Fall is the perfect time for pumpkin and harvest (fresh hopped) ales, and there are many different kinds for you to explore this weekend. Harvest ales are some of my very favorites, and many of them feature local Michigan Hops – for those of you interested in more exploration of Michigan Hops, I highly encourage you to pop over to the Michigan Hop Alliance tent, which is full of information and will be pouring multiple Michigan-hopped harvest ales for your enjoyment.

 Chill, Wind, and a Little Rain Won't Deter a Soldout Crowd at Detroit Fall Beer Fest

As always, the Michigan Brewers Guild Detroit Fall Beer Festival didn't disappoint. With 60 breweries and over 450 beers available, there was enough to satisfy everyone's thirst. This is the second year they offered the festival on Friday and the 5th year on Saturday, and I really enjoy it because the breweries showcase their fall seasonal beers such as Oktoberfests, Pumpkin Beers, Brown Ales, Stouts, Barleywines, and different barrel-aged beers.

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.
