Token Policy:

The Michigan Brewers Guild utilizes drink tokens and specially marked cups to assure that we comply with Michigan Liquor Control Commission regulations. Festival attendees are expected to willingly provide a token for each and every sample of beer received. We appreciate your cooperation.

15 drink tokens are included with admission and each drink token is redeemable for a 3 oz. sample of beer (note: a limited number of specialty beers may require multiple tokens). Additional tokens will be available inside the festival for 50 cents.
