 WHAT IS BREW FEST? 

The Brew Fest is an annual fundraiser to support the sustainability initiatives of the Horner Park Advisory Council - basically keeping things lean and green on the North Side. Last year's goal was to raise sufficient funds to treat and preserve 79 critically endangered ash trees. Horner Park is the only remaining city park with a grove of healthy ash trees. Over 25,000 ash have been cut down and removed from the rest of the park system because of the Emerald Ash Borer infestation. Because of the generosity of our sponsors and patrons, sufficient funds were raised in 2022 to treat and protect these trees for the next few years.

Our 2024 Sustainability Goal is to establish Horner Park as an internationally accredited mini-arboretum with an on-line catalog and map of the 1000+ trees and shrubs that reside there. Horner is the home of over 100 distinct species of which many are critically endangered. More details to follow.

 

So join us for four hours of cold craft beer and cider from over thirty of Chicago's best local breweries on a warm summer night under the trees in beautiful Horner Park. But wait there's more... Local food trucks will line the park, plus live music from one of Chicago's great cover bands.

Tickets are $50 per person, which includes: Admission to the event, a tasting glass and samples from every attending brewery. That's over 60 varieties of beer from which to choose. Participants must be at least 21 years old. We also offer a reduced rate of $10 for non-drinking, designated drivers.

Thanks to all of our friends and neighbors who supported the 2023 Horner Brew Fest.   It was our most successful fundraiser ever. We hope to see you all again next year on Friday, July 19, 2024. Save the date.

Horner Brew Fest is part of HornerFest. Event is Rain or Shine. Must be 21 years old to enter.  Sorry, no pets,
