A local brewery is teaming up with its neighbor down the road to throw a pre-Michigan Winter Beer Festival event tonight.
Speciation Artisan Ales is partnering with Basalt restaurant to host the “Pre Winter Beer Fest Taco Get Down!” from 6-9 p.m. today, Friday, Feb. 25, at Speciation’s location at 928 Wealthy St. SE in Grand Rapids.
The event will include beverage pours from Speciation paired with a menu by Basalt.
“We are super excited to party the night before WBF with all the beer fans that will be in town,” the brewery said, noting it will not be a vendor at the Winter Beer Fest this year but it still wanted to find a way to connect with attendees.
