This highly anticipated fest of rare and unique wood- and barrel-aged brews is in its 13th year. The Illinois Craft Brewers Guild brings together about 90 brewers with 300-something beers ranging in style from stouts and porters, pales, sours, ciders, fruit beers and more. This year’s Barricale project challenges brewers to create interesting one-off beers aged 3 months to a year in Heaven Hill barrels. A list of breweries is still to come, but tickets are already on sale and they go quickly.
