Savor sips from dozens of craft breweries at this special event put on by the Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance and the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild. Attendees have the chance to explore the lush conservatory displays and gardens at night while sipping through taste after taste of special concoctions from breweries around the country, brought together in the conservatory’s jungle atmosphere.

Exclusivity and quality are the name of the game at the Chicago Craft Beer Festival, hosting 40 breweries each day of the two-day festival to the tune of 160 individual beers to try. With nothing but specialty, small batch, and seasonal brews in sight – along with live music and delicious dessert – this festival brings out the best of the best right in the heart of the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

Imagine the movie “Night at the Museum” plus tasty samples of breweries’ spring seasonal brews, just without all the talking exhibits (unless the alcohol really goes to your head). Held at the famous Field Museum under the watchful eye of Sue the T-Rex, the festival hosts local and domestic labels alike for a hoppy night of fun.
