2012 Suds & Snow - Traverse City

The Suds & Snow Festival is a snow shoeing, Michigan microbrew event that will be held on March 3, 2012 from 1:30 - 6:30pm at Timber Ridge Resort in Traverse City, MI. This festival is unlike any other beer festival that we have experienced.
Timber Ridge is a campground and RV resort that features miles of generously wooded trails. These trails are what makes the Suds & Snow festival so special. The festival has beer stations set up along these heavily wooded trails, and participants are encouraged to snow shoe along them and enjoy nature with their favorite craft beer.

This year features eight different breweries to enjoy. Some of those set to make an appearance are Right Brain Brewery, Short's, and North Peak, which are all from the Traverse City area. Other Breweries featured are Mt. Pleasant Brewing Company, Bells, Arbor Brewing, and Schmohz. Leelanau Cellars will also be in attendance providing wine for all the non-beer drinkers.

Suds & Snow also showcases great food from local restaurants. Some of those featured this year are Red Messa Grill, TraVino, Scheldes, Mackinaw Brewing Company, and The Truck Mobil Eatery. Paul and I have always been impressed with the food selection at the festival, and this year looks to be no different.

If you are looking for something to do in the Traverse City area this weekend, what can be better than a snow shoeing beer festival? If you have never been to the Suds & Snow Festival, you should check it out this year. I promise you will have so much fun that you will be attending every year from here on out.

Tickets: $20.00 in advance, $30.00 at the door. Admission includes a commemorative pint glass (to first 700 purchasers), one pint of craft beer of your choice, a trail pass, and live music. Proceeds will benefit Child and Family Services of Northwestern Michigan and T.A.R.T. Trails.
