    If I follow the link to purchase tickets online it doesn’t appear to get me any closer to actually purchasing any tickets. Looking forward to keeping the streak alive!

    I can’t wait for this festival, I had such a blast at the last years festival.

  • MICHmash says:

    Is there a list of breweries that are selling tickets?

    A group of us from West Olive went to the Fest last year and had a great time. We have our tickets already for this years event hoping that it will be every bit as fun as last year. We did see a few issues last year that could use some improvement. The first thing we saw was the parking lot getting backed up. There was no one directing traffic so people were parking in front of the openings into the other large parking lots. This was finnally addressed and corrected but could of been avoided with some traffic control. Ice on the side walks was another problem. I hope that they will be cleared off better this year. The biggest issue last year was not enough bathroom capacity. I hope to see more restrooms open or at least more porta jons. One other thing that would be nice is to spread things out a little more. The Ball Park has plenty of room that was not utilized. Anyway that’s my two cents on last year and we are looking forward to another great time with some good friends and some awesome Michigan brewed beer at this years event. Cheers!!!!!!

    Are there breweries in the metro Detroit area selling tickets to this years winter beer festival? If so, please supply a list.

    Group of 7 from Lansing looking for a bus ride to the festival – there’s a convenient place to meet right on I-96 – the Flying J Truck Stop. We caught a ride on a bus coming from Webberville last year – but those folks aren’t getting one this year. Any help would be appreciated!
