Gear Up for Beer Fest: June 15-28


When summer days heat up, sometimes only a cool, crisp beer will do. Thankfully, we’re launching our two-week Beer Fest June 15!
 
The festival will highlight refreshing and light summer brews, including four front porch-, lake-, and tailgate-worthy varieties that maybe you haven’t tried before: sours, saisons, sessions, and as a bonus, ciders. But whatever type of warm-weather beer you like, you'll be sure to find it at Central Market, ready to ice down and enjoy. 

This is going to be one heck of a summer party. Be sure to tag your Beer Fest photos #CMBeerFest so we can share the fun!
