The first week of fall brings with it the 5th annual Berserker Music Fest! September 28th isn't just World Rabies Day this year (yes, that's real). As always, Berserker V features 3 stages of extreme music from near and far. One night only at The Crofoot complex in Pontiac, Michigan!

Coinciding with Oktoberfest, this year's event features 6 regional breweries; Dark Horse (Marshall), Cellarmen's (Hazel Park), Cognition (Ishpeming), Batch (Detroit), Fillmore 13 (Pontiac) and Exferimentation (Pontiac). Craft beer enthusiasts get to hang out on the VIP balcony, chat up the brewers themselves all while enjoying exclusive samples & taking in the main stage entertainment.
