15th Annual Winter Beer Festival

View Map

The 2019 Winter Beer Festival featured almost 150 Michigan breweries and brewpubs and over 1,100 beers. For all of our festivals, each guest ticket comes with 15 tasting tokens which guests can exchange for 3 oz. samples from over 1000 different craft beers (note that some specialty beers will require 2 or more tokens per 3 oz. sample). Guests also enjoy fine music from local bands, other entertainment, ice sculpture demonstrations, and fire pits to warm up by. A selection of tasty food is available for purchase at the festival.

Early Admission:

Michigan Brewers Guild Enthusiast members are invited to enter the festival one hour early (@ noon on Saturday). You must present a valid membership card to enter early. Memberships can be purchased online from our web store.


We look forward to next year's Winter Beer Festival, which will take place on Saturday, February 22, 2020. Tickets will go on sale in early December (dates TBA), and more information will be posted as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, read about last year's event below to get an idea of what the event is like. Cheers!

Festival Location: Fifth Third Ballpark, Comstock Park - just north of Grand Rapids:
