TRAVERSE CITY: Timber Ridge RV and Recreation Resort and Create TC announce the 9th Annual Suds & Snow on Saturday, March 7, 2015. Suds & Snow is where snowshoes meet microbrews, the ultimate party in the woods. The annual event will be held at Timber Ridge Resort on the back wooded trails. Tickets are on sale now at sudsandsnowtc.com.
Troy Daily, Director of Suds & Snow, is excited about the annual event, “My team and I recently took over full operations of the event which has received a ton of community support and a great following in the past; people really love it. We want to build on that and make this the highlight microbrew event of the winter.”
Suds & Snow will take place on Saturday, March 7th. Doors will open at 1:30 pm with live music starting shortly afterward. There will be two stages this year, with alternating sets, sponsored by Drink My Brewcast. Lucas Paul Band will be performing for the first time at Suds & Snow this year. Lucas Paul Band members are Lucas Paul (lead vocals & guitar), Pete Birchler (Lead Guitar, Vocals), Matt Henninger (Bass Guitar), Mike Shea (Drums), and Bobby Streng (Saxophone). All of these extremely talented musicians move the crowd with their originals songs and catalog of cover songs that every generation enjoys.
Suds & Snow wouldn’t be complete without “Nick and J” who have performed at the event for the past five years. They have performed from Chicago to Mackinac Island for over 15 years. Consisting of members who also perform in “Old Friend” a Simon and Garfunkel tribute band, Nick and J have headlined at Cherry Festival, Cherry Ball Drop, Venetian Fesival, and The Coast Guard Festival. Get ready to move your snow shoes! We are extremely happy that “Nick and J” will be returning to Suds & Snow.
Over 12 breweries will be present at the event including The Filling Station Microbrewery, Right Brain Brewery, Bravo Zulu Brewing, Jolly Pumpkin, North Peak Brewing, Beggar’s Brewery, Brewery Ferment, Brewery Vivant, Bell’s Brewery, Short’s Brewing, Founder’s Brewing Company, Blackrocks Brewery, Stormcloud Brewing Company, Schmoz and more. For those non-beer drinkers, the event will also feature Tandem Ciders and wine from Bowers Harbor Vineyards.
Attendees will check in at Timber Ridge banquet hall, then enjoy a half-mile hike to the backwoods where the event will take place.
