I'm so excited that certain events are returning this summer. Besides concerts, the main thing I miss is all of the beer and art festivals. They're always a great time spent with good people.

If you're trying to live your best life this summer and hit up a couple different beer festivals, you've come to the right place.

Here's a list of some of the beer festivals surrounding the Lansing area.

All events are ages 21 & up.
