Craft beer to flow Saturday at downtown Grayslake festival
Suds will be flowing Saturday in downtown Grayslake with the inaugural Grayslake Craft Beer Festival.
The event will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. at South Whitney Street, between Center Street and Park Avenue.
More than 100 beers from at least 30 small breweries will be represented. All patrons must be 21 or older; children and pets will be allowed on the festival grounds.
General admission tickets remain available for $35, while entry for designated drivers is $10. The general admission tab covers 25 three-ounce craft beer samples, a commemorative glass and live music. Additional sample tickets may be purchased for 25 cents apiece.
Designated drivers will receive unlimited free soft drinks and water at a special area. Designated drivers will get a souvenir pint glass when exiting the festival, which is sponsored by the Grayslake Area Chamber of Commerce.
Food will be available for purchase from vendors. The food will pair well with craft beer.
Breweries expected to be in attendance include Light the Lamp, New Holland, Dogfish Head, Shipyard, Potosi, Big Sky, Harpoon and Goose Island.
Parking will be available throughout downtown Grayslake, with the principal lot at Center and Seymour streets, near the festival. Metra's Milwaukee District North Line makes regular stops in Grayslake at a station less than a mile from the bash.
All of the net proceeds from Grayslake Craft Beer Festival will go toward college scholarships for deserving local students. The Exchange Club of Grayslake and the chamber will split the college awards.
