Perrin Brewing Company Announces Backyard Bash

Perrin Brewing Company announces the return of Backyard Bash! Get ready for live music, specialty beers, games and local food trucks at the 9th Anniversary Backyard Bash on September 25 from 4-11pm. Tickets are available here.

Music

The day’s funky local music lineup will include:

Nathan Walton and the Remedy (4:15pm – 5:15pm) True to the Michigan rock and roll spirit of Bob Seger, Rare Earth and Grand Funk Railroad, the soulful West Michigan native’s original music delivers a level of compassion, understanding and depth well beyond his years.

Melophobix (5:35pm – 6:35pm) Cage-free funk from Grand Rapids. Melophobix presents dynamic live performances driven by genre-bending songwriting, and fueled by depth of instrumentation and vocal capabilities.

Flexadecibel (6:45pm – 7:45pm) A high-energy seven-piece funk/rock/soul band that brings the heat!

The Hacky Turtles (8pm – 9:15pm) Hailing from Grand Rapids, The Hacky Turtles whip up an eclectic recipe of Alternative Funk/Rock with a decent dollop of Durty Folk.

Desmond Jones Band (9:30pm – 10:30pm) A sensational midwestern jamboree complete with twangy rock and rocking twang.

Beer

Every backyard hang needs great beer, so Perrin’s brewers crafted something special for the 9th anniversary Backyard Bash: Bashtoberfest (5.5% ABV). Offered on draft and in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, this sessionable German lager offers notes of biscuit and caramel with aromas of black pepper for a sweet, malty finish.

Malted Milk Ball (12% ABV) will also return in 2021 on draft and in 22 oz. bottles. A deconstructed malted milk ball treat brewed with lactose, spiced with vanilla and cacao nibs and laid down to age in oak bourbon barrels.

Cornhole

While you’re enjoying a freshly crafted Perrin beer, test your hand-eye coordination! The annual cornhole tournament will take place at 3pm. Early Registration is required. Cost is $40 for a team, and the fee includes admission to the party. Register here.

Eats & Vendors

Local food trucks will roll into the backyard for all your snacking needs. Check out eats from Pressed in Time, Daddy Pete’s BBQ, Pizza Parliament and Patty Matters.

Other on-site vendors will include Nothing Bundt Cakes, offering mini bundt cakes; Pop Daddy Snacks, who will sample pretzels and popcorn; Maddie Ann Soap Co., with soap, candles, bath bombs and lotion; and MMS Pottery, offering pottery and beer glasses. You can also find art by Old Growth Creative; creams and other products by Purely CBD; handmade headbands from Leopard and Lotus; etched glassware and collectibles from Cheers & Happiness; and freshly printed tees from Citizen Shirts.
