Abraham Lincoln would be proud proclaiming his thoughts on beer, “I am a firm believer in the people…The great point is to bring them the real facts and beer.” The Elmhurst Heritage Foundation (EHF) is doing just that, providing the beer, for the people. The 8th Annual Elmhurst Craft Beer Fest will be held this Saturday, September 16, 2023, 1p.m. to 6p.m., on the grounds of the Elmhurst History Museum.

Tickets are going fast! General admission is $55 (1PM-6PM) and $70 for VIP entry (12PM-6PM). Designated driver tickets are $20. Great weather and cold beer have been staples at the festival and if you’re one of the first 200 attendees you will receive a $5 gift card courtesy of the Elmhurst City Centre. Tickets are available at elmhurstcraftbeerfest.com.

This annual event raises funds for the Elmhurst History Museum, including its family-friendly educational programs and museum exhibits. Funds are also used for school field trips to the museum and the Churchville One-Room Schoolhouse.

This year, over 50 brewers have committed to participating sharing their signature brews, ciders, seltzers and meads! Rigo’s Taco’s will provide a tasty to complement to the satisfying beverages. Pints in Elmhurst is the Event Sponsor for the fourth time, too!

Local business loves the fest, too, leading the way with top-level Platinum Sponsors; Lakeside Bank, Compass Real Estate – Kelly Stetler, Elmhurst Bank, The Katris Law Group, Farmer’s Insurance – The Hinton Agency and McGrath Elmhurst Toyota. Music will be headlined by Lake Effect and Petty Cash, returning this year!

Lincoln would appreciate lifting a glass and sharing this truth – the Elmhurst Craft Beer Fest is a can’t miss event!
