Beer enthusiasts will have hundreds of reasons to celebrate this fall when the inaugural Ballpark Ale Fest takes place inside Fifth Third Ballpark. Fifth Third Ballpark is home to the West Michigan Whitecaps who began playing in the Grand Rapids area in 1994. Ballpark Ale Fest is a craft beer fest that combines America’s favorite pastime with America’s favorite craft beers.

The fest will take place on Saturday, October 17 and will feature 50 different craft brewers from all over the country. The fest will also include live music, food, and more than 100 unique American craft beers. “The goal of Ballpark Ale Fest is to showcase American craft beer with an emphasis on fall beers from all over the country” said Josh Seago, founder of the festival. “It’s going to be an opportunity to sample a wide variety of American craft beers and really find out what styles and breweries you like,” Seago said. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience American craft beer at the ballpark!

General admission tickets include admission, beer sampling, 18 sample tickets, and a commemorative sample glass. Designated Drivers will receive complimentary soda and water. Tickets to Ballpark Ale Fest are available online at Only guests 21 and over may enter the Fest. A photo ID must be presented with your ticket.

Gull Lake View Golf Club & Resort and West Michigan Beer Tours have partnered to showcase two of the region’s biggest attractions for the inaugural West Michigan Craft Brew Open to be held Oct. 16-18.


Now in its second year, Frankfort Beer Week is a weeklong series of beer and food-themed events happening in the Lake Michigan coastal city of Frankfort and the neighboring village of Elberta. A celebration of northern Michigan’s growing craft beer industry and established food culture, Frankfort Beer Week is scheduled for October 5-10, 2015.


The Brewers Guild U.P. Beer fest crowd was spectacular to see when we walked down toward the harbor in Marquette to get in line. Due to an early morning tweet, we knew the festival was sold out, and the crowd was going to be epic. One positive aspect of any of the guild festivals is how well run they are. Even with an huge crowd, and a line of people around the waterfront, the line is taken care of quickly and effortlessly once the festival is open. Which is great when you are excited to get in and try all the fabulous Michigan beers!

With occasional light rain and cooler temperatures, this year’s Burning Foot Beer Festival may not have fully lived up to the name, but that’s o.k. because the thousands who attended the sold out beach festival had no complaints as it certainly delivered on the beer. Over 35 of the best lakeshore and surrounding breweries brought to Pere Marquette beach in Muskegon well over a hundred different beers including many new to the area. Add to the mix great local and national bands, amazing beer-influenced food, and the beautiful beach and the result is a success.


Beer City Festivals, known for events with hard to find craft beers, and patrons hobnobbing with microbrewery owners & brewers, is teaming up with Fermenta for downtown Grand Rapid's first ALL MICHIGAN tasting event. Michigan's finest beers, ciders, wines, and spirits are eagerly waiting for you to pair them with award winning food at this themed tasting event. Tickets go on sale today.


For the third year in a row, nearly twenty Grand Rapids area breweries are once again collaborating with Friends of Grand Rapids Parks to raise money for their Urban Forest Project, an initiative to maximize the tree canopy within the city.
