Who makes the best stout in Northern Michigan? You decide. The TC Ale Trail, Create TC and The Little Fleet are happy to announce the 3rd Annual Traverse City Stout Challenge!

The Stout Challenge is a local competition between 12 Traverse City area breweries. Each brewery will produce their brew and 200 beer lovers will choose their favorite. All tastings will be blind. Ticket holders will know the description of the beer, ABV, and other facts, but the brewery will remain confidential. At 10 p.m. an awards ceremony will take place, and the winning brewery will take home a trophy and a whole lot of bragging rights.

“The Stout Challenge is a ton of fun and a great way to get the area breweries together during the typically slower winter months. The event has become very popular and I am excited to see what the breweries brew up for this one,” says Troy Daily, the event organizer.

The 12 Traverse City area breweries participating in the event include:

  • The Filling Station Microbrewery
  • The Workshop Brewing Company
  • Right Brain Brewery
  • Hop Lot Brewing Co.
  • Brewery Ferment
  • Brewery Terra Firma
  • North Peak Brewing Company
  • Old Mission Beer Co. @ Jolly Pumpkin
  • Earthen Ales
  • Short’s Brewing Company
  • Rare Bird Brewpub
  • Monkey Fist Brewing Co.

Unique to this event, like the IPA Challenge, there will be VIP tickets available for $60. This will guarantee you a seat, table service, snacks, and other amenities. Limited seats are available! General admission tickets are $35.

All tickets include 12 three-ounce tastings of each beer, two wild card tastings, and voting ballot.
