The 2016 Art & Craft BeerFest will be held on Friday, January 29th from 6pm to 10pm (5pm for VIP) and Saturday, January 30th from 5pm to 10pm (4pm for VIP). The Festival will be kicked off with a ceremonial firkin tapping on January 30th at 6pm.
Art & Craft BeerFest is an indoor art, beer and music festival where you can go back and forth between four venues. All venues are located on the same block, just a short walk from one another.
This year we are transitioning from three venues to four to be able to incorporate more art, more beer, and more music. The four venues that will host Art & Craft BeerFest are The Cadillac Room (Inside Riverview Church), Robin Theatre, AA Creative Corridor & REO Town Pub which all are located on same block in REO Town, Lansing.
The beauty of this event is that when you purchase one ticket, it gives you access to all four venues. Each venue will have different art, bands, beer, wine and cider. The art will range from photography to metal sculptures to paintings. New this year, there will be live ice sculpting on Friday from 5pm to 7pm. On top of a great variety of art, there will also be a wide range of music such as country, classic rock, R&B and more.
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. To please all of the non beer drinkers, there will be Blake's Hard Cider with their 4 mainstay ciders plus 10 seasonal and rare selections. This year will also feature a variety of Michigan wines.
With any festival good food is a must, we have some great food vendors for you. Good Truckin' Diner, Saddleback BBQ, Michigan Donut Company & Detroit Frankie's Wood Fired Brick Oven will all be featuring their tastiest dishes. There will be options for meat eaters and non-meat eaters alike.
With a purchase of a ticket, gets you access to: Cadillac Room (Inside Riverview Church), AA Creative Corridor, Robib Theatre & REO Town Pub. All are located on the same block in REO Town and each venue will have different Art, Beer & Music. You can go back and forth to venues but your glass must be empty before going to the next venue.
