Midwest Brewers Fest 2012
Plainfield, IL – Midwest Brewers Fest – is a true craft beer festival where you will find over 150 unique beers. The brew master’s and their staff will be on site to for you to directly interact and ask questions about your favorite brews.
The event has two purposes. The first is to raise funds that will be used to restore the Plainfield Riverfront Park. The Riverfront Foundation plans are focused on a total restoration aimed at bringing people together (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 two local craft beer enthusiasts, Dale Lewis and Steve Caton, and is now being produced by volunteers from all walks of life who share a passion for great beer and a spirit of community.
