An estimated 70 craft breweries now call Chicagoland home. Combine that with hundreds in the Midwest and more than 3,000 estimated nationwide and the microbrewery explosion is mind-boggling. That said, local specialty brew lovers will be in hops heaven when Chicago Craft Beer Festival returns of its fifth suds-filled year.

Showcasing specialty, seasonal and small batch beers from local, regional and national craft brewers, the centerpiece of Chicago Craft Beer Fest is ticketed afternoon tasting passes where aficionados will be able to sample from more than 80 craft beers from over 40 brewers each afternoon. (NOTE: Because of its popularity, in 2016 tasting ticket sales will be capped at 2,500 each day.

And for those looking to enjoy some great tunes as a post-tasting dessert, the fest will again be held at Sheffield and Webster (in the heart of the DePaul/Lincoln Park neighborhood) in conjunction with the iconic annual Sheffield Music Festival & Garden Walk that's being held at the same location.
