After a few months off we're back with two beer and grilled cheese pairing events. The first pairing will be held on Tuesday, August 25th at Midtown Brewing Co. and all the the artisanal grilled cheese sandwiches will be made in-house. This event will feature 5 handcrafted beers from Tri-City Brewing Co.
Good Truckin DinerThe second will be held at REO Town Pub in Lansing on Monday, August 31st at 7PM and will feature grilled cheese sandwiches from Good Truckin Diner. This event will feature beer from Mountain Town Brewing Company.

Both event 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 mini grilled cheese sandwiches. As these tend to sell out quickly, we encourage you to purchase tickets ahead of time. We're excited to continue offering these unique events and we'll see you out at the Beer & Grilled Cheese in August.
