Annual Watermelon Juggling Ranchero Beer Release Party

Yep, that’s right fibheads, it’s that time of year again! Watermelon Juggling Ranchero Ale release ONLY at FIBFEST. Don’t miss it! It tastes exactly like you’re drinking a watermelon Jolly Rancher *. It’s delicious and always sells out FAST!

Only at FibFest, our huge 2 day bash with Live Music with many GREAT Chicago Blues bands, food trucks, and more! It’s all happening Friday July 22nd & Saturday July 23rd. Get it before it’s gone.
