Traverse City Microbrewery and Music Festival

Mark your calendars and get ready for the Cherry Capitol of the World to become the Cheery Capitol of the World on August 29, 2009. Sam Porterhouse is organizing the Traverse City Microbrewery and Music Festival (what an appropriate name for a guy organizing a beer festival).

TraverseCityMicroFest

I’m looking forward to hearing some tunes from Buckwheat Zydeco and drinking some beers from Short’s Brewing. I’m slated to give a rap about brewing and sustainabilityg during the Brewers Happy Hour from 3-5pm and might even be doing some MCing in between bands. What fun!

Sam says the Festival is designed to honor local and regional brewers by being the first in the state to not charge a tap fee, pay the breweries 100% for their beer and offer to support the brewers with rooms and hospitality.

The event benefits several local non-profits, including The Good Work Collective, a youth empowerment and community networking organization; Little Artshram, which fosters alternative education through a combination of permaculture, art, environmentalism, and social activism; The Historic Barns Harvest Festival slated for October 3, 2009; WNMC 90.7, Traverse City’s local college radio; local farmers and others.

The Good Work Collective will help with sustainability at the festival by implementing recycling and using compostable serving ware and wind- and solar-power stages for the event.

  6. Hello, just wanted to mention, I enjoyed this blog post.
    It was funny. Keep on posting!

  7. naturally like your web-site but you have to test the spelling on several of
    your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very troublesome to inform the truth then
    again I’ll definitely come back again.

    There are recycling container items like plastic soda bottles, empty metal food cans and boxes, soda cans,
    cereal boxes, empty pizza delivery boxes, aluminum food containers and all types of paper products.
    The great thing about these bean bags is the fact that
    they can help you continue recycling this material due
    to the fact that in time the beans get compressed and you need to add new ones.

    In recent times, e-waste recycling is the growing issue.

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted
    and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.

    Do you have any points for newbie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

    constantly i used to read smaller posts that
    as well clear their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I
    am reading now.

    Commendable Service Offerings: Select such a company who would be able to
    offer quality and wide variety of services.

    The great thing about these bean bags is the fact that they can help you continue recycling this material due to the fact that in time the beans get compressed
    and you need to add new ones. In the past five years, We have strengthened its role as an expert in wastewater treatment, and is now the market leader in microwave technology measurements
    used in treatment processes.
