How to raise a glass to November’s Beer Week in Traverse City and Frankfort

TRAVERSE CITY, MI – One of our favorite times of the year is just around the corner. No, not the holidays. It’s almost beer week in Traverse City and near Frankfurt.

Traverse City Tourism has just released all the details for this year’s Beer Week, which will take place from November 12th to 19th. It includes more than 20 different breweries, restaurants known for their great food and craft beer – and even a few of our favorite cider spots.

The event is really a self-guided tour. You go at your own pace, visiting those you already love – or maybe those you are curious about. You can visit Old Mission to Jolly Pumpkin and order a dark Bam Noire, or stay in town and visit Right Brain for a fall favorite like the Chubby Squirrel. Or maybe head towards Frankfurt’s expansive Lake Michigan beach, where you’ll stop by Stormcloud for a nightswimmer stout.

Download a mobile beer week pass that will help you track your stops – and show you all the incentives and specials at the various locations. Some breweries offer $ 1 worth of pints. Others offer 10% of your total bill or throw in a free growler when you’re ready to go.

If you visit five different places, you can earn a “My Hoppy Place” T-shirt. And if you stay at select hotels during Beer Week, you can join a beer-themed weekend in Traverse City that includes a $ 200 hotel voucher.

“Traverse City was voted one of the best small-town brewery scenes in the country by USA Today readers,” said Trevor Tkach, tourism president of Traverse City. “Beer Week gives brewers the opportunity to show their creativity and spend time with customers to explain the passion that goes into their craft brews.”
