With over 300 beers, ciders, meads, and wines, the weekend will be overflowing with flavorful beverages, delicious food, over 100 musicians, and thousands of craft brew and music lovers. Patrons will be able to explore every corner of the craft brew culture via a Rare Brew Tour, Homebrewer’s Challenge, and more!

Check with Charlevoix for next year maybe. They are always doing things in the park downtown and there are many eateries within walking distance along with places for libations. Also about 6 hotels nearby.

Why in the middle of nowhere

We are happy to see the event elsewhere. We quit going because of it's location. No where to park, to congested and in a parking lot. The good atmosphere was not there. Many beer festivals are held at lodges. Crystal holds one Boyne holds one, Comstock Park, the list goes on. This is going to be great!! We love TC but it has just gotten to busy there. Its nice to get away. Its all about the vendors, the hospitality and the great job Sam does. If you don't go, more Rubeaus for us!!!!!:-) Cheers!

Mt Mancelona did an awesome job with their very first event last month, Billy Strings and Company, and I can't hardly wait to see the amazing turnout of people for this event. Microbrew & Music Festival is going to be a wonderful thing for the Mancelona area and definitely put Mt. Mancelona back on the map!!!!!!!
