February 2013 brought the 4th Annual Winter Microbrew & Music Festival to Traverse City, MI with plenty of food, music, and brews. Over 50 breweries from around the world featured over 200 different beers, ciders, and meads spread out among the festival’s several tents. Not just a beer festival, the focus also included dozens of bands including one tent featuring exclusively polka for the entire duration and also a multitude of food vendors offering everything from venison specialities to hot dogs, veggie chili, gyros, ribs and more.

Recap of 4th Annual Michigan Brewers Guild Detroit Fall Beer Fest

This is the fourth year of the Michigan Brewers Guild Detroit Fall Beer Festival and it has been growing bigger and bigger each year. In fact, this festival has grown so much that the Brewers Guild decided to make it a two-day festival! For Paul and me, this was our second time attending this festival. I really love the fact that it is located in the heart of Detroit at the popular Eastern Market. I love the Eastern Market. We try to make it down there whenever we are in the area on a day that it is open. I am glad that the Brewers Guild decided to just extend the festival to two days rather than move it to an alternate location. I really feel that there is no better location within the Detroit City Limits to hold this wonderful festival.

Weather, Marquette Combine for Successful U.P. Fall Beer Fest

Saturday, September 8, was your typical, run-of-the-mill late summer day in Michigan: chilly, cloudy, partly sunny, fairly warm, and with periods of light showers and no showers at all. Also included: U.P. Beer Fest 2012, set in Lower Mattson Harbor Park in beautiful Marquette, MI. The wife and I (well, mostly I) were anticipating a great day sampling the wares of more than 35 Michigan craft brewers, along with some local food and musical entertainment. In all, we were looking forward to five hours of controlled and polite beer mayhem!
