Protecting the health and safety of our member breweries, staff, volunteers and attendees is our top priority. Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, Illinois Craft Beer Week and all related events have been postponed until further notice.

We urge you to stay safe and continue supporting your local breweries during this time of uncertainty, and we look forward to raising a glass of Illinois beer with you soon.

This is how we #DrinkIllinois

Illinois Craft Beer Week (ICBW) is a celebration of Illinois beer unlike any other! Taking over the state every year, ICBW brings together craft breweries, bars, restaurants, retailers and YOU – our craft beer fans – to celebrate the people who brew Illinois beer, drink Illinois beer and support Illinois beer!

Experience Beer Under Glass, a cornerstone of Illinois Craft Beer Week featuring 100+ breweries and after-hours access to Garfield Park Conservatory. Or take in a family-friendly event in your local taproom. With a lineup of events from Chicago to downstate, including signature festivals, taproom events, drink specials, tap takeovers, and beer releases, ICBW has something for everyone!

So, how will you #DrinkIllinois?
