Now that the beer list has been released for this week’s MBG Summer Beerfest at Riverside Park in Ypsilanti, attendees everywhere can start to zero in on beers they are interested in trying. After a quick perusal of the list, I’ve come up with 10 I’m putting at the top of my priority list.

Enjoy a 2-3 hour boat cruise Friday, August 22nd aboard the Detroit Princess Riverboat where you will travel from the Hart Plaza past the Ambassador Bridge, just past Belle Isle, and back to the dock. Enjoy great views of both Windsor and Detroit from the river.

Monelli’s Italian Grill and Sports Bar is a family-own eatery in Wyoming, MI located near the intersection of 56th Ave and Byron Center in Southwest Grand Rapids. Each summer the restaurant throws a weekend-long summer bash with live music and an outdoor beer tent and every year the event gets bigger with this year’s event including a record of over 60 different beers on tap inside and outside the establishment. A friend and I agreed this year’s bash was a great excuse to check out Monelli’s and see what it was all about.

With temps in the upper 80s and humidity to match, Lansing’s REO Town attracted a record number of thirsty people to its Second Annual Lansing Beer Fest. While the official event ran 1 to 6 p.m., a line of 45 VIP ticketholders were grateful for the noon jumpstart on more than 30 vendors in attendance. Throughout the day, the audience would swell to 1,000, making me grateful my husband and I had worn matching garish Hawaiian shirts to be able to locate each other as we tried different sides of the five-block area. The shirts also turned strangers into friends.

July Craft Beer month
