Try Over 40 Beers From Around the Midwest at Chicago Craft Beer Festival This Weekend in Fulton Market

Starting on June 18th, popular West Loop destination PB&J: Pizza Beer, & Jukebox will team up with the Chicago Craft Beer Festival to bring the 9th annual event to the Fulton Market neighborhood. In total, the festival will feature incredible craft brews of both local and national origin and live music. Those who have purchased tickets will receive admission to the tasting area, samples of more than 40 beers from all over the midwest and beyond. Additionally, guests at this festival in Chicago will receive a commemorative tasting glass and tasting guide as well as access to various live music acts, making it a weekend to remember in the city.

We harped on the importance of festival season in Chicago. It’s honestly the lifeblood of Summertime Chicago and that goes well beyond the big ticket events such as Lollapalooza, the Chicago Auto Show, and Taste of Chicago. Smaller neighborhood festivals provide an electric energy for smaller groups looking to avoid 5 figure crowds. Here are the details for Chicago Craft Beer Festival:
