2nd Annual Weko Beach Brewers Festival

Are you ready to TOAST THE COAST?  It’s no secret that Michigan is home to great breweries and picturesque beaches.  Combining the best of both worlds, the Bridgman Area Economic Growth Alliance invites you to a relaxing fall day on a pristine beach to savor award-winning Michigan craft beers that are as spectacular as its harvest sunsets.  Live music will enhance the scene as you raise your beer mug and ‘toast the coast’ on Saturday, October 1st from 3 pm to 9 pm, under a Big-Top Tent overlooking beautiful Weko Beach in Bridgman, just over an hour outside outside Chicago!   

The Weko Beach Brewers Festival is a showcase event to sample (tastes or by the mug) over 30 wonderful locally-produced craft beers from Southwest Michigan.  Wrap this into a day filled with sun and sand, tasty cuisine from local restaurants, live music, a dazzling sunset and you have one fantastic fall festival! 

Michigan’s craft brewery scene is booming!  Contrary to the state’s high unemployment rate, breweries, microbreweries and brew pubs from Southwest Michigan to Detroit to Bellaire and Bay City are adding jobs, increasing production and investing in expansions and renovations totaling more than $70 million (according to the Michigan Brewers Guild).  Many breweries are returning, and some new, for this year’s Brewer’s Fest, including: Arbor, Arcadia, Atwater, Bells, Founders, Greenbush, The Livery, New Holland, North Peak, Odd Side, Old Hat, Round Barn and Shorts. 

The all-day music at Brewer’s Fest is a crowd-pleaser for sure.  This year’s bands include: Mr. Blotto (7 pm), Top Secret Band (4:45 pm) and Alligator Blackbird (3 pm). 

Admission to the festival is $20 in advance or $25 at the door and includes a souvenir beer mug.  Advance tickets are available at *Ages 13-20 get in for $10 (no drink tickets included) while kids ages 12 and under are FREE.

Parking and shuttle buses will be available at designated nearby lots in Bridgman.  No coolers allowed.  Rain or shine event. 

**Weko Beach is located at Exit 16 off I-94, then north on Red Arrow Highway.  Look for parking signage along Red Arrow in Bridgman.  The event is only a short hour and 30 minute drive from Chicago or Grand Rapids, just an hour from South Bend or Kalamazoo and three hours from Detroit or Indianapolis.  Southwest Michigan is the perfect ‘day trip’ destination from many Midwest cities or extend your stay, make a family vacation out of it and check out at the many vacation rentals, hotels, inns and bed and breakfasts in the area.
