Perani Arena Hosts Inaugural Food, Beer & Wine Fest

On Saturday night, Perani Arena in Flint was the site of the inaugural Food, Beer & Wine Fest.

The event, co-sponsored by Townsquare Media and Country Smokehouse, featured over 60 vendors with 145 beers and 65 wines on hand to sample, and also included fares from local, area restaurants.

The more than 800 people in attendance were also treated to live music and a backyard-like, lawn area that featured live sod where they could play games like bean bag toss and giant Jenga.

Kylie Gates, live events manager for Townsquare Media, said the Food, Beer & Wine Fest was based on an idea similar to the Craft Beer Festival put on in Grand Rapids. She added turnout was better than expected with many day-of, walk-up ticket purchases.

Although there will be a second Michigan Food, Beer & Wine Fest in 2013, a date has yet to be determined.
