Border War Beer Fest will consist of one afternoon session from 3:00 – 6:30 pm (2pm entry for VIP Guests).  It will offer an impressive array of beer and hard ciders from Illinois and Wisconsin craft brewers. In addition to the sampling of craft beers, attendees can purchase food and enjoy live music from Rock Daddy’s and other craft beer-centric activities.

Back for its 4th year, BWBF will feature Wisconsin and Illinois brewers in a friendly battle to see who takes home the  “Willy”, a traveling trophy awarded to the state with the best brews as voted on by attendees at the fest.  Food truck cuisine and home brews will round out the line-up, and fest-goers can cheer on their state!

VIP Guests receive exclusive and rare beers from guest breweries across the US and food.
