The new festival, which would be one of the largest in the Midwest, will take place on May 11, a mere five days before the start of Chicago Craft Beer Week.
That makes this festival different from smaller, local-focused fests -- as do the American Beer Classic's plentiful samples. While some other events mete out tickets for small pours, ticket prices for this festival include hundreds of beer samples for guests to choose from. Live music, concessions and beer-related vendors are also planned.
Organized by Red Frog Events, the American Beer Classic will take place over the course of four hours, beginning at noon on May 11. An evening session may be added if demand is strong enough.
Ticket prices begin at $40 for advanced registration and increase $10 each month to reach a final price of $70 for day-of admission. VIP tickets, which include the option to arrive an hour early to the festival, cost double. Tickets are on sale now at the event's website.
