Hot Glass + Cold Beer
Note that this event was in 2013. Stay Tuned for 2014 Information.
The 4th annual “Hot Glass + Cold Beer” event takes place at the Glass Academy August 1st, 2013 from 5-10pm with live glassblowing demonstrations, tasty cold beer from selected local breweries, delicious Mexican food, and great community conversation.
If any tickets are still available the day of the event they are $65 at the door.
“Our customers demand unique experiences and there is nothing else like this in Metro Detroit.” explains Chris Nordin, one of the founding owners. “We bring together hand crafted beers, traditional glassblowing and an exciting take home glass vessel to a crowd of engaged guests. It’s a knock out performance and a great night with new friends.
Customers receive a handcrafted glass cup with each ticket purchase. They can then use this glass to sample the unique beers in this studio show. Some customers will upgrade the basic glass for a more fanciful mug or pilsner for an additional fee, as well as placing custom orders during the show. Watching the glassware being made before their eyes has been one of the best highlights for crowds at the Glass Academy.
Each year we pick breweries in the area to come and showcase their beers. We will feature Kuhnhenn’s Brewery in Warren, Copper Canyon, Motor City Brewery, Rochester Mills and Witches’ Hat for the 2013 event.
