Hey everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend & I know this post is a little late in the evening, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
Any way, I wanted to share with you my weekend in Traverse City. It is probably my favorite place to go here in Michigan. So much so that I get territorial when I see other people there, like it’s solely for me ( I know irrational). So, I thought about it and since it’s not just mine ( insert sad face) I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite spots for others to enjoy!
We started the day with some friends at Right Brain Brewery. I had never been there before, probably due to the fact I am not a big beer drinker. However, recently I have found a love for stouts. I decided my first drink of the day would be their Imperial CEO Stout ( 9.6% …. starting the day off right I know) with some chips & salsa of course!
The inside is pretty cool as well. Lots of random decor that doesn’t really make sense but somehow goes together, and a salon attached. That’s right, you can get a little buzz and your hair done all in one spot!
On to the next! Our second stop was Suttons Bay Ciders. My partner and I stumbled upon this place by accident on day, but ever since it has become our favorite place to go when visiting the Traverse City area. The view is amazing, and the cider & staff are great as well. Our friends who met up with us had never been before, so I was excited to show them! We were lucky enough that the rain stopped just in time to check out the view ( the wind on the other hand was in full swing).
Our final stop of the day was Hop Lot Brewery. It’s not far from Sutton’s Bay so the drive isn’t bad. The vibe is pretty rustic with more outdoor seating than indoor. Also, if you find yourself still wanting cider from the second stop, its covered! Since it was pretty cold and windy the outdoor fire pits were perfect to sit and have a drink by. We even made some new friends!
I hope you enjoyed viewing a little piece of my weekend. If you ever find yourself in the Traverse City area I hope you check out these places for yourself! If you have a favorite spot you’d like to share I would love to hear!
