Tickets On Sale for Rat Fest 2017
Rat Fest is back February 4 for its seventh incarnation at the Arbor Brewing Microbrewery in Ypsilanti. The popular annual event showcases beers brewed by area homebrewing clubs on Arbor's 10-gallon brewing system, dubbed the Rat Pad.
The event will take place from 1-5 p.m, and follow the same format as previous years, offering 28 different small-batch beers brewed by members of the Ann Arbor Brewers Guild, Pontiac Brewing Tribe, Sons of Liberty, and four other homebrewing clubs. Beers from past events have included such creative takes as Golden Graham Brown Ale, Orange Creamsicle Ale, Shebrew Rye Caraway Ale, Tangerine Coffee IPA, and Loaded Baked Potato Stout.
Tickets are $30 in advance ($35 at the door, if available) and can be purchased by calling the brewery at 734-480-2739 or picking them up in person. The cost includes unlimited beer samples, a commemorative glass, and hot dogs and other appetizers. You know what to do!
