Midwest Brewers Fest
http://www.midwestbrewersfest.com/

The Midwest Brewers Fest is a craft beer festival organized by local brewing enthusiasts. This is our inaugural year and we expect over fifty breweries, brewpubs, and AHA registered homebrew clubs to serve about 200 different beers right here in Plainfield, Illinois on the banks of the DuPage River. We will have local artisanal food, great craft beer, local musical artists and brewing expositions. Come join us and meet some of your favorite brewers!

Stop by the homebrew tent and say hello!
