Michigan brews go center stage

Love beer?

Then you'll adore A Taste of the D, a beer-tasting event scheduled for Friday, October 20, at the Detroit Historical Museum.

Put on by the Detroit Historical Society's Junior Benefit Committee, this year's Taste will feature brews from 10 awesome Michigan breweries - Bell's Brewery of Kalamazoo, King Brewing Company of Pontiac, Kuhnhenn Brewing Company of Warren and Motor City Brewing Works of Detroit, to name a few - as well as samples of area cuisine from Metro D hotspots like Twingo's, Hunter House, Zumba and more.

Don't like beer? No worries; Gala Rouge will be on hand with wine samples.

Other highlights at the event, which runs from 7 pm - midnight, include a silent auction, tarot and astrology readings, and music by DJ Scott Brandon.

Advance tickets for a Taste of the D are $15 for Detroit Historical Society members and $20 for all others and can be purchased here. Tickets will be available at the door for $25 each.

Sponsored in part by Greektown Casino - other event partners include GTS, Go & Do Michigan, After 5, Six Degrees, CreateDetroit and Detroit Synergy - A Taste of the D is open to individuals 21 and over.

All proceeds benefit the Detroit Historical Society, a non-profit organization founded in 1921 to preserve the history of the Detroit region. For more information, please click here or call 313.833.1980.
