Can you hear that? It’s the sound of beer drinkers, sud suckers and brew enthusiasts stampeding through the streets of Frankenmuth to meet up at Heritage Park (located conveniently behind Frankenmuth Brewery) for The World Expo of Beer. One of Michigan’s biggest beer events, the brew festival is hitting Frankenmuth this weekend, May 18 and May 19, for a 48 hour mad dash of beer tasting and the announcement of the prestigious WEB medals.
With over 300 beers up for grabs this weekend, the WEB will show off dozens of different brews that come from not only Michigan breweries, but several world renowned brewhouses abroad, and offer distinct titles to the best of the bunch. Word on the street has it that a few Frankenmuth Brewery beers have made the medal cut, but to be sure, fans of our brewery should to come out to the event to hear the all exciting results firsthand.
So how do you get involved? Head to Heritage Park in Frankenmuth, bring $7 for admission (the money goes to charity) and take your free collector beer sampling mug around to the tent full of tables with beer gold. Enjoy the sights, the sounds and the camaraderie of your fellow beer drinkers, and soak up all things beers. For those, who aren’t as familiar with what goes into a good beer there will be several classes called “The Brewer’s Table” that will offer knowledge on pairing food with beers, and how to throw a cocktail party with hors d’oeuvres and chocolate.
Come enjoy what will be two beautiful days in downtown Frankenmuth that will leave you saying, “I love craft beer!” Also, be sure to stop by and see the Frankenmuth Brewery team as they will be handing out tastings of all your favorite Frankenmuth beers.
