Winter Microbrew and Music Festival – February 10, 2018

The 9th Annual Winter Microbrew & Music Festival has relocated to Historic Mount Mancelona where you are invited to celebrate in a New Michigan Nature & Backcountry Festival Setting and Unique Weekend of Activities

February 10, 2018
2 PM – 8 PM

This year’s festivities will take place on February 10, 2018, at Mount Mancelona, a historic ski hill, and lodge that sits just over a mile north of Mancelona, Michigan. This festival will offer unique activities from snowshoeing to the top for a rare tasting brewer tent to professional snowboard and ski aerial viewing while guests warm up around the giant bonfires and heated tents. There will be fewer tickets and a more intimate atmosphere but will again feature the great music and tasty brews you’ve come to expect from this award-winning music and food festival.

We invite brew gurus, lovers of craft beer, wine, cider, and mead, and music fans to pull on your liquid long-johns and join us under heated tents and beside roaring bonfires. The Microbrew & Music Festival will feature beer, wine, cider, and mead from craft breweries from around the state (and beyond!), acclaimed live musical acts including festival favorite Mustard Plug, The Ragbirds, Tom Zipp & The Bullpen Country Band, Slow Tako, Olivia Mainville & The Aquatic Troupe, Luke “Blue” Woltanski & His Worn-Out Soles, and many more plus local food vendors featuring Pigs Eatin’ Ribs, Man & Pan Paella, Happy Tacos, Cheese & Company, and local grub, 1000 headset Silent Disco multi-stage DJ tent with 80’s-90’s Throwbacks and new Big Country Top Hits with DJ Susan Melton, DJ Dominate, Michigan DJs, Ski Juggler Tommy Tropic, Hula Hoopers, Fire Twirlers, Vintage Snowmobiles, Historic Trucker Snow Cat Shuttles, Snowshoe Rare Beer Trail, and more to be announced! Early bird doors will open at 2 PM and GA doors will open at 3 PM. The event will end at 8PM.

New this year is our launch of Super Fan Bus where people can “Get On The Bus” throughout Michigan in craft beer lovin’ communities and experience buses presented by their favorite breweries, brewers, and bands in the top of line new 56 passenger Blue Lakes buses. Buses may include brewery films and in-depth education on the rare beers they will try on the bus and build new friendships with common Super Fans. It is BYOB on buses but we will stop after pickup at a local retailer where sourced beers will be available for all to buy and get back on the bus. Some buses will have live music in the aisles and a Silent Disco wireless dance party on the way home with classic sing-along keep the party rocking silently vibe. Look for shuttles from surrounding cities including Detroit, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Traverse City, Petoskey and down, Grayling and Gaylord. Shuttles are free from Mancelona locations one mile away. Contact us for a private tour bus options if you have a medium to big group or with questions. All Super Fans also get a safe guaranteed ride to and from the event including the 2 PM Early Bird/VIP Entry and shuttle to the Mountain door with our 1962 Tucker Snow Cat driven transport at the Mountain which is a short winter walk.
