We consider Shelf Ice Brewfest a tribute to rugged Midwestern character. Whether icy cold or unseasonably warm, this sell-out beer festival draws game hopheads from across the region for a day of outdoor revelry and liquid fellowship. Representing for northern Indiana and southwest Michigan, over 40 brewers pour their best for a relaxed, happy crowd. Food, music, dancing and community art are all part of the fun.

Local Tip: Perhaps serendipitously for overenthusiastic beer fans, taps tend to run dry in the final hour of the fest, so make sure you visit your must-try brewers early. But don’t leave just because your glass is empty! This is the perfect time to get your groove on.
