Summer + beer = yes. 

It's time for another installment of Summer Beer Fest, and this year's party marks the fourth annual celebration of craft beer. 

On Saturday, June 18 from 7:30-11:00p.m. at Royal Oak Farmers Market, over 100 craft brews will be on hand for sampling from over 40 brewers, plus a number of ciders for those of you who still haven't found the beer for you (it's out there, trust us).
