Beer Events with Friends!

The Festival of Wood & Barrel-Aged Beers, North America's largest and most prestigious barrel-aged beer festival and competition, returns to Chicago November 8-9 at the UIC Forum.

More than 200 craft breweries from coast to coast will pour nearly 400 of their rarest, most exclusive wood and barrel-aged beer, with every beer at the festival and competition having been aged in a wooden barrel or having come into contact with wood.

Want to be a part of history, among the first (and sometimes only) to taste some of the most exciting, exotic barrel-aged beers on Earth? We thought so.
