From noon until 5 p.m., the Brew-Ski Festival will offer 150 micro-brewery beers all at the base of the slopes at the Highlands. Adding to the fun will be the displays of the beers, set up on snow bars which will also serve to enclose the Brew-Ski area. Representatives from each of the breweries will be on hand to discuss the brews.
Some of the breweries that will take part in the festival include Arcadia Ales, Bell's Brewery, New Holland Brewing Co., Jolly Pumpkin and Shorts Brewing Co. With over 50 breweries on hand, you will have the chance to taste some of the best brews produced in the state and nation.

Adding to the day, there will be live music at the festival by the northern Michigan band The Remedee. Tickets for the 4-ounce beer samples and the food can be purchased at the event and cost only $1.50 each.
Once the Brew-Ski festival begins to wind down outside at 5 p.m., it will be time to head indoors to the Zoo Bar at Boyne Highlands where you will find liver entertainment and dancing to keep your blood flowing.
