Go Great Brews On The Move
Sunshine and warmer temperatures make summertime in Pure Michigan the perfect time to sample our crisp, cool craft beers. Fortunately, when you Go Great Lakes Bay, there are plenty of fun, fresh ways for you to switch things up in the craft beer scene this season. Here are just three of our favorite new ways to test out what’s on tap:
Bay City's Sunrise Pedal Trolley
Take up your post on the Sunrise Pedal Trolley, where you and up to 14 friends can pedal your way along the streets of Bay City on a craft beer adventure. While there's no DWP (Drinking While Pedaling), you can quench your thirst and try different craft beers at each and every stop along the way.
Sunrise Pedal Trolley offers 2- and 4-hour themed rides each day of the week. In addition to weekly themed tours, Sunrise Pedal Trolley also encourages creative custom tours, like their featured Craft Beer Tour. A 2-hour tour costs just $20 per person (8 person minimum) so book your Sunrise Pedal Trolley excursion today.
Frankenmuth's Mid-Michigan Beer Tours
If you like the idea of a craft beer tour, but prefer the idea of being chauffeured around in a luxury bus, look no further than Frankenmuth's Mid-Michigan Beer Tours.
Groups of 8-16 can hop aboard the bus and enjoy flights of beer at four different Mid-Michigan brewery and taproom destinations on trips typically lasting between 4-5 hours. Along the way, you'll be treated to yummy Michigan-made snacks and you'll wrap up with local pizza on the return trip. For just $90 per person, you can book your Mid-Michigan Beer Tour today!
Tapped: Downtown Midland's Craft Beer Festival
The newest addition to the Go Great Lakes Bay beer scene is Tapped: Midland's Craft Beer Festival, set to fill Downtown Midland with all things hoppy, malty, and good on Saturday, June 20, 2015. This first-ever festival promises to bring together the best of both worlds - proudly brewed-in-Michigan craft beer and handcrafted goods.
The festivities kick off on June 20th when the Makers Market opens, showcasing vendors who embrace the arts of true craftsmanship. After you hit the Maker's Market, mosey on over to the Craft Beer Tent for - you guessed it - Michigan craft beer! At the Tapped craft beer tasting tent, you'll be able to sample some of Pure Michigan's best, including Bell's, Tri-City Brewing Co., Midland Brewing Co., Dark Horse, Right Brain, Arcadia, and more (full list here).
When the Craft Beer Tent closes down, the city-wide Tap Takeovers begin! That's right: for one night, brewers will take over the taps at several establishments in Downtown Midland, featuring beers of their choosing and food pairings to cap off your evening. No tickets are necessary - just head to downtown Midland and let the craft beer celebration keep on flowing.
Admission tickets to Tapped's Craft Beer Tent are $20 per person and are limited in quantity, so order your tickets online now!
When you prep to take on any of summer's hottest new craft beer experiences, be sure to choose one of our regional hotels, where you can rest your head after a long day of sampling some of Michigan's best brews.
