Bent Paddle Brewing Company is turning three, and taking over West Michigan Street for its annual Festiversary to celebrate.

On Saturday, May 14, from 2–8pm, Bent Paddle’s block of West Michigan Street and surrounding parking lots will be filled with food trucks, vendors, activities, neighborhood groups, live music, and, of course, a whole lot of Bent Paddle beer.

It's definitely not #calmbeforethestorm over here at #bentpaddle! Beer never sleeps and neither do we #allhandsondeck #spottheowners
