One of Michigan's largest beer sampling events is held right here in Michigan's Little Bavaria, with anywhere from 200-400 beers on tap each year. Here's what you need to know before planning your visit.
The 26th Annual World Expo of Beer, presented by the Frankenmuth Jaycees, is upon us. And you can bet it'll be full to the rim with fun!
Keep reading to learn more about what to expect at this year's event.
World Expo of Beer 2023 will be held on Friday, May 19 from 5-10PM and Saturday, May 20 from 2-10PM. The event will take place in Heritage Park and the Harvey Kern Pavilion, 601 Weiss Street.
Tickets includes your admission into the event, a souvenir mug for sampling, six sampling tickets, and the knowledge that your sampling experience helps out dozens of charities and non-profit organizations financially. The ticket price is $35 per person at the door, or $30 per person pre-purchased online.
This event exists for the sole purpose of raising funds to infuse back into the local community. All proceeds from the event are donated back to local and state charitable efforts.
Over 60 breweries will be in attendance, and each one usually has an average of 4-6 beers on tap... so the answer is a lot!
Beer will be served out of one of our three "beer pods" which will each feature 10-15 breweries.
Yes, cash or card accepted. At the door, the cost is $35 and includes admission and mug. Beer tickets are purchased separately inside the event. Or, buy online for $30 and get 6 drink tickets included (they are 3 for $5). So either way, you're paying the same! If you'd like to pay with card, you can visit the ticket link (worldexpoofbeer.com/p/tickets) on your phone, purchase your tickets if there are some available, then walk up and have it scanned to get in.
Yes, of course! There will be several food trucks and other food vendors in attendance. Make sure to bring cash just in case as some may not take credit cards for payment.
There will also be awesome souvenirs for sale as well as great gifts for your friends and family! Some popular items that will be sold include the 2023 World Expo of Beer® short and long sleeved t-shirts that have the participating breweries listed on the back and much more! All proceeds are donated to charity!
