    I have been a fan and consumer of Michigan Craft Beer since the inception in Michigan. All my purchases for home consumption are craft beer. I would be attending the Winter Beer Festival at Fifth Third Ball park if I didn’t feel as though the public was being fleeced by the high cost to enter the event. C’mon,, don’t you feel $40 for two pints of beer is a little steep? It appears Michigan Brewers Guild is pretty comfortable in the saddle, and not much interested further promoting good Michigan Beer.

    I am also a fan and consumer of Michigan Craft Beer. I would like to offer the contrary position that $35 (bought my ticket online), or even $40, is a perfectly reasonable price. The festival is much more than a chance to drink “two pints of beer,” its a chance to drink some of the hardest to find, most well crafted, delicious beers from a group of brewers that include some of the best in the US, if not the world. Moreover, the festival serves as a celebration of these things, as well as a chance to meet up with other lovers of beer and with the brewers themselves. The MBG festivals i’ve been to in the past have been well worth the price, and fantastically enjoyable each time, so i am wiling to pay to help cover the expenses of renting the ballpark, providing amenities, and paying for advertising so this event can happen. I recommend everyone try to make it to the festival, even if the price may seem restrictive ahead of time. I do not think that anyone will be disappointed afterwards.
