Michigan City Mainstreet Association hosted its 4th annual Shelf Ice Brewfest in the Uptown Arts District. The fest featured forty-one breweries from around the region, ensuring event participants would discover new unique drafts. Gates were opened at noon to four large tents arranged with ten breweries in each tent, making it easy for attendees to maneuver towards a wide selection of brews.

Many attendees gathered in the center of the event between samples to warm up near the fire pits and talk about their favorite ales while watching the Michiana Ice Carver Association make ice sculptures.

Each brewery featured at least 3 drafts, with no style of beer left out in the cold. Flavor choices ranged from spicy to sweet and everything in-between. The fest also featured several local food choices to soak up the suds and live music to sway to.

Michigan City Mainstreet Association states in their Brewfest publication: “All of the proceeds from this event go back into the downtown to help fund other events, improvements, and initiatives.” It is a non-profit organization “focused on rejuvenating downtown Michigan City.” For more information about the breweries and food vendors, visit their links below.
