Saturday, November 29th in the Warehouse District


Traverse City’s only micro-brewery, Right Brain Brewery, will be tapping the kegs in honor of their one year anniversary. They will be pouring the sought after CEO stout, a fresh batch of Distill My Heart Bourbon Stout, and a yet to be named beer that has been aging in cherry port casks for 4 months. (Stop by the brewery to get in on the "Name Your Beer" contest) They will have new CEO gear, and will be dressing the "Big, Rich, and Powerful" part. 

At 6pm there will be food from Home Grown Eatery, and the bands begin to play. A different band will entertain you every hour, followed by a jam session around 10pm.


If you haven’t been to Right Brain Brewery in Traverse City’s warehouse district, then you’ve been missing out on the best beer in town. Help them celebrate their first year in business and raise a glass to Russell, John and all the gang. For a detailed map of their location check out our Attractions page.
