TRAVERSE CITY, MI—The Beach Bums are excited to host their 1st Annual Microbrew & Wine Festival July 8th and 9th 2011. “A lot of people have been waiting for us to use Wuerfel Park for more than just baseball,” said John Wuerfel. “We have a beautiful facility with parking, restrooms, 20 concession areas, beer and ice cream parlors with seating for 5,000 + people.” We are especially excited to showcase the microbrews and wines made in Michigan. Michigan has some of the finest, if not the finest microbrews and wines in the US.
