Our recent trip to the Royal Oak Beer Fest got me thinking about my favorite event of the year, the World Expo Of Beer. It’s a two day event at Heritage Park in Frankenmuth, MI that is half beer fest and half full blown party. With 300 beers to try it is a must attend event. This year the expo will be held on Friday, May 15th and Saturday, May 16th.
We have made the trip two years in a row and are anxiously looking forward to this year’s event. We have always done the expo on Saturday, but may switch it up a little this year and do Friday night instead. Hopefully that will let us do more around Frankenmuth and give us more time to enjoy the amenities of the hotel. Speaking of the hotel, The Bavarian Inn is a very short walk, or stumble, from Heritage Park and has all sorts of entertainment for the whole family. The highlight though is the two indoor water slides. Not too much farther away is Zenders Splash Village Hotel. They also have an indoor water park and that may be calling our names this year.
It looks like tickets are on sale already. I recommend buying ahead of time to save yourself a lot of time on the day of the expo. Having tickets still puts you in a long line because of the popularity of the event, but it moves much quicker than the line for purchasing tickets at the expo.
Even though there won’t be a Mighty Penguin Brewing booth I still hope to see you there!
