Good Libations Beer Fest

Join us for a tropical celebration to close Illinois Craft Beer Week 2018!

Good Libations Beer Fest, the official closing event of Illinois Craft Beer Week, is an intimate festival that brings the tropics to the Chicago lakefront. Hosted at Theater on the Lake against the backdrop of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline, this unique event challenges brewers to be creative by producing and pouring their favorite tropical brews. Guests are invited to sip on tropical-inspired craft beer from more than 60 local and out-of-state breweries and sample gourmet small bites prepared by Chicago chef Cleetus Friedman. Creative tropical attire is encouraged.

Good Libations kicks off at 6:00 PM on Friday, May 25. Ticket holders will enjoy samples from more than 60 different breweries, gourmet small bites, and breathtaking views of the lakefront.

Tickets go on sale March 30th.
