 Michigan Princess Riverboat TH

On Friday, May 11th from 6pm to 11pm is the Spring Brew Cruise on Michigan Princess Riverboat.

This Spring Brew Cruise will feature over 40 spring and summer seasonal beers and ciders. We picked the best seasonal beers from Michigan, out-of-state and imported to get a well rounded list.

What pairs with great beer? Of course, Shelby & Jake are a husband and wife duo formed back in 2008. The two began playing music together in their living room and have since developed their unique acoustic style and full sound. Jake is a multi-instrumentalist playing guitar, drums, and singing in their band while Shelby sings lead vocals and plays rhythm guitar. They perform a wide variety of music from classic rock to country to current hits.

Tickets are $20 which includes light appetizers and the boat cruise.

You can buy most of the beers/ciders on the list for $4 for a 12oz beer/cider or $5 for a 16oz beer/cider. If you want to sample it will be 4 - 4oz sample tokens for $5. The sampler gives you a chance to try several beers/ciders before committing to a full one.

Event Times:

  • Event opens at 6pm
  • Boat leaves at 7pm
  • Boat docks at 10pm
  • Event ends at 11pm
