In addition to sating stomachs with pulled-pork sandwiches and entertaining ears with live music, Cellar Brewing Company's dedicated staff fills glasses with libations fresh from its microbrewery, winery, and artisan distillery. The restaurant's plush, leather sofas sit beneath its rust-hued ceiling, and at a blond-wood bar, bartenders serve house brews and a variety of wraps and sandwiches. A glass of stout awakens taste buds craving a darker brew, and the cellar's servers pluck bottles of Michigan Apple Delight wine directly from in-house wine trees to complement sun-dried tomato and turkey sandwiches and soft pretzels.

During the Festival of Trees, the Muskegon Museum of Art opens its doors for guests to frolic through a winter wonderland of themed trees and seasonal décor. Partygoers can grab an hors d'oeuvre and jam along with a live blues band, a dance-floor motivator even better than pistols rhythmically fired at dancers’ feet. In time for snow season, staffers deck the halls of the museum with holiday decorations and custom-designed spruces to lighten the mood. Revelers can snag potent nog from the cash bar and take sips while viewing the mechanical movements of a model train set, or track down your pet scone's long-lost relative in the gingerbread village. During the festivities, patrons can explore the museum's hallowed halls, which contain exhibits including celebrated paintings, sculptures, and cultural artifacts.

It may be best known for its mitten shape, but Michigan is also gaining notoriety as a craft-beer mecca. Lakeshore Brew Fest is further proof of that. Nearly 500 craft-beer lovers will descend on the picturesque shores of Lake Michigan for the festival, where they can enjoy live musical performances and flavorful cuisine. However, the fest's focus is on local libations, so it will offer drinks from seven area producers, including cider from Vander Mill and beer from B.O.B.'s Brewery, New Holland Brewing, and Founders Brewing Co., whose cofounder talked to the Groupon Guide about its sessionable All Day IPA. All proceeds from Lakeshore Brew Fest go to Camp Blodgett, a nearly 100-year-old organization providing Kent County's youth with after-school programs and summer-camp adventures, among other activities.

Nestled along the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, Fenn Valley Vineyards & Wine Cellar capitalizes on the water's air-warming capabilities, growing tender grapes and crafting them into award-winning wines. Their 20th annual Wine Festival takes place on the winery's expansive lawn under a 4,000-square-foot tent pitched for the occasion. Revelers deepen the connection between their ears, noses, and throats with classic rock courtesy of The Trace, traditional Mexican fare and barbecue chicken and ribs, and a palate-wowing library of wines. Guests equipped with a souvenir glass can catch a ride on a People Hauler and move between three tasting stations set up throughout the vineyard, choosing between multiple small tastes or one full glass of a Fenn Valley oeno-explosion. Reds include the delicately fruity capriccio and the more robust merlot, while whites delight with an apple-kissed riesling and an ice wine sweeter than a pineapple Gummi Bear hitting a half-court buzzer beater.
