The Back Lot, a “Beer Garden with Food Trucks,” Opens in Downtown Petoskey

Rolling alongside the city’s approval of food trucks, downtown Petoskey is welcoming in a new spot to enjoy the sun, warm weather and cold drinks.

The Back Lot, a beer garden with food trucks, opened up this past weekend.

The Back Lot will be open year-round and has space for six different food trucks and a bar with close to 30 craft beers on tap.

Those from around the area say it’s a welcome addition to the community and helps fill a space at the perfect time of year.

“It adds a great environment to bring the community together, outside, to enjoy Northern Michigan’s finest food trucks, summer is such a great time and a popular time that it’s great to have an area that people can bring their dogs, their kids and sit outside,” Marissa Pattullo, said.

The Back Lot is open until 10 p.m. on weekdays and 11 p.m. on weekends.
