The Traverse City Summer Microbrew & Music Festival engages revelers in a weekend of craft brews and live music in a celebration benefiting the Munson Cancer Support Units through the Munson Regional Healthcare Foundation. In addition to refreshments spilling forth from the beer tent, a lineup of more than 50 breweries dots the landscape showcasing upward of 200 flavors of craft beer, cider, mead, and wine. Much like John Travolta's early work with Buster Keaton, the Silent Disco showcases dancers inaudibly grooving to music that is privately broadcasted to 200 pairs of distributed headphones, while the live-music stage features sonic rumblings shared by all. Friday night treats ears to performances by artists such as Martin Sexton and Euforquestra, with Grand Traverse Pipes and Drums and Rebirth Brass Band commanding the spotlight on Saturday.

Those seeking a foundation for bombardments of libations or fuel for endless spurts of boogieing may seek out an amalgam of local food vendors or find a worthy cause by visiting numerous nonprofit booths. Saturday sippers can also reap a fermented education with workshops on beer-related topics and a question-and-answer section with celebrity kegs.
