With the cooler weather comes Festival Season! We are excited to present to you several festivals during October and November in which we will be participating. We highly recommend attending some or all of these festivals as they provide a great opportunity to sample different beers, meet new breweries and make new friends.
Beer, Bacon and BBQ; 24 October: The Wigwam Resort Beer, Bacon and BBQ debut was last year and was a fun,
intimate and very enjoyable festival. On the front lawn of the historic Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park, this festival is adjacent to our Litchfield Taproom. A few hundred tickets have already been sold and this year’s bacon supply will be augmented with traditional BBQ dishes. We plan to pour samples of our Litchfield Hollow Pumpkin; brewed with pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves; and our Artisan Arsonist, a red ale brewed with smoked malts. Ticket prices are extremely reasonable at $39 for two tickets via Groupon which can be purchased here. We recommend you arrive early, grab your first of 15 included beer samples and then head straight for the bacon!
Peoria Beer Festival; 7 November: Peoria Sports Complex We cannot begin to describe how excited we are to attend the Peoria Beer Festival. Held in our hometown at the Peoria Sports Complex, this year’s festival will feature plenty of beer, live music, food and games. We plan to turn out all the stops with our beers and bring at least four different styles to the festival to include our Savannah Marie IPA at 7.9% ABV featuring Amarillo, Simcoe, Columbus and Centennial Hops; Haboob Black IPA a dark cascadian style ale featuring columbus and centennial hops; Honeysuckle Street Ale which is our blonde ale brewed with honey malt which imparts a slight sweetness complemented by a crisp finish and low bitterness and our ………. well, we will make the last one a surprise!
