The Art & Craft BeerFest will be bigger than ever this year! We are excited that, this winter beerfest all happens inside the warmth of three, epic  REO Town venues. 
Start the night by checking into The Cadillac Room located at 1115 South Washington Avenue. Enjoy metal art sculptures from Ivan Iler, Dace Koenigsknecht, Paul Such and Colin Such.

Ivan Iler is a local artist that enjoys blending different types of mediums into his finished masterpieces. He uses many mediums as inspiration, such as; sculpting, carving, engraving, metal fabrication (including blacksmith), painting, leather smith, drafting and mechanical design.

While you sample Right Brain Brewery and Blake's Hard Cider enjoy the live music from various local bands. Friday night rock will fill your soul with The Black Barn Band and Lights and Caves. Saturday enjoy the smooth retro sounds of local favorite Joe Wright and North Country Flyers.

Next stroll over to AA Creative Corridor formerly known as Art Alley where you can immerse yourself in the photography from Geeks with Cameras. Geek with Cameras consist of Ariniko O’Meara, Nick Kwiatkowski, Marvin Hall and Leandro Martins. Enjoy photography from all over the great state of Michigan from local images all the way up into the UP.

Certain varieties of Right Brain Brewery and Blake’s Hard Cider will be on tap at A2 Creative Corridor. Friday enjoy Tim Heenan and his creative acoustic guitar/singing classics from the 70’s through today’s top country hits. Saturday enjoy the sounds of Abbey Hoffman, Mark Warner, and Tai Imani Hanna Project ending the night.

Finally stop by the REO Town Pub to see paintings from local artist Brad VanderMoere, his pieces will leave you thinking about the world around you.

Walk on through the REO Town Pub and listen to live music in the heated tent behind the pub. Five By Five and North Country Flyers will bring their classic sound on Friday night. Saturday enjoy Dee Hibber & Company along with Lansing favorites Lights and Caves with powerhouse band Vandalay ending the night. Reo Town Pub will have certain varieties of Right Brain Brewery and Blake’s Hard Cider available all night.

Make sure you enjoy all three venues and then walk through them all again just to sample another variety of beer or cider, enjoy the artwork on display or listen to that band that you have heard everyone talking about. Just remember to finish your drink before you go outside and keep your glass in a safe place.
