The award-winning Northern Michigan event, Microbrew & Music Festival, is excited to announce their new location at Mount Mancelona. What else is new this year? A custom 2-ounce glass for unlimited samples, a silent disco tent with a 1,000-person capacity, and the option to camp on-site.

After 21 festivals, Microbrew & Music is doing things a little differently this year. By shifting away from the typical beer fest, it’s now a chance for people to connect with craft beer industry professionals and fellow beer lovers while enjoying the great outdoors at Mount Mancelona. The three-day event, August 24–26, welcomes breweries from across the state and country. You’ll enjoy 4+ music stages, marching bands, great food, craft beer, and many fun surprises. At Mount Mancelona you can go mountain biking, hiking, birding and swimming. Plus, there’s a disc golf course.

This intimate beer festival is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the work that goes into each brew. Stay tuned for the complete list of bands, brews and outdoor activities.
