TRAVERSE CITY — Looking for a unique venue for sampling your favorite craft beers from Short’s Brewing Company?
The Traverse Tall Ship Company is hosting its “Microbrew Tasting Cruise” every Sunday evening beginning this Sunday through Sept. 4 (6:30-8:30pm).
Along with the brews, pizza from Crusted Creations will be served. The cost is $50 per person and space is limited to 60 per sail.
“What an awesome beer adventure,” says Jon “Woj” Wojtowicz, Short’s Beer Liberator. “I’m really excited about the rest of the summer and couldn’t thank you enough for coming up with such an amazing idea.”
As the ship’s captain sails across Grand Traverse Bay, Woj (or another Short’s representative) will discuss and share four unique beer samples, and share Short’s brewing philosophy and role in Michigan’s overall craft brewing scene.
With a 60 passenger sailing capacity (24 overnight capacity), there is plenty of space for sitting and moving around the decks while under sail. While aboard the Manitou, passengers are free to leave the sailing to the experienced crew or lend a hand and learn the art of the sailor.
