The comeback of Detroit continues this fall as Tashmoo Biergarten
presents three weekends of events in October. Tashmoo is a pop-up European-style outdoor beer garden that utilizes vacant space in the West Village neighborhood of Detroit, located at 1420 Van Dyke. Featuring Michigan craft beer and lots of local food, Tashmoo Biergarten hopes to foster a sense of community and contribute to the rebirth of the Detroit culture.
The name Tashmoo comes from an American Indian word meaning “meeting place.” It’s an apt name, as the atmosphere at their events is family friendly, featuring communal tables and benches made from recycled materials. Tashmoo’s commitment to Detroit is highlighted by its partnering with Habitat for Humanity, who is coordinating and staffing the volunteers for the opening weekend. Part of the proceeds from Tashmoo will be donated to Habitat for Humanity. Tashmoo is also proud to support several other organizations in the West Village area and strives to raise awareness for the historical neighborhood. And it seems to be fulfilling its mission: since its debut in 2011, Tashmoo Biergarten has drawn over seven thousand people to West Village.
Events will be held from noon till 9 pm on the following weekends: October 13-14, 20-21, and 27-28. The October 20 event will be held at Atwater Brewery for Blocktoberfest, to celebrate Atwater’s 15th anniversary. This event will also serve as the official launch party of the 4th Annual Detroit Beer Week.
