• Portland MI Downtown Fall
  • Mid-Michigan's Favorite BeerFest Returns

    Recently voted “Best Local Event” by local beer aficionados, Portland Downtown Executive Director Tina ConnerWellman is excited to be part of #BeerOnBridge.

    "I get to work with great promoters and outstanding volunteers. It’s exciting to see the community come together to welcome visitors from everywhere, all enjoying each other’s company in a fun and inviting environment.   I see why it was voted ‘Best Local Event.’ Cheers to great tastes!” said ConnerWellman.

    It’s about the people and, of course, the craft beer, wine, cider, soda and, for the first time, spirits - all provided by fermented and distilled artisans including American Fifth Spirits, Arbor Brewing Company, Bell’s Brewery, BrickHaven Brewery, ConfluxCity Brewing Company, Cranker’s Brewery, EagleMonk Pub and Brewery, Ellison Brewery, Dark Horse Brewery, Grand Armory Brewing, Lansing Brewing Company, Looking Glass Brewing Company, Leelanau Cellars, Ridge Cider Company, The Sanctuary, Saugatuck Brewing Company, Schmohz Brewery, and Tabor Hill Winery.

    Also featured each year is a new flavor brewed just for this event ~ Portland Strong signature beer.   

    Unique eats are provided by a variety of food trucks and caterers.  Live music always completes the ambiance.  However, it’s about more than the drinks, food and music, according to festival promoter Eric Proctor.

    “The boardwalk, bridge, and park surrounding the river are what separates this festival from other beer festivals out there. At the end of the day, a beer festival is a beer festival. However, Beerfest on the Bridge has one of the most vibrant atmospheres,” said Proctor.

    Portland City Manager Tutt Gorman agrees.

    “Beerfest on the Bridge has become a hallmark event that showcases our historic downtown and local landmarks — the Veterans Memorial Bridge and the boardwalk overlooking the Grand River,” says Gorman. “We are extremely proud of our community and what it has to offer and look forward to showing it off.”

    This festival is held on the historic metal truss bridge that has been in continuous use since 1890. The bridge offers a historic and exciting entrance into downtown Portland.
