Summer Craft Beer Festival – John Ball Park – July 19th, 2014 2:00-7:00pm
Sample over 100 beers from a variety of the country’s best craft breweries. In addition to the incredible selection of beer, there will be live music, various vendors and mouth watering food available for purchase. This event is held outdoors in the picnic area of John Ball Zoo with parking adjacent or on the side streets. No pets are allowed and obviously it is a 21 and up event. This is the fourth annual Summer Craft Beer Fest sponsored by the local Grand Rapids radio stations (97.9 WGRD, Channel 95.7, 98.7 WFGR, 100.5 The River and 1410 AM The Touch) so it should be well run and organized. While the majority of craft brewers at the festival will be from Michigan there will be some from: Alaska, California, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, Montana, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Vermont and Washington. Some of the music acts that will be playing include: Tyler Howe, The Campanellis, Upstage Crew.
