September is just a day away and with it comes the beginning of the fall season. We know the drill. The weather will start to cool down, leaves will start to change from a luscious green to a more fall-like yellow, red and brown, the kids will head back to school and football season kicks into full gear. But, with all these changes, one thing remains the same, your Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers are still keeping you informed on what’s happening in the D — more specifically, where and when the hottest food & drink events are happening.
On Sunday, September 11, One Under Craft Beer & Eats in Livonia is hosting “Brew B Que.” 37 specialty craft beers will be on tap from the likes of Bell’s, Dark Horse, Founders, Dragonmead, Atwater, Greenbush, Kuhnhenn, Saugatuck, Shorts, New Holland and many more. Did we mention there will be homemade BBQ to go with all those craft beers?
The 8th Annual Brewed in Michigan beer and wine tasting event is Friday, September 16 from 7 till 10 p.m. Those with advance purchase VIP tickets will be able to get in an hour early at 6 p.m. to start tasting ahead of the crowd. Tickets cost $30 before August 31, $40 after August 31 and $45 the day of the event. Attendees will receive a souvenir mini tasting mug, 12 pours from on-site Michigan brewers, six food tasting tickets from local restaurants and one door prize raffle ticket. The outdoor beer tent will host live entertainment from Power Play Detroit.
Whether you’re walking and rolling, Sip. Stroll. Roll. is perfect for beer and wine drinkers that want to get a taste of the city of Ferndale while they get a taste of local food and drinks around town. This event is happening Thursday, September 22 from 5:30 till 8:30 p.m. Tickets cost $15 and participating businesses include Assaggi Bistro, B. Nektar Meadery, Cork Wine Pub, Dino’s, The Emory, GreenSpace Cafe, Howe’s Bayou, M-Brew, Rosie O’Grady’s and more.
Atwater Brewery in Detroit is celebrating Oktoberfest the only way any respectable beer-drinker should: beer, games, friends and fun. The Saturday, September 24 event is free and open to the public. Beer and local food vendors will be on site and live music & games will also be present. Set aside the whole day because Bloktoberfest starts at 1:00 p.m and runs till 11:30 p.m.
