Popular Pint With The Past Craft Beer Tasting Fundraiser Event Returns to Gilmore Car Museum on February 12th

If you have cabin fever, are yearning for spring, or are searching for the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, the Gilmore Car Museum’s Pint With The Past event might provide exactly what you’re looking for. DRAFT Magazine once called the Gilmore Car Museum’s unique event “the only place to drink a Michigan-brewed beer alongside an ultra-rare Tucker ’48 Sedan – unless you have one parked in the garage.”

Pint With The Past, one of the Gilmore Car Museum’s premiere fundraising events for more than a decade, returns on Saturday, February 12th, 2022. Guests will enjoy sampling local craft beers, wines, and spirits, served with variety of heavy appetizers, amid the museum’s vintage cars, special exhibits, and historical storytelling. Guests will sip their way through various tasting and appetizer stations mixed throughout museum galleries, including special presentations that showcase Chevrolet Corvettes, Race Cars with Michigan Roots, and high-performance Ford Mustangs and Chevrolet Camaros.

Live music for the evening will be provided by local favorite Out of Favor Boys, who have developed a reputation as an entertaining and interactive contemporary blues band. Additionally, guests can enjoy the easy-listening music of guitarist, Jack Dastoli, in the Muscle Car Gallery.

In celebration of America’s prohibition era and the Roaring Twenties, don’t forget to dress as your best flapper, dapper gentleman, gangster, or rum runner for our costume contest! Guests can also make memories with friends at several photo ops located throughout the museum.

Pint with the Past is open to adults ages 21 and older. The evening runs from 7 pm – 10 pm ET on Saturday, February 12th, and makes a perfect Valentine’s weekend event. Tickets can be purchased in advance online at GilmoreCarMuseum.org, or at the door on the day of the event.
