Craft breweries (and microbrew sales) are red hot! Celebrating its forth year in 2015, Chicago Craft Beer Festival has grown in wild popularity to become the Windy City's hottest specialty beer gathering. This event draws an eclectic mix of upscale visitors including, of course, lovers of microbrews. 

Highlights include tented tasting areas where visitors can (for a tasting fee) sample from more than 80 craft beers. Among the scores of showcased brews are those from Chicago's Half Acre breweries, Wisconsin's Hinterland, Michigan's Arcadia Ales and Founders Brewing, and Two Brothers in Illinois (to name just a few). There also will be music acts performing both inside and outside the tented areas. 

This event is limited to 2,750 people daily so register early!
