Toast on the Coast: August 25 - St. Clair Shores

Toast on the Coast takes over Fishbone’s in St. Clair Shores for a lakeside summer fete filled with brews, fish boils and bands.
Inaugural Toast on the Coast takes over Fishbone's (23722 Jefferson Avenue) in St. Clair Shores on Saturday, August 25, 2012. The event, sponsored by Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace and powered by ShowClix, runs from 4 p.m. until midnight and features over 75 beers, with special emphasis on Michigan craft brews. Tickets are only $25 with proceeds benefiting Camp Casey, a Michigan-based horseback riding program for kids with cancer

“We have been scouting the perfect location for an eastside event for a while now, and when the opportunity to work with Fishbone’s in St. Clair Shores came up, we jumped at the chance,” said Jason Dritsan, owner of Liquid Events Detroit, organizer of the event. “The outdoor atmosphere is perfect for a summer beer fest, and the large footprint will allow us to grow this event in the years to come.”

While the beers are flowing and the crawfish and shrimp are boiling, guests can groove to the musical styling of the Brian Sheehan Duo, Acoustic After Party and DJ Erno the Inferno.

For the do-it-yourselfers, Toast on the Coast is hosting the Home Brewing Challenge, presented by Adventures in Homebrewing, Dragonmead Microbrewery, and Kuhnhenn's Brewing World. Entries will be divided into six categories and judged by professional local brewers; winners will be announced at Toast on the Coast. A prize pack valued at over $150 will be awarded to the winner of each category. Entry is free but entrants must adhere to official rules detailed on the website.
