The phenomenon that is craft beers shows no sign of slowing. With Illinois alone home to more than 300 of the nation's 4,000-plus microbreweries, things have never been more 'hops' in!

Windy City brew lovers will again be in taste heaven when Chicago Craft Beer Fest returns for its 8th glorious year. 

Highlights include daily afternoon tastings where visitors who purchase a pass can sample from a pool of more than 70 specialty beers lovingly crafted by 35-plus local and national breweries. Tasting ticket holders are also encouraged to savor the day after the tastings to enjoy the great music acts and more as Craft Beer Fest is being held on Lincoln Ave between Roscoe and Addison.
