Michigan: Tickets on sale for Grand Rapid’s Winter Beer Festival


If the idea of drinking cold beer outdoors in the middle of winter in Michigan appeals to you, drop this newspaper and log on to mibeer.com now. Enjoying beer and winter at the same time is the theory behind Michigan’s annual Winter Beer Festival, held in a minor league baseball stadium parking lot outside Grand Rapids. Tickets for the Feb. 22 event go on sale at 10 a.m. today (our time). No one in his or her right mind would stand outside for six hours drinking beer in a snowstorm. So of course, tickets for last year’s event sold out within 24 hours.
