Event Preview | HOMES Nucleate Fest

HOMES Nucleate Festival

HOMES Brewery hosts their annual Nucleate festival on Saturday June 8 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The event features breweries from around the world and will benefit charity.

Nucleate takes place at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Ann Arbor on Saturday June 8 from 1 – 6 p.m. All proceeds from the festival will go to Ozone House which provides emergency shelter, safe space, transitional housing and counseling for homeless youth, LGBT runaway teens and families in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.

Head Brewer Nick Pancham√© said “The original idea behind Nucleate was to bring all our favorite breweries and beers from out of state to Ann Arbor. So beer fans get to try beers you’d normally have to travel for, and all the industry folks get to hang out, share ideas, and form new friendships.”


General Admission tickets include 20 beer samples, a commemorative tasting glass, a Nucleate 2024 Stout bottle, and entry at 2pm. GA tickets are $100.

VIP Tickets include 20 beer samples, a commemorative tasting glass, a Nucleate 2024 Stout bottle, early entry at 1pm, and a selection of two vintage bottles from previous fests. VIP tickets are $175. Vintage bottles include Nucleate 2020, Nucleate 2021, Nucleate 2022, and Nucleate 2023.
