Now that November is upon us, many Michiganders are scrambling to find ways to celebrate our beautiful fall season before the first flakes begin to descend. If you’re anything like me, you’ve done the haunted corn mazes, pumpkin patch, and costume contests, but still feel like your celebration of fall in Michigan is incomplete. I need something inherently Michigan, something I support, and something fun. Wait no longer fellow mitten fiends, I found something we can all get behind and agree on: BEER!
Come celebrate the first annual Lansing Fall Fest on November 9, 2013 from 1-6 p.m. at the Red Salamander in Grand Ledge. Michigan is quickly moving up the ladder in the world of craft beer with more than 100 craft breweries in the state, 16 of which will be featured at the celebration. Lansing Fall Fest is an indoor beer, cider, and mead festival with live acoustic music. The festival will include over 30+ samples from local breweries such as Arcadia Ales, Bad Brewing, Eagle Monk Brewery, and Virtue Cider. Tickets range from $25-$30 dollars and include up to 15 sampling tickets as well as a sampling glass from the festival. There will also be local food trucks at the festival where you can sample some Michigan favorites from Bagger Dave’s and M.E.A.T.
