With 89 craft beer breweries participating in this year’s Michigan Brewers Guild Winter Beer Festival, this February 22nd event shows just how hot the Michigan craft beer scene is right now.
One thing that won’t be hot, however, is the temperature. The Winter Beer Festival is held outdoors so the key to enjoying a cold beer is to dress warm!
