I've mentioned this event before, but it deserves its own special shout-out. Unfortunately participation is a bit contingent upon either working or living in the city and being able to be home, on your bike, and able to meet at the Detroit Beer Co. at 5:30pm sharp...that counts me out, but that doesn't mean you can't try to recreate this bike tour through Detroit's beer history on your own and try to wobble your way along the same path! Bil has done a great job putting together a tour package where participants not only see historical sites relevant to Detroit's brewing history, but also get to enjoy some of the best beer the city has to offer. Huzzah!
Our resident Detroit cycling beer enthusiast, Bil Lusa, will take you on a tour of the D's historical & current breweries. Explore Traffic Jam, Motor City Brewing, the historical brewery buildings of Eastern Market, Atwater and more...
Gather @ Detroit Beer Co for happy hour, enjoy a pint and prepare for a prompt 5:30pm departure. We will end the tour @ Grand Trunk where you can enjoy New Holland Brewing's event and/or the Beer ...vs Wine Cheese Pairing upstairs @ Motor City Wine.
BIKE RENTAL IS AVAILABLE - PLEASE CONTACT BIL LUSA VIA EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org -- if you need to rent a bike, we need to know by Tuesday the 19th.
PLEASE NOTE - WE WILL DEPART FROM DBC @ 5:30PM SHARP!
