Crystal Mountain will once again usher in the summer season with the finest Michigan brews, specialty brats and timeless rock ‘n roll classics from the band Egon during the 3rd Annual Michigan Beer & Brat Festival, May 24 (4-8pm).


The Michigan Beer & Brat Festival has quickly become Crystal’s signature Memorial Day weekend event. This year the Michigan Brewers Guild will partner with Crystal for the festival featuring a variety of over 40 Michigan microbrews from Bell’s, Short’s, Right Brain Brewery, New Holland, Founder’s, Arbor, Arcadia, Old Hat and more. A variety of specialty brats from area markets and giant Bavarian pretzels should perfectly compliment the featured libations.



Admission to the Michigan Beer & Brat Festival (4-8pm) is $20 and includes a commemorative mug, entertainment as well as beer & brat tickets.


The band Egon will be the featured entertainment for this year’s festival putting their spin on timeless funk, rock, and R&B classics from the 60’s and 70’s. The five young musicians are making a name for themselves with routine performances in Traverse City.
