If you love tasting specialty beers and finding new seasonal favorites, you don’t want to miss this weekend’s 9th Annual Barrington Brew Fest in downtown Barrington. It’s the finale to the community’s week-long 4th of July festivities and it’s happening from 3 to 7 p.m. this Saturday, July 7th, with over 40 brewers offering about 100 samplings. Can you think of a better way to beat the heat?


Brew Fest tickets cost $40 in advance and can be purchased online by clicking HERE or in person at McGonigal’s Pub (105 S. Cook Street), Wool Street Sports Bar (128 Wool Street) and The Onion Pub (22221 N. Pepper Road in Lake Barrington). You can also purchase tickets at the door for $45 and the ticket price is worth every penny…

Each ticket includes the beer tastings, a souvenir glass, Brew Fest t-shirts (while supplies last), Bean Bag (Baggo) contest, 50/50 raffle and a live concert by classic rock band, Second Time Around.
