HOP RIOT 2018: Go Great Lakes Bay
Hop Riot 2018 - An event which is nothing but sampling beers and eating from food trucks. OBVIOUSLY we agreed to teaming up with Go Great Lakes Bay to do an Instagram takeover, featuring this fun event and bringing more attention to the fact that the Great Lakes Bay region is full of fun things to do no matter the season. If you need a go-to resource that will help you find out all of things going on in the Bay City, Birch Run, Chesaning, Frankenmuth, Midland, and Saginaw areas, Go Great Lakes Bay is it!
Our job was simple. Go to the event. Post about it on Instagram. Drink (lots) of beer. DEFINITELY eat some food, and find a safe way to get home. We grabbed the task by the reins and had an absolute blast! The added bonus??? Being able to connect with local breweries from all over Michigan. As avid travelers of our great Mitten State, we love connecting with local companies and hearing their story. It wasn't just Michigan breweries representing their craft, we also met some really cool guys out of Montana, and I can confirm their beer is just as delicious as ours here. #MidwestIsBest!
Probably the number one question I will get is, "What was your favorite beers?!" I wish I could choose just one, but if I'm being realistic, I tried many and couldn't even remotely remember who made what. As WMU graduates, we have an allegiance to Bells Brewery, but I'm also a sucker for anything doggy related, so Brewdog had me at hello with their cute mascot!
