Beer Festivals

recap dowtow ludington 2014

This year’s downtown Ludington Octoberfest Music & Craft Beer Festival featured an expanded 3-day lineup of food, beer, and music with additional family friendly options featured for the early crowd. Many of the favorite activities from last year’s festival were repeated again for this year’s festival including the downtown chili walk, MittCrit charity bike race, and of course the Bell’s Brewery sponsored beverage and music tent. This year’s expanded weekend also included an Octoberfest Kid’s Fun Run, pumpkin patch and harvest activities, and “Open Fire,” a new meat-centric event on Sunday in the beer tent.

Fall is the perfect time for pumpkin and harvest (fresh hopped) ales, and there are many different kinds for you to explore this weekend. Harvest ales are some of my very favorites, and many of them feature local Michigan Hops – for those of you interested in more exploration of Michigan Hops, I highly encourage you to pop over to the Michigan Hop Alliance tent, which is full of information and will be pouring multiple Michigan-hopped harvest ales for your enjoyment.

The weekend was cold and rainy but that couldn’t keep the legions of thirsty beer drinkers away from Brewery Vivant’s 4th Annual Wood Aged Beer fest. The brewery has continued to expand the festival to keep up with demand which has gone from overfilling the pub, to the beer garden, to last year the parking lot, to this year a whole stretch of Cherry St. and all this after only over the last few short years. Fortunately large tents awaited those who braved the weather to sample the 20+ specialty wood age release and sour Brewery Vivant specialty beers.
