There are no MHF membership cards or badges given out before the festival. When you arrive at MHF make sure to check so we can verify who you are and that you meet the minimum age requirements. Once you’re checked in you will receive your membership badge. The badge is required to be worn while attending MHF and visible for you to receive samples from other participating members/clubs.
Although the winners of the Michigan Beer Cup are announced at MHF the competition is run separately from the festival. All information regarding entry fees, dates, entry drop off for the Michigan Beer Cup can be found at http://www.michiganbeercup.com

There will be several MHF events revolving around food, from our Feast of Friday, Bar-B-Q competition and Beer Pairing Dinner. Details for those events can be found on our Events page. There will also be other food options available such as a food truck offering multiple food options. Details will be coming soon.
