Aug 27th — Summer Crushes fruit beer festival

TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR — ONLINE SALES HAVE ENDED.

Join Good Beer Hunting for a late summer hang  — in collaboration with 5 Rabbit Cerveceria, the brewery that brought us Paletas, those colorful, fruity popsicle-inspired beers of the Chicago summer, we're kicking off a new event focused specifically on fruited beers. 

We're gathering a bunch of our brewing friends to bring you some of the best fruit-infused, and fruit-fermented beers around, as well as some new one-off experiments. 

We'll be hosting the small festival at 5 Rabbit brewery — so if you haven't yet gotten out to see their new taproom, this is as good a reason as you'll get. 

Tons of great beer, some summery food, and summer jams. Join us, and help make the first Summer Crushes festival one of those lasting summer memories you hold in your heart for years to come.
