Winter Beer Fest at the Royal Oak Music Theatre: January 26th

What if we told you that an opportunity has presented itself where you, dear reader, have the chance to both sample from over 100 delicious craft beers from around the world AND help out a good cause? Too good to be true, you say? Wrong!

This Saturday, January 26th, the Royal Oak Music Theatre will be playing host to Winter Beer Fest 4. The frothy fest is sponsored by Westborn Markets and benefits the Michigan-based non-profit Camp Casey. Camp Casey is a horse-based therapy program for children with cancer.

In addition to the beer, there will also be food and a live performance by the popular acoustic duo Reggie and Nick.

The festival is set to run from 8pm to midnight.
