5th Annual Oak Park Micro Brew Review August 18, 2012 3pm -7pm



Co-produced by Seven Generations Ahead and the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild and in collaboration with the Downtown Oak Park Association and the Pleasant District, the Oak Park Micro Brew Review will feature tastings of over 100 craft beers from more than 50 microbreweries across the Midwest.  But this is not just your average beer festival;  proceeds from the event help fund SGA’s non-profit work to build healthy, environmentally sustainable communities in the Midwest.  So along with celebrating the microbrews of the most skilled craft brew masters in the region, attendees can also celebrate sustainable living while sampling select food tastings that incorporate organic food from local farmers.  And to make sure minimal event waste is sent to the landfill, this festival models Zero Waste best practices.

Micro Brew.  Micro Waste.
