Royal Oak Beer Fest
In the middle of January under the roof of the Royal Oak Farmers Market, brewers, musicians, foodies, and people who just downright love beer all gather together to knock a few back and celebrate great brews from around the globe. From the 56 breweries on site, visitors are invited to enjoy 15 complimentary 3-ounce pours (VIP ticket holders receive 20 tastings), which may prove a difficult decision, as there will be 143 different beers to choose from, as well as a handful of ciders. A live DJ provides a soundtrack for tipping samples—or full mugs, available for purchase—back, while three food trucks and Detroit BBQ Company provide snacks to soak up libations.
