The 2010 River City Beer Fest, an Annual Event that supports the Cullather Brain Tumor Quality of Life Center at Bon Secours, will be held at the Diamond May 22 from 12 to 6 p.m. This annual Festival highlights Craft Beer Brewers from across the Nation, allowing patrons to sample many different styles of Beer & Ale.
