The Midwest Brewers Fest is a true craft beer festival
where you will find over 120 unique beers meads and ciders. Representatives
from a number of breweries will be on site for you to directly interact and ask
questions about your favorite brews.

The 2012 Midwest Brewers Fest has two purposes. The first
is to raise funds and awareness for the restoration of the Plainfield
Riverfront Park. The Riverfront Foundation plans are focused on a total
restoration aimed at bringing people together (http://www.plainfieldriverfront.com/)
so that generations to come can enjoy the scenic views and recreational
amenities the park once held. The second is to introduce those not familiar to
the art and craft of fine beer. The idea was originated by local craft beer
enthusiasts and is now being produced by volunteers from all walks of life who
share a passion for great beer and a spirit of community.

We’re going to have an amazing lineup of craft beers. We
expect to draw over 3,000 people and have 55+ breweries registered.
