15 Years of Right Brain Beers

Jan. 28, 2023

It’s been 15 years since Right Brain Brewery of Traverse City opened their doors to bring you creative, sometimes zany concoctions like the Pig Porter, Thai Peanut, Naughty Girl Stout, and Cherry Pie Whole. This Friday and Saturday, they’re ready to celebrate the milestone with an anniversary bash. The two-day party (Feb. 3-4) includes a host of events—from a drag show by the Kalamazoo Kittens to music from Grove of Trees—alongside beer specials and special edition brews. There’s a $10 cover charge, and RRB will be accepting donations for the Women’s Resource Center, with a goal of raising $5,000. If you can’t make the party, head to the brewery the following Saturday, Feb. 11, for their Phantasmagoria Art Exhibition for the Weird and Wonderful. The art show is focused on local artists, and the reception includes live performances, music, and dancing. Get the details on both events by heading to
