Building on the successes of other cities beer weeks, organizers are planning events to include a bar themed bike ride, retail store beer tasting, tap takeover barevents, beer and food pairing, bar crawl, beer tasting boat cruise and a brewery bus tour. All of these events will feature Michigan made beers.
