Guild Events — 24 April 2013

West Loop Craft Beer Fest 2014
The Illinois Craft Brewers Guild, Neighbors of West Loop, and Chicago French Market have come together to host the 2nd Annual celebration to close out Chicago Craft Beer Week 2014.

On Saturday, May 24th, the city’s largest craft beer outdoor block party will commence with a VIP event beginning at 12:00pm, and General Admission running between 1:00pm to 5:00pm.

The West Loop Craft Beer Fest will offer a VIP hour to kick off the day, which includes $10 in food tickets provided by participating Chicago French Market vendors, and two VIP tents featuring specialty pours by Goose Island and Lagunitas.

Our General Admission experience will include craft beer, hours of entertainment and food for purchase. The CCBW celebration of neighborhoods ends in the heart of the West Loop, and we invite all neighborhoods to come down on May 24th to celebrate the craft beer experience with friends and family!

Designated drivers or non-beer drinkers CAN access the fest without a ticket. We reserve the right to remove anyone found sharing beer.


If still available, General Admission tickets at the door will be $65!
