12.38. 7th Annual Winter Beer Festival

February 25, 2012

The 7th Annual Winter Beer Festival will take place Saturday, February 25th, 2012 at the Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park, just north of Grand Rapids. The Winter Festival is a unique opportunity to sample some of the best beers in the world, all brewed in Michigan. We are expecting more than 50 Michigan craft breweries to participate and there will be more than 300 different beers available to sample. The event is open from 1:00-6:00pm. Enthusiast Members of the Michigan Brewers Guild will be allowed to enter the Festival an hour early at Noon. The Festival will take place in the outfield parking lot at the ballpark and breweries will be located within several large tents. The tents, combined with body heat will help take the edge off the temperature, but please recognize that the Festival is an outdoor event and dress accordingly. Hats, mittens, boots and long-johns are recommended to keep you warm. They are planning to have warming fires again, but only if the weather cooperates with low wind conditions. It would be helpful if everyone could hoist a Michigan beer and do a fair weather dance. There is a winter weather advisory for the surrounding area, but the Festival will take place snow, rain or shine.
15 drink tokens are included with a ticket and each token is good for one 3 ounce beer sample. Additional tokens are available for purchase inside the Festival for 50 cents each. Local West Michigan bands will be the featured live entertainment. Food will be available for purchase.

Festival attendees must be 21 years of age or older and have ID to enter. Designated Drivers are encouraged and DD tickets will be available for $5 each.

Festival Location:

Fifth Third Ballpark
4500 West River Dr NE
Comstock Park, MI 49321
