Draft magazine has named Traverse City one of Americas’ three “emerging beer towns” and the Travel Channel tapped TC as one of their Top Seven Beer Destinations. That was enough to prompt Imperial Beverage and Visit Traverse City to start Traverse City Beer Week. Running November 9-15, 2013, it’s a week-long celebration of beer and food that tries to bring you closer to some great beers and the brewers who craft them.

Events throughout the week at brewpubs, restaurants and retailers will feature local and regional breweries and are designed to raise your awareness and appreciation of craft beer.

eatdrinkTC has a number of features to help you enjoy Beer Week and a full Traverse City Beer Week calendar.

Beer Pairing Dinners

One of the highlights of TC Beer Week is the exciting array of beer & food pairing dinners that some of our restaurants and chefs have created. From Beer & BBQ at Poppycocks to a 5 course beer dinner pairing 5 beers from Brewery Vivant with the food of Cooks’ House chef Eric Patterson & Simon Joseph of Roaming Harvest – there’s some don’t miss dinners on tap!

We have a full round in the eatdrinkTC blog – even a breakfast at Towne Plaza! Just click here to explore and reserve soon before they sell out!
