Say good-bye to winter and join us for our opening weekend at the Lilac Tree Hotel as we kick off a new season and celebrate big time with The Michigan Craft Beer Opening Weekend. It’s a great way to bring in the 2015 Mackinac Island season in style and even better, we still have great rooms available here at the Lilac Tree and one has your name on it! We have luxurious master suites with large balconies where your view of the water will take your breath away and beautiful two- bedroom suites with three queen beds, and Jacuzzi suites.
The fun begins on Friday night, May 8th at our Meet and Greet at the famous Pink Pony, where you can mingle with World Famous Brew Masters from Petoskey, Bell’s, Cheboygan, New Holland and Mountain Town Breweries. You’ll enjoy sampling the 2015 draft beers that the Pink Pony will be offering this season. In previous years, there were 12 draft beers but with the winter construction, there’s now 24 draft beer taps! Let it flow, let it flow, let it flow!
Plus, mouth watering Hors de’oeuvres and light refreshments to satisfy your palette.
Next, find out how beer makes you smart at our Trivia Night at the Pink Pony Bar hosted by our very own Josh Carley, where the questions will put your knowledge of beer to the test. Sit down, relax or stand on your feet to live music with The Pink Pony’s very own Myk Rise as he rocks the stage with your favorite tunes! He’ll be performing right behind the new 24 draft beer taps so you won’t miss anything.
On Saturday morning, The Pink Pony will have education classes on Michigan made beer. The classes will be taught by famous Brew Masters from Petoskey, Bell’s, Cheboygan, New Holland and Mountain Town Breweries. After that, you’ll be able to say that you got your Masters in Beer! Cheers! Enjoy an All-American Mackinac Island BBQ with brats, beer (select your favorites) and corn hole on The Pink Pony Patio while taking in the breath-taking view of the water. The stage will be rocking again starting with Brian Thomas, then you can dive into our Beer Pairing Dinner where you will enjoy a full 5-Course dinner perfectly prepared for you by our Pink Pony Master Chef where all meals will be paired with the perfect selection of Michigan Craft Beers. Then we wrap up our night and weekend with another stellar performance by Myk Rise.
