Winter Beer Festival

The Winter Beer Festival is fast approaching. For Guild members – the board is having a fest-only planning meeting at Arbor Brewing on Thursday, Feb. 9th at 3:00 pm. Interested guild members are welcome to join us.

For beer DRINKERS – here’ s your reminder to get your tickets now! They’re available online and at select establishments or by calling us at 517-327-5004.

If you’re interested in a bus from the east side of the state, Arbor Brewing is chartering one from – you guessed it – Ann Arbor! Contact them at 734-213-1393 by Feb. 18th to reserve your spot. (Bus is $25 for Beer Nuts – $30 for everyone else)

If anyone else is working on combined transportation – let us know and we’ll help spread the word!

Also – we’ve received some feedback that we’d have to be nuts to expect you to drink outside in February. Well, we are nuts, but we’re not unhospitable. We’ll have a heated tent covering Turner Street which is nestled nicely between buildings that serve as a wind-block. We’ll also have a gallery turned warming-house as a respite from the elements . It should be only crazy enough to give you a story, but not cold enough to keep you from having a good time – so fear not and come to Lansing on February 25th!!

See you there – reach out with any questions.

    Fred, compliments to your whole team at MBG. The entire Schmohz crew loved the event and are really pumped for summer now. It was great to see people who love Michigan Beer come out from all over the whole state. I am uploading my photos now to the Schmohz website, and have read the articles that I found on Google news. Hope that we can do this again next year. We will get together soon for a beer, I have a couple suggestions to help grow this event!

    I thought the Winter Beer Festival was great. This was a first for me and my brother-in-law and our wives. While we would do this again, the only suggestions I have would be a bigger tent, possibly a water station, hot-pretzels to go with the great beer, and more bathrooms. I look forward to the summer beer festival and have it bookmarked on my calender.
