DESTIHL Brewery Announces 1st Annual Field Day Beer Festival
Normal, IL – April 13, 2018 – DESTIHL® Brewery has announced it’s first annual Field Day Beer Festival featuring the Cellarman’s Games.
Join us as we celebrate the return of summer with outdoor fun reminiscent of your favorite elementary school tradition – Field Day! Field Day Beer Fest features refreshing beer samples from over 24 Midwest craft breweries, live tunes from DJ Nolan, outdoor games and activities such as bags, ladderball, horseshoes, and Jenga, and a Field Day inspired menu from DESTIHL’s culinary team. Break out your tennies, your favorite practice pinnies or lucky sweatband, and bring your team out for the fun! Prizes will be awarded for the most creative Field Day inspired outfits!
Our attending breweries aren’t sitting on the bench for this one. They need your help to cheer them on as they participate in the prestigious Cellarman’s Games! This battle for supremacy will feature an obstacle course that will require brains, brawn, luck, and liquid. Each brewery will compete against one other brewery. The top times overall go to the finals where we have a very special event waiting to determine the winner!
