Top off your summer with a cold brew and good tunes at Traverse City’s Summer Microbrew & Music Festival taking place the weekend of August 11. Since the summer of 2009, the microbrew festival has celebrated the best of Northern Michigan’s food and beer scene and local musicians, drawing thousands of brew and music devotees to Traverse City.

Zoso, the Ultimate Led Zepplin Experience will headline Friday, August 11 and Moon Taxi is headlining on Saturday, August 12. Northern Michigan’s brotha James, The Accidentals, and May Erlewine will also perform. Festival favorites such as That 1 Guy, Heatbox, Deep Blue Water Samba, and more to be announced will also grace the stage over the weekend.
