This weekend is the annual Michigan Craft Beer Stroll in downtown Royal Oak. 

The event features over 20 local businesses, and just one ticket gets you a beer and a snack from each. You can get more information at DineRoyalOak.org. Tickets start at $40. 

Stephanie McIntyre joined us on The Nine to tell us more about the event, along with executive chef John Wingate from Goodnite Gracie Jazz and Martini Bar. He showed us how to cook with craft beer, and you can get his meatball recipe below.
