[COMP] Grand Rapids Tequila Fest


View Details


Be honest... Are you still slamming tequila shots like an amateur? Does the thought of this Mexican spirit only conjure up images of frat parties and trips to Tijuana? The truth is, tequila can actually be quite refined and complex, and this agave-derived drink can be as delicious sipped straight as it is when mixed in a margarita. Come to The Grand Rapids Tequila Fest at the Devos Place on Saturday, August 13th, where over 100 tequilas, mezcals and cocktails ranging from the simple to the extravagant will be available for tasting in a fun and social setting.

Attendees of The Grand Rapids Tequila Fest will be treated to samplings of the finest brands and varieties of premium and ultra-premium tequilas, as well as tequila liqueurs, crèmes, infusions, mezcals and flavored tequilas. The Mexican spirits can be sampled straight (neat), or in hand-crafted Margaritas and cocktails. Tantalizing tacos and other Mexican favorites from some of Detroit’s best taco trucks will be available for purchase.

The event takes place on Saturday, August 13th, running from 7:00-10:00pm, with a limited-quantity VIP session beginning at 6:00pm. General Tasting tickets are $45 and include a tasting glass, 10 half-ounce sampling tickets and a keepsake photo. VIP Tasting tickets are $65 and allow for a one-hour relaxed atmosphere in which to sample before the Grand Tasting admission begins, plus 15 half-ounce sampling tickets. “Designated Driver” tickets are available for $10 and must accompany a paid attendee.

Attendees of this festival will also enjoy live music, games, and shopping from a variety of vendors. Information including a complete list of tequilas available for tasting, information on taco vendors and more can be found at www.GrandRapidsTequilaFest.com
