Royal Oak Brewery to Mark 20th Anniversary

Two decades of craft beer to be celebrated with one big tent party


Join the Royal Oak Brewery staff in celebrating their 20th anniversary of craft beer on Saturday, August 29 from 1 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.

A huge family-friendly beer tent will be erected adjacent to the brewery to house the party, which includes live bands throughout the day. Beer festival favorites The Reefermen and Longneck Strangler will be taking the stage at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively.

Outdoor food and beer service will be available, and Royal Oak Mayor Jim Ellison will be on hand for a special beer tapping at 6 p.m. (It’s been confirmed to be an Imperial Belgian IPA.)

“We’re delighted to be in Royal Oak and are proud to have been part of this wonderful community for 20 years,” says Manager Drew Ciora. "We’re looking forward to many more.”

Admission to the event is free, although there is a charge for food and beverages.

Brewmaster Tim Selewski takes pride in perfecting true-to-style beer without going to the extremes like many other breweries.

“Most of the time, I just want to drink a beer,” says Selewski. “I don’t need to have all these other flavors covering up the important ingredients. Those beers do serve a purpose, and are helping the craft beer movement, but I find that our regular customers – who have kept us in business this long – want a quality product without all the hype.”

Selewski will be on hand for the event, as will Assistant Brewer Richard Chesstnutt. Both brewers will be happy to provide more information on beer styles, ingredients, and the brewing process.

And don’t be afraid to ask for a food and beer pairing as all of the brewery’s servers have passed the Cicerone certification-testing program.
