Join us in downtown Oak Park on August 16, 2014 for the largest zero-waste*, craft beer event in the Midwest! Enjoy all Oak Park has to offer while sampling unique brews and delicious food on a beautiful mid-summer’s afternoon.

Featuring over 150 inventive brews from the Midwest’s finest craft breweries, live music and small plates from popular local restaurants, this is one of Chicagoland’s top craft beer festivals of the summer.

And, with nothing from the event going to land-fill, by coming to our event you’re doing a good thing for the planet too!

Co-produced with the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild.
