Illinois Beer Festival will take place on Saturday, August 19th at the Grundy County Fairgrounds in Morris, IL.

The event fairgrounds are conveniently located one mile north of I-80 on Rt 47, approximately 12 miles west of the 1-80 / I-55 interchange. This year is the 4th annual Illinois Beer Festival.

The festival will run from 3pm – 8pm and cost $35 per pass. Passes include access to festival grounds and up to twenty-four 3-4 oz. samples. Non drinking passes are available at the entry on the day of event for $5 and entertainment / food vendors will be present. Representatives of each Illinois brewery will be in attendance pouring samples and informing festival-goers of their wares. With the new focus of "Illinois only" breweries, this year's Illinois Beer festival will be a celebration of our state's exploding craft beer industry. We are celebrating the fact that Illinois produces some of the world's best beers and also the resurgence of a by-gone era when there was a brewery in every town, like during the era when Illinois was founded two hundred years ago.
