The annual Microbrew Review is back in Oak Park this weekend, and if you aren't familiar the event you can expect to see lots of beer and zero waste. The event is organized by the Oak Park-based non-profit Seven Generations Ahead, which supports sustainable community development, as well as the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild.
More than 120 craft beers from 60 breweries in Illinois and the Midwest will be featured, and proceeds go to Seven Generations Ahead.
The event runs from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. this Saturday, Aug. 17, but there are longer sessions available. For tickets and more information, go here. Ticket sales end at 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15. All of the action is on Marion Street between Pleasant and Lake streets. There will also be food vendors and live entertainment.
For craft beer fans, or people looking to explore the growing industry, this is a must-attend event that features bigger names like Goose Island and Three Floyds as well as new Chicago-area breweries like Flesk and One Trick Pony.
