Every February, craft beer lovers bundle up and head to LMCU Ballpark in Comstock Park for the Michigan Brewers Guild's Winter Beer Festival.

This year will be the 17th Annual Winter Beer Festival. It is scheduled for Saturday, February 25th, 2023 from 1-6 pm.

The event features hundreds of beers from Michigan's best breweries. There is always more than just beer. The festival also includes live music, ice sculptures and carving demonstrations, food for purchase, and fire pits to gather around to warm up.

Tickets went on sale to the general public on December 1st and are still available. Tickets are $60 in advance, or $70 day of the event (if there are any tickets remaining). Your ticket includes admission and 15 beer tasting tokens. Tickets are non-refundable. The festival occurs regardless of the normal winter weather conditions. Attendees in the past have experienced everything from spring like weather to full blown blizzards! Dress accordingly.

Don't forget to make your snack necklace to wear to the festival that includes pretzels, cheese, and any other snack you can put on a string! You are also allowed to bring in folding/camping chairs.
