"We're happy to do our small part to support these folks since the hospitality industry has been part of our lives forever," says Hilary Johnson, a partner in the Gusto Group, which is putting on the event. The Beer Festival, which will take place from noon to 8 p.m. on May 18 at Brittlebank Park, will feature dozens of craft brews, a beer-themed decathlon, a beer school, a homebrewers' village, and live music from bands including Jordan Igoe and the Royal Tinfoil.
