Long Grove Craft Beer Fest

One of Chicagoland’s biggest beer parties, the annual Long Grove Craft Beer Fest, will return April 27th for another day dedicated to the area’s top brewers. Discounted early bird discounted tickets are now on sale through From noon to 4 pm, this one-day celebration of locally made, hand-crafted beer features over 20 top tier breweries in the heart of historic downtown Long Grove. The new location, Brother’s Field, can accommodate more breweries and more people, as the event will not be limited to one tented area as in previous years when it was in the parking lot next door.

Brother’s Field is set to become Lake County’s largest beer garden, with a curated list of beer makers (coming soon) pouring unlimited 3 oz. tastes inside commemorative, take-home glasses for one ticket price outside under the spring sun. The event will include live music outside of the tent on the hometown stage, allowing for even more use of Brother’s Field for the tasting action. Guests can also expect to enjoy food vendors and Long Grove’s famed vintage village as the backdrop. Craft Beer Fest gives 21 and older ticketholders the opportunity to visit any brewer station as much as they’d like to sample freshly brewed suds and get tasting points from the pourers. There will be merchandise and branded Craft Beer Fest apparel available for purchase.
