About the Michigan Cask Ale Festival

Saturday, May 14, 2016, 2-5 p.m., Ashley's Beer & Grill, Westland
We created the Michigan Cask Ale Festival a number of years ago to showcase a third kind of beer beyond conventional draft and bottle: cask ale, also known as real ale. This event requires months of planning and working through our strong relationships with brewers and distributors. We travel throughout the state to personally deliver our own casks to breweries for them to fill with unique, fresh beer and then put it all together the second Saturday in May at this, the largest festival of its kind anywhere in Michigan. It’s a lot of work, but we think when you taste these beers you’ll agree with us that it’s worth it.

Festival ticket includes admission, program and tasting notes, and 12 drink tokens (more can be purchased separately on site).

Designated driver (DD) tickets are just $5. We advocate drinking responsibly so DDs will get a different wristband so they can enjoy the food, music, and non-alcoholic beverages.
