Paul Starr / I'm A Beer Hound

The 8th Annual Art and Craft Beer Festival kicks off on Saturday, February 1st, 2020 at noon over at the Cadillac Room (Inside Riverview Church) in REO Town and from there you can "choose your own adventure" with four other venues along the main strip.

This is an all-ages event, and not only do kids get in for free but from noon to 5 PM, they can also enjoy activities like donut decorating, cartoon decorating, slime-making demos and more.

After 5 PM, the event becomes "adults only" where, of course, one of the main focuses is the beer!

This year the beer is brought to the festival CANarchy which features breweries like Cigar City Brewing, Oskar Blues Brewery & Perrin Brewing Co. but also cider from Virtue Cider for the non-beer drinkers.

Don't think adults are left out of the fun activities though. Throughout the day anyone can check out the wide array art demos, comedy, live music, short films, and vendors the festival will have sprawled across the four venues, just a short walk from one to the next.

This event is a great way for Lansing area beer, art, and just fun-lovers alike to get together for a drink (or however many tasting tickets you get your hands on), and it benefits the REO Town Commercial Association.
