First-Ever Chicago White Sox Craft Beer Festival Takes Over Guaranteed Rate Field

The inaugural ChiSox Craft Beer Fest is making Guaranteed Rate Field its home on Saturday, September 14 for the Chicago White Sox’s first-ever brew festival.

With 37 breweries in the lineup, the Chicago White Sox Craft Beer Festival will allow patrons to taste-test some of the best brews in Chicago and beyond at the White Sox’s home base, Guaranteed Rate Field on the south side. Plenty of the Sox’s corporate sponsors will be attending this Chicago beer festival, including Modelo, Revolution, and Goose Island, but the list spans beyond that hookup. The Sox will be at an away game that day, so the whole field is open to exploring during the beer festival.
