Flooding postpones GR Winter Beer Festival

Grand Rapids

COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (WOOD) — Mass flooding in West Michigan is pushing back a big beer festival that was scheduled for this weekend.

The Grand Rapids Winter Beer Festival at Fifth Third Ballpark has been pushed back to March 2-3 because the parking lot is expected to be underwater.

Over 9,000 tickets have been purchased for the festival, including a sellout for Saturday with over 6,000 sold. But after rescheduling the event, tickets are available online for both Friday and Saturday.

All tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. The Grand Rapids Beer Guild expects most of the 142 breweries to participate in the rescheduled dates and have the event run the same as planned.

For those unable to attend the rescheduled festival can get a refund by emailing organizers before 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, February.

Brewery Vivant is still holding its Brewer’s Big Breakfast starting at 8 a.m. Sunday and will have special beers this weekend.
