Motor City Brew Tours is excited to offer another epic two-day Beercation in Traverse City. Fishpankakas had this to say on Trip Advisor TM “Call it "beercation" and call it GOLD! Went on the overnight bus trip. It was so well organized and flowed so well. Snacks and water were welcome and we were well taken care of. Five breweries, one brew tour and a free night in downtown Kzoo. Staying at the Radisson in Kzoo couldn't have been better. This was such a great experience that we're looking to do a private tour! “ (Reviewed April 16, 2015)

The 11th annual Winter Beer Festival was held Friday and Saturday, February 26th and 27th at Comstock Park’s Fifth Third Ball Park, just north of Grand Rapids. This year marked the second year of an expanded two day festival with the addition of a Friday afternoon session as the popular Saturday session continues to sell out very quickly each year. While last year’s event proved brutally cold with single digit temperatures and issues with freezing beer lines, this year’s festival featured much milder weather with temperatures reaching the mid 40’s.
