Just when you thought the summer fun was winding down, our friends at Motor City Brew Tours and I’m a Beer Hound have brought together a new Michigan beer festival to end the season in grand fashion. Dubbed the Lansing Beer Week, MCBW and Beer Hound will bring together the best in Michigan beer for seven days packed full of brew fun in Michigan’s capital.
Throughout the week of August 19 to August 25, Lansing’s new Michigan beer festival is offering enticing events for beer lovers everywhere. Frankenmuth Brewery will be heading out to Lansing to take part in the Michigan Beer Tasting Boat Cruise on the historic Michigan Princess Riverboat. For the price tag of just under $50, beer boating cruisers will enjoy a four-hour trip up and down Grand River and have the ability to check out 25 beers and ciders including some from Frankenmuth Brewery. In addition to the cruise, ticket buyers will receive 15 drink tickets to purchase the Michigan beer of their choice and also get to dine on delectable appetizers.
The fun doesn’t stop there, as Lansing Beer Week continues on with more beer tastings, brew tours and sud-soaked amusement. From Sunday’s bar-to-bar bike ride and sampling events offered on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday to a local brewery tour on Saturday, the chance to try new Michigan beers will never run out. For a different perspective on Michigan beer and food pairings, Wednesday’s festivities will offer a beer and chocolate pairing at Art Alley, while there is a beer and burger combo at REO Town Pub. No matter your preference for Michigan beer, there will be more kinds of brew than you will know what to do with.
They say that traditionally you should give two weeks before taking vacation time off at work, so (if we’re right on our math) that means you should ask today so that you can enjoy Lansing Beer Week to your heart’s full content. Check out what is sure to be the next great Michigan beer festival, come say to the Frankenmuth team on the Michigan Princess Riverboat and be sure to hit the rest of the events.
