Illinois Craft Beer Week

Chicago, IL 60647

Illinois Craft Beer Week (ICBW) is the most anticipated celebration of craft beer and craft breweries across Illinois. Taking over the state, ICBW features hundreds of events, tap takeovers and drink specials in breweries, bars, and restaurants from Chicago to Downstate.

It’s an exciting time for the Illinois craft beer industry! In 2018, Chicago became the nation’s craft brewery capital, and all across Illinois our breweries are driving economic development, creating jobs, and becoming anchors in the communities and neighborhoods they call home.

ICBW is all about celebrating those who brew Illinois beer, drink Illinois beer, and support Illinois beer. Start planning your #ICBW activities when the official event lineup goes live in April!
