Hopefully your liver has recovered from Chicago Craft Beer Week, because it's time to start planning for one of the top beer events of the fall.

The seventh annual event will include pours from Lagunitas, Revolution Brewing, Solemn Oath, Begyle Brewing, opening-soon DryHop Brewers, 5 Rabbit Cerveceria and others, plus a special release beer from Haymarket Pub & Brewery that will debut at Festiv-Ale.

A table also will host beer from a different local nanobrewery each hour, including Spiteful Brewing, Temperance Beer Co., 18th Street Brewery and Slapshot Brewing Company.

VIP ticket holders will have access to extra perks, including a special Solemn Oath beer and a whole pig roast from Frontier.

Other food available to all attendees will be provided by Fountainhead, SmallBar, Howells & Hood and Carmichael's Chicago Steak House, which hosts the festival.

Tickets cost $65 for regular admission and $100 for VIPs and are on sale through Festiv-Ale's website.
