Perrin Brewing Hosts Backyard Bash This Saturday

Hi, friends! Here’s another exciting event happening this weekend.

Bust a move at Perrin Brewing’s Backyard Bash in Comstock Park – a huge anniversary blowout celebrating 6 years spent making innovative, quality craft beers.

The party’s going down Saturday, Sept. 8 from 4-11pm with a stacked event schedule full of live music, food trucks, specialty beers, vendors and The Annual Cornhole Tournament. Tickets are available for purchase in the Perrin Pub or on Eventbrite.

Hand-eye coordination is important for both efficient beer drinking and
dominating The Annual Cornhole Tournament, presented by Michigan Cornhole, which kicks off at 3 p.m. In the past, Perrin has hosted 100 teams in this corny Tourney.

The cost to play is $40 per team (two people per team) with a portion of proceeds benefiting the Can’d Aid Foundation. The winning team will take home a cash prize. 

Specialty beer offerings will include the 2018 Malted Milk Ball – an Imperial Porter with cocoa nibs and Polynesian vanilla beans aged in bourbon barrels for 9 months.

The Cigar Lounge will feature hand-rolled cigars aired with big barrel-aged beers and Perrin favorite beers will be available throughout the day. Great beer is even greater-er paired with tasty eats from local food trucks, so Perrin will round up a variety of food truck offerings including fare from Patty Matters, Pizzaiolo, Wood-Fire Pizza, Blue Spoon Catering and Ice Box Ice Cream.

While eating, drinking, and carrying on, folks can enjoy live music allevening with the following lineup:

4:00 pm – Catch surf rock and ska ranging from dirty Dick Dale-like licks
to bright, poppy ukulele dance sounds by Grand Rapids-based Sailor Kicks

5:00 pm – Get yourself a hearty dollop of rock music by Devin and the Dead

6:00 pm – Americana band Paradise Outlaw dishes out a dose of feel-good
rock n’ roll country music

7:00 pm – Move your boots to sweet country sounds featuring twangy guitars and too-legit rhythms with Bootstrap Boys

8:15 pm – Grab a beer and listen to blues-and-rock singin’ teenage
sensation Jack Kershaw

10:00 pm – Hannah Rose and the GravesTones tend to the garden of SOUL with a cross-pollination of funk, blues and rock n’ roll

Rain or shine, there’ll be beer to drink and the party will go on. Several
large tents will be set up in the yard to protect attendees from the sun
and ever-unpredictable Michigan weather. Party-goers are encouraged to
bring chairs and blankets, but Perrin asks that no personal coolers or
beverages are brought in.

Attendees are guaranteed plenty of fun, laughter and funky tunes on Sept.
8, as well as local vendors and freshly rolled cigars… a recipe for a good

Cheers – to six years of hand-crafted Michigan beer! See more details on the Perrin Brewing.
