Beer Festivals


The fourth annual Lansing Beer Week will take place from June 19th to June 27th, 2015. This weeklong celebration will feature Michigan craft beer themed events throughout the greater Lansing area. The goal of Lansing Beer Week is to raise awareness of the craft beer industry while promoting patronage to local establishments and stimulating the greater Lansing area’s retail economy and Michigan made products.


Slated for July 31­–August 7, 2015, Ypsi-Arbor Beer Week’s second year will build on the success of last year’s inaugural event, featuring craft beer events in locations where craft beer is shared, sold, consumed and loved – area bars, restaurants, and retailers.

On tap every May is a fantastic beer sampling event that takes place in Frankenmuth, MI. Over 60 breweries, cider makers, meaderies and beer vendors (distributors) were represented at the World Expo of Beer offering over 300 options, including many of our favorite Michigan beverages. The Mitten state’s beer was in attendance, and beers from all around the world are represented.

On August 29th, the warm summer sand of Muskegon's Pere Marquette Beach will play host to “Burning Foot,” the city’s first craft beer festival. From late afternoon through early evening, festival goers can enjoy some of the finest Michigan beer offerings with the beautiful shoreline of Lake Michigan serving as a backdrop. With as many as forty craft breweries and brewpubs expected to gather on the sand for the event, Burning Foot is poised to turn Muskegon’s beach into the perfect summer playground for craft beer lovers.

Usually when you think of Michigan International Speedway (MIS), you think of cars racing, the smell of rubber and oil in the air, the excitement of the crowd watching a race. With MIS and Experience Jackson Wine and Beer Fest the crowd was excited this weekend but their excitement was all about sampling wine, beer and food items.

With Muskegon now having a thriving downtown brewery scene, Parties in the Park is boosting the beer selection to accommodate evolving local tastes for more craft beer. Last year, the event featured rotating draft selections from downtown Pigeon Hill and Unruly breweries and this year the weekly event is planning on expanding taps and include more craft selections than ever. The expanded craft options were unveiled for the event at this year’s Party in the Mark, an event held annually at the Watermark 920 allowing attendees to vote on and help secure their favorite beers.

This year’s Beer City Springfest at the Hudsonville Fairgrounds was another success with amazing spring weather complementing a stellar lineup featuring food trucks, live music, and some of the best craft beer, cider, mead and spirits the area has to offer. This year my wife & I got to add a little “behind the scenes” to the experience as we were invited and took the opportunity to participate as volunteers. Being able to enjoy the festival both as an attendee as well as volunteer beer pourers for The Mitten Brewing Co. of Grand Rapids gave a unique perspective on this year’s great event.


What began a decade ago with a handful of Michigan brewers and a little over 100 attendees has grown into one of northern Michigan’s Memorial Day Weekend traditions. The Michigan Beer and Brat Festival celebrates its tenth anniversary on Saturday, May 23, 4-8pm (VIP event beginning 3pm).
