Much like last year's festival, we’ll be featuring beers from only Right Brain Brewing Company in Traverse City. We'll have 20 beers from Right Brain Brewing Co. and have several rare beers such as Mangalitsa Pig Porter, Imperial CEO, North Shore Iron Works and many more. Don't worry if you don’t like beer.

This urban 1100 square foot space is perfect for a multitude of activities. Three years of investments into this space as Art Alley has left it the perfect place to showcase wall art and 3D art. It is often sought after as a unique venue space. This space also may be rented hourly as a photography/creative share studio space.
