On Sunday, March 19, the original Goose Island Brewery on Clybourn is hosting its final Stout Fest. Visitors can sample beer from over 25 breweries and vote on their favorite to win the Stout Fest trophy.

Due to popular demand, the festival has added a second time slot – the first from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. and the second from 3-6 p.m. View the growing list of participating breweries on their Instagram page.

Tickets are $70 each for both sessions and include unlimited tastings, a 2023 souvenir glass, and small bites. Purchase tickets on their website.
