The 2017 Art & Craft BeerFest will be held on Friday, January 27th from 6pm to 10pm (5pm for VIP) and Saturday, January 28th from 5pm to 10pm (4pm for VIP). The Festival will be kicked off with a ceremonial firkin tapping on January 27th at 5pm.

Art & Craft BeerFest is an indoor art, beer and music festival where you can go back and forth between four venues. All venues are located on the same block, just a short walk from one another.

With four venues we're able to incorporate more art, more beer, and more music. The four venues that will host Art & Craft BeerFest are The Cadillac Room (Inside Riverview Church), Robin TheatreAA Creative Corridor & REO Town Pub (Heated Tent) which all are located on same block in REO Town, Lansing.

The beauty of this event is that when you purchase one ticket, it gives you access to all four venues. Each venue will have different art, bands, beer, wine and cider. The art will range from photography to metal sculptures to paintings. On top of a great variety of art, there will also be a wide range of music such as country, classic rock, alternative rock and more.

Much like last year's festival, we’ll be featuring beers from only Right Brain Brewing Company in Traverse City. We'll have 20 beers from Right Brain Brewing Co. and have several rare beers such as Mangalitsa Pig Porter, Imperial CEO, North Shore Iron Works and many more. Don't worry if you don’t like beer. To please all of the non beer drinkers, there will be Blake's Hard Cider with 10 ciders that are mainstays, seasonals and rare selections. This year will also feature a variety of Michigan wines.

With any festival good food is a must, we have some great food vendors for you. This year we have Pie Hole Pizza TruckGump's BBQ and Mark's Place. On top of those Good Truckin Diner and Saddleback BBQ will stay opener later for the festival.
