It was our first UP Fall Beer Festival but it was the 4th Annual UP Fall Beer Festival hosted by the Michigan Brewers Guild.
We found all of our favorite Michigan Craft Brewers. A bit like Christmas for Beer Enthusiasts.
A new favorite. I tried their Bourbon Barrel Black Sheep Black IPA. Oh my. So good and I don’t even like IPAs.
You’ve never been to a beer festival? So here is how it works:
- Purchase your ticket (well in advance because these events sell out)
- Have a plan because there is a lot beer to taste
- You’ll receive a packet of tokens, one glass and a program (don’t lose any of these items)
Some enthusiasts dress up.
I lost my sunglasses and had to borrow a 20-year-old pair from Jeff. I’m pretty sure everyone thought I was from the Sons of Anarchy. I wasn’t trying to dress up. Customs are not mandatory.
