IS THIS A FAMILY EVENT
This is strictly a 21 and over event – so leave the little ones at home.  Everyone entering the fest must present a valid government issued ID.

 

CAN I BRING MY DOG
We love dogs but unfortunately no dogs are allowed into the fest.  Plus, dogs shouldn’t drink beer.

 

CAN I BRING MY OWN BEER
No outside food or drinks are allowed inside the festival – this includes bottled water.  Once inside the fest water will be provided for drinking and rinsing your glass. The only exception is pretzel necklaces.

 

CAN I BRING MY OWN CHAIR
There will be picnic tables for seating but if you are particularly attached to your chair you can bring it into the fest.

 

WILL THERE BE FOOD AVAILABLE
Yes, some of Berwyn’s favorite restaurants will be in attendance.

 

WHAT IF IT RAINS
The Berwyn Brew Fest is a rain or shine event.  Don’t tell us you’ve never drank in the rain.

 

WHERE CAN I PARK
Free parking is available along the BNSF Metra tracks (map) and in the Depot District Parking Facility at 3320 S Grove Ave (map). The parking deck typically charges a fee but the fee is waived on the day of the event. A free shuttle will taxi event-goers between Proksa Park and the parking deck. Or you can simplify, take the train and walk!

 

WHY ARE THERE DRINK TICKETS
This is a regulatory measure to keep in compliance with Illinois liquor laws. Berwyn Brew Fest ticket holders will receive 10 drink tickets.  Each drink ticket can be exchanged for a 3-oz sample. Additional drink tickets are available for $0.50 per ticket.  Additional samples are limited to 10 tickets for a total of 30 oz.
