ABOUT THE EVENT:
We are celebrating YOU, our members, on October 12th at our 5th Anniversary Party! We are excited to celebrate our 5th year as an organization committed to diversity, camaraderie, networking, and education within the craft beverage industry.
This year we're throwing a picnic complete with a taco bar, delicious Michigan-made beverages, Board Elections, live music featuring Syd Burnham, a "brown bag raffle," a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle. All proceeds fund our scholarships and continuing education opportunities we provide throughout the year.
Speakers this year will include several members who've received scholarships. We've got a low-key, fun afternoon planned at the Fitzgerald Park so everyone can get to know more awesome people in our Michigan fermented food and beverage industry.
