Traverse City Beer Week
October 27, 2023 – 12:11 am | Comments Off on Traverse City Beer Week

Beer Week, Traverse City, MichiganA beer passport will lead Road Trips Foodies on a self-guided brewery — and cidery — tour in and around Traverse City, Michigan. Bonus: The free passport makes discounts and prizes available for Traverse City Beer Week, November 10 through 17, 2023.

“Once again Traverse City has been hailed as a top-ten small town beer scene by readers of USA Today,” said Trevor Tkach, President of Traverse City Tourism. “They called this a ‘hotbed of craft beer.’ The creativity our brewers pour into their creations are worthy of the recognition. Beer Week gives everyone a chance to taste the craftmanship and pride that goes into those brews.”

The mobile passport is available now online. Those who check into five participating breweries earn a Traverse City Beer Week t-shirt – available for pick up at the Traverse City Tourism Visitor Center.

Beer Week participants are encouraged to drink responsibility, of course, and take full advantage of designated drivers, taxis, Bay Area Transportation Authority (BATA), bike trails, and drive services.

A full list of participating breweries is available online. Some breweries will offer discounts on beer flights and pints.
