Organizers are promising bigger and better this year, with more breweries, more food trucks, more shaded areas and different cups.

TATE co-owner Mitch Carefoot says this isn’t your typical beer festival, but rather a summer kickoff party that is a celebration of community, flavour and the artistry behind every brew.
