CRAFT BEER LIVE also has the support of a number of local craft beer shops and restaurants, they will be providing the cuisine at the event to match the beers.

There will be a variety of live music and performances in addition.
As the weather will be heating up with the onset of early summer, it's a great time to enjoy a cold one outside!
