I know that Tinley Park has a Beer and Wine Fest in April and Racine WI has The Great Lakes Beer fest in September and Dark Lord Day is also in April in NW Indiana.

What other beer fests are there out there within a 150 miles of Chicago?

Doesn't look like they've posted yet for 2011 details, but I went in 2010, and it was awesome. Lots of good beer.

There's Winter Warmer put on by Lafayette Brewing Co., but it is already sold out for this year.
