2017 Chicago Ale Fest
Summer Edition

The Chicago Ale Fest - A Chicago Craft Beer Festival

The Chicago Ale Fest is a celebration of American Craft Beer in the heart of Chicago. The 2017 fest will take place on Friday, June 23rd and Saturday, June 24th. Located at Butler Field in historic Grant Park, bordered by the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan, the fest will feature more than 200 American craft beers. The fest will also feature live music and food from some of Chicago’s favorite food trucks. Join us on Chicago’s front lawn for one of the most anticipated craft beer events of the year.

A portion of the proceeds from the fest will benefit the Grant Park Conservancy. The Grant Park Conservancy is a 501c(3) not-for-profit with a mission to provide a permanent body that enables Grant Park to respond and adapt to the changing needs of its users, as the park passes from generation to generation. Some of these needs relate to landscaping, infrastructure, design, cultural activities, and environmental issues.

The Chicago Ale Fest is a Lou Dog Events production.
