Craft Beers, Music, Brats---Brew-Ski Festival

March 12, 2016

The seventh annual Brew-Ski festival at Boyne Highlands, Harbor Springs is a celebration of two special things: beer and skiing. With more than 250 craft beers available in the tasting tent, brats cooking on the grill, and the chair lifts carrying skiers up the slopes--this is a perfect March ski day.

Spring skiing is great fun and throw in some fabulous beer by craftspeople such as Arcadia Ales, Short's Brewing Company, New Holland Brewing Company, and Bell's Brewing, and Brew-Ski is the place to be. After the noon-5 pm tastings, the action moves inside to the Zoo Bar for music by the Aaron Vaughn Band.
