Join us for this year’s A2 Art & Brew, a fundraiser benefiting the Ann Arbor Art Center! This year each participating venue will feature three different pairings (beer tasting and one-bite snack); try all three at a few locations or try one at each location. From 5:30pm to 9:00pm, guests will visit participating establishments and taste these well-crafted pairings to see how different beers and food work together.
Guests will have the chance to view virtual art in the restaurants through an app.
From 7:00pm to 2:00am, September's Straight Up (at Alley Bar) will be a special PBRART edition featuring art inspired by Pabst Blue Ribbon from local artists.
A2 Art & Brew guests have the opportunity to choose the Best Pairing during the event and the winner will be announced following the event!
Participating venues include:
- The Beer Grotto
- Conor O'Neill's
- Isalita Cantina
- Mani Osteria
- Old German
- Pretzel Bell
Attendees must be 21 or older by 9/28/2017.
