 Beer and Popcorn Pairing

In May, we're offering 3 beer and popcorn paring events. The first will be held at REO Town Pub in Lansing on Monday, May 12th. In honor of American Craft Beer Week which May 12th to May 18th we'll be featuring New Belgium Brewing Company which is our first non-Michigan brewery. This event will feature popcorn from Cravings Gourmet Popcorn out of Old Town, Lansing.
The second pairing will be held on Monday, May 19th at the Bad Brewery in Mason and will feature popcorn from Cravings Gourmet Popcorn. The third pairing will be held on Sunday, May 25th at Pike 51 Brewery in Hudsonville and will also feature popcorn from Cravings Gourmet Popcorn.

All three events are casual, come-as-you-are affairs that will be done in the style of traditional beer dinners.

Included in the ticket are 5 – 4oz to 6oz beers paired with 5 flavors of popcorn. As these tend to sell out quickly, we encourage you to purchase tickets ahead of time from our website where specific times and details are available. We're excited to continue offering these unique events and we'll see you out at the Beer & Popcorn Pairing in May.
