Pure Ludington Brrrewfest

January, 2024

A sure-fire way to beat cabin fever is with Ludington’s premier winter event, the Pure Ludington Brrrewfest! At past events, more than 15 breweries came to Ludington to offer patrons a taste of the best and most unique flavors of beers, wines, ciders and meads from all around Michigan. The event runs from 1-6pm and is held at Legacy Plaza on north James Street in Ludington.

Pre-sale tickets are available for purchase online only. They are generally $35/person, include six drink tokens, and can be purchased here. Each token is good for 5 oz. of beer or cider. Five additional tokens can be purchased for $5. There is also live entertainment and food available for purchase during the event.

The beneficiary of Pure Ludington Brrrewfest is our local Friends of the Ludington State Park organization.
