We're turning four years old this June and you're invited to join our birthday celebration and fundraiser!

Saturday, June 17 we're firing up this Beerthday Bash with Lawn Games, Live Music, Beer Can Chicken on the grill, and Nightswimmer Stout Birthday Cake.

Plus, we're raising money for the non-profit Friends of the Betsie Valley Trail. Join in the fundraising fun during our 2nd Annual Fun Ride/Walk from Elberta to Stormcloud on the Betsie Valley Trail and Fundraiser in the Pub, both to raise money for the Friends of the Betsie Valley Trail.
