.
