Event cancellation policy

Due to our limited capacity, all sales are final for all events requiring pre-payment. If you find you cannot attend, you are welcome to send someone else in your place. We appreciate your understanding. For more information, call our Shelby Township store at (586) 843-3690, our Royal Oak store at (248) 850-7175 or our Auburn Hills store at (248) 564-2134.

Event seating

Event seating is assigned and doors open 30 minutes prior to listed start times unless otherwise specified. Through June 30, 2021, we are not seating unaffiliated groups together during events to ensure the comfort and safety of our guests. Starting July 1, 2021, while we will continue this practice temporarily, there also will be a question on event registration forms asking whether guests are OK being seated with other unaffiliated parties to help us most efficiently use our space. We will continue to re-evaluate this seating policy as we go forward and make changes based on the current public health situation.

Virtual Event

Book a Virtual House Party with us!

Our Virtual House Party option via MBTB Tasting Rooms and Blue Skies Brewery-Auburn Hills brings wine and/or beer tastings directly into your living room via Zoom!

Here's how it works: You pick the date and time (subject to availability) and one of our trusty MBTB or BSB team members will arrange your own personalized wine or beer tasting. It can be one-on-one or with up to 98 of your friends (appropriately socially distanced, of course, or they can dial into Zoom separately). You can choose the wines/beers from our stash, or you can leave it to us. No minimum wine/beer purchased is required beyond the session fee, so you're welcome to split bottles between friends, each get your own, whatever you like. Your dedicated host will lead you through the wine and beers, answer your questions, etc. Great for our regulars who miss hanging out, bachelorette parties, birthday parties, family get-togethers, block parties, etc.

Cost per 1-hour session (does not include wine/beer):

Featured Artist

MBTB Tasting Room is home to a long-term gallery exhibit by Michigan artist Stephanie Schlatter. Stephanie, who hails from the Grand Rapids area, describes herself as “a painter of color, with a passion for expressing those things which inspire me.” One of those things is Michigan wine country, which served as the catalyst for Stephanie’s series, “On the Michigan Wine Trail.” The OTMWT works are her vivid depictions of the state’s sweeping vineyard vistas, but Stephanie says it’s more than just an attempt to re-create beautiful scenery.

“It explores the essence of the region’s many seasonal faces,” she explained. “It reveals the hearts of the people who live there, and what happens to them as they inhabit and grow attached to this enchanting place. It captures the magic that I personally found there, that has in turn captured me. My series, like their wine, tells of the people – their journeys, their art, and the relationships they’ve built with the land. The stories are all there on the canvas, like a bottle of wine, waiting for us to uncork it.”

You can see portions of Stephanie’s OTMWT series in person at MBTB Tasting Room, and also purchase originals and/or prints of various sizes on site.
