Frankenmuth Brewery Kicks off Summer Music Stage on The Beach at Campus Martius

When plans of the Beach at Campus Martius were first disclosed earlierthis year, Frankenmuth Brewery’s Brand Director, Maher Sarafa saw the perfect opportunity to promote its newest beer brand, Twisted Helles Summer Lager in a vibrant, new beach setting located in the middle of Downtown Detroit. “After reading an article about the urban beach at Campus Martius, I instantly knew the Twisted Helles brand was a natural tie-in with the fun and excitement the Beach was going to create.” said Sarafa . “Sand, wood deck, beach chairs and outdoor bar sounded too good to be true, but Campus Martius delivered the vision and then some.” The result has been a win-win partnership for both the brewery and Campus Martius Park.
