Ann Arbor Art Center Art & Brew Best Pairings

Beer & Bite Tasting Tour | 2018 Event Photos

Art & Brew is the Art Center’s annual fall fundraiser —a one-night beer and bite tasting tour across downtown Ann Arbor! Your favorite bars, restaurants, and breweries compete against each other to create the best food and beer pairing of the night.

Each participating venue will have two delicious craft beer and food pairings for you to try. Your Art & Brew ticket gets you ten (10!) tasting tickets … one ticket gets you a 3 oz. pour and a bite-sized taste.

Besides the tasting, you can vote for your favorite pairing and join in fun art-making activities along the route. Afterward, join us at Alley Bar for the official Art & Brew after-party—a special PBR edition of Straight Up featuring a DJ set and PBR specials.

Attendees must be 21 or older by 10/10/2019 to enjoy the fun.

Participating venues include:
