The annual Cadillac Craft Beer Festival feels like an awesome party in your backyard with all your favorite friends. You’ll find some of the best Michigan beers, ciders, mead and spirits, alongside food and retail vendors, live music and plenty of yard games right in downtown Cadillac.

Every year (this is it’s 10th anniversary!), the festival features a few up-and-comers in the brewing industry in addition to long-time favorites. Arcadia Ales, Right Brain Brewery, Bee Well Meadery and Clam Lake Beer Company are just a few of the Michigan makes you’ll find at this year’s event. (Tip: Start practicing for the cornhole tournament.) The Northern Michigan event is September 28 from 2–10 p.m. at the Cadillac Commons.
