Five Reasons to Attend Art & Brew


Art and Brew is the Art Center’s annual food and beer tasting event where patrons go on a bar crawl around some of the top bars and restaurants in downtown Ann Arbor in search for the best brew & bite pairing.

And here are 5 reasons why you should attend:

1) Surprising beer and food pairings

The restaurants are pulling out all the stops to pair some delicious bites with our favorite beers in really fun ways. Ever had a maple stout with your breakfast? No? Art & Brew is your chance to see how a brew can enhance the food you eat with it!


2) Jam-packed with art experiences
