 Michigan Princess Riverboat TH

On Friday, November 24th from 6pm to 11pm is the Black Friday Brew Cruise on Michigan Princess Riverboat.

This Black Friday Brew Cruise will feature beer over 40 fall and winter seasonal beers and ciders. We picked the best seasonal beers from Michigan, out-of-state and imported to get a well rounded list.

What pairs with great beer? Of course, a jamming DJ playing the old classics along with the best hits of today. 

Tickets are $20 which includes light appetizers and the boat cruise.

You can buy most of the beers/ciders on the list for $4 for a 12oz beer/cider or $5 for a 16oz beer/cider. If you want to sample it will be 4 - 4oz sample tokens for $5. The sampler gives you a chance to try several beers/ciders before committing to a full one.

Event Times:

  • Event opens at 6pm
  • Boat leaves at 7pm
  • Boat docks at 10pm
  • Event ends at 11pm
