Weko Brew Fest Scares Up Some Fun

Occasionally you will find dads accompanying trick-or-treaters jokingly taking along a shot glass to trick-or-treat for themselves in their neighborhoods. If that fantasy is one you'd kinda, sorta like to live out, then my friends at the 7th Annual Weko Beach Brew Festival on Saturday, October 29th cordially invite you to join them on the shores of Lake Michigan for exactly that sort of fun. You can even wear a costume if you'd like. 

This year's version of the Weko Beach Brew Fest is themed as Brews for Boos, and your $25 ticket can be purchased online at the link below, or at either the Bridgman Hardings or any of the participating breweries if you do so by October 28th. The other option is to pay at the door, but that cost escalates to $35. Ticket price includes 15 tasting tickets which you may use to sample from more than 80 hand-crafted beers from 23 of Michigan's finest breweries right there at Weko Beach in Bridgman.
