The Illinois Beer Festival will be located at the Grundy County Fairgrounds, providing a fittingly Midwesten backdrop to this summertime event.
"We couldn't ask for a better location to host the Illinois Beer Festival. There's ample free parking and plenty of space for brewers tents. People like seeing the old fair buildings in the background, it gives the festival a really unique setting," Hansen said.
There will also be live music throughout the event, courtesy of the band Wicked Vic. Specializing in high-energy rock covers from the 80's, 90's and now, taking a page from artists like Pink, Joan Jett, Blondie and Alanis Morissette.
