DETROIT BOAT CLUB / BELLE ISLE BOAT HOUSE BEER FEST
Belle Isle Boat Club — Belle Isle
SESSION 1 — 3pm to 6pm (2pm VIP)
CALLING ALL BEER LOVERS!
Sample 60+ Craft Beers! Enjoy a fall day on the Detroit River at one of Detroit's oldest and most historic buildings. This indoor/outdoor fall beer fest allows you enjoy the view of the Belle Isle Bridge from the two acre lawn and explore the club's history with beer sampling stations in the ballroom, balcony patio overlooking the river, the dance hall, and more! Weather permitting live entertainment on the lawn's renovated band shell.
The Detroit Boat Club Crew was founded in 1839, which makes us the oldest rowing club in North America! The current building was completed in 1902. After years of neglect by the City of Detroit under the former administrations and lack of funding, the Boat Club fell under disrepair. Since Belle Isle is now under the State Park, the crew club is working hard to raise money and volunteer time to help bring this Detroit Gem back to it's glory. We hope you will join us in the effort!
