Recap Of The 2015 Michigan International Speedway Wine And Beer Fest Presented By Experience JacksonWritten by Aimee West
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.
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.
