  • Rob says:

    Will there be multiple token charges for certain beers like you did at the winter festival?

    • Shannon (Communications Manager) says:

      Yes, there will be. We haven’t determined which those beers will be yet, but will add that information soon. Thanks.

      • Rob says:

        Thanks, Shannon. The multiple token beers were worth it at the Winter Fest.

        • Shannon (Communications Manager) says:

          I’m glad you think so, Rob – thanks for your feedback. We really do only institute the multiple token policy for special beers that cost us 2 or 3 times as much to buy – we think it’s worth it too to be able to have those available at the festival for folks to try.

          • Rick Kirchner says:

            Shannon, I too think it’s a good and fair way to bring in special beers. That way more people get to try the unique offerings that are Brewed in Michigan.

  • Konrad says:

    Do you know if any of the brewers plan to bring non-alcoholic options? I’m here for the beer, but I certainly enjoy a well-crafted root beer on occasion (as might the Designated Drivers).

    • Shannon (Communications Manager) says:

      Hi Konrad – Schmohz is the only brewery that has told us they’ll be bringing root beer (and it’s very tasty). Three other selections on the list are “rootbeer-ish” – but to my knowledge they all contain alcohol (Blue Tractor’s Root Beer Rye – Spiced Brown Ale, Mount Pleasant’s Birch Sap Root Beer Ale, and Original Gravity’s Root Down Ginger Beer). Sometimes breweries surprise us though and bring a root beer that they don’t tell us about in advance, so keep an eye out as you wander the festival.

      You may also want to check the food vendor area. Remember that you can also bring in whatever non-alcoholic beverages you like, provided they are not in glass containers. I hope that helps!

  • Chris says:

    Will programs be available for printing online in advance of the festival? With this many beers, it might be more like a book now:)

    • danielle says:

      Do u have days and times of special releases?

      • Shannon (Communications Manager) says:

        Days and times for specialty tappings will be listed in the program as available based on the information we received from each brewery. This will match the information posted here in the blog – so if a beer says “timed release” above but doesn’t give a time, the only way to find out is to visit the brewery’s table at the festival.

  • dan o says:

    I have 3 tickets for Fri available. I’m located in the Lansing area. Face value. email crookedtree@gmail

  • Jon F says:

    I have two tickets available for Saturday selling at face value. I’m in the Detroit area. If you’re interested, reply to this comment with your email address and I’ll contact you. Thanks!

  • James M says:

    I really need one ticket for Friday. I emailed Dan… I’m in Ann Arbor, though. jamorris1979 @ gmail . Thank you!

  • Jon F says:

    Hi Renee – Sorry to say but I sold them just before I saw your response. Good luck with the search. Cheers.

  • Jenn says:

    Can someone tell me if I buy an Enthusiast membership online now if I’ll get a printable card or something to use Saturday at the fest and at breweries next week? Also, is there a list of participating breweries for the discount (and what is the discount, always $1 off first beer? And good on happy hour too?) Thanks!!

    • Shannon (Communications Manager) says:

      Hi Jenn – if you buy a membership online now, you can use your purchase receipt as confirmation of your membership to get in early to the festival. As far as using it at breweries, it’s up to the individual discretion of each brewery if they’ll allow this or need to see a card, so I recommend calling ahead. We do not have a list of breweries participating in the $1 your first pint at this time, so again – calling ahead is the best policy. It’s also up to each brewery whether they’ll honor this during happy hour – though I have heard that many don’t, since their beer is already discounted at that time.

        Thanks Shannon! I’ll bring along a printed copy of our order to the fest as well as to the breweries and hope for the best!

  • Patty says:

    I heard Bell’s pulled out? I’m assuming it is true b/c their are no longer on the tap list. Just looking for clarification.

    • Shannon (Communications Manager) says:

      Hi Patty. Yes, that’s true – Bell’s is no longer participating in this festival.
