Frankenmuth, a.k.a. "Little Bavaria" is home to Michigan's largest beer tasting event this weekend, as the World Expo of Beer takes place at Heritage Park on Friday from 5-10 pm and Saturday from 3-10 pm.

The event is hosted by the Frankenmuth Jaycees and will benefit several local charities. Since this is a beer tasting event, only those 21 and older will be admitted. Tickets are $7 for admission, which includes a souvenir tasting mug. Sampling tickets are a dollar each.

Nearly 300 different beers will be available for you to try, many of which are made by small breweries right here in Michigan.

Use of a designated driver is highly recommended for those who plan to sample a lot of beers, or you can plan to spend the night at a local hotel/motel. www.worldexpoofbeer.com

This is a very popular event, so plan to get there early.
