This year marked the 18th year of the annual Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Fest and featured over 100 Michigan breweries with 1,000+ beers. The event was held in Ypsilanti’s Depot Town Riverside Park and sold out for both the Friday and Saturday of the 2-day festival. Breweries were spread out among 4 different beer tents, with additional locations along the river and also located in the “Back 40’. An entertainment stage included a full lineup of live music and food vendors (including several breweries) were on hand to provide well-needed nourishment of the non-liquid variety.
