Some of these beers will be available at restaurants and bars in Downtown Adrian during the Blues-n-Brews Tap Takeover on Friday, October 2nd.

Two Michigan blues bands will provide entertainment during the festival. Jackson-based band, Kevin Nichols and Blue Tuesday, will play from 3:30-6:00 P.M. and Broken Arrow Blues Band, from Brighton, take the stage from 6:30-9:00 P.M.

“It’s great to see the Blues-n-Brews Festival continue to grow each year and bring in people from across the area,” said Catrina Ossmann, director of the Lenawee County Conference and Visitors Bureau.

Tickets for the event are $25 each in advance and are available online at blues-n-brews.com or at participating KeyBank locations. Tickets are $30 each at the door (21 and over with valid identification only). Admission includes 10 drink tickets to sample some of the finest breweries from across Michigan.
