Coming in May
Carbondale Main Street is partnering with the SIU Fermentation Science Institute and Southern Illinois Brewers to bring an exciting new event to downtown Carbondale, the CarbondALE Brew Fest! This festival will feature brews from all over the US, including ones from local breweries as well as those from Kentucky, Missouri, Michigan, and California.
CarbondALE Brew Fest will be held at the Town Square Pavilion on Friday, May 6th from 6pm-9pm, with early entry for VIP ticket holders, and an after party at Hangar 9 beginning at 9pm. In case of rain, the event will move to the Carbondale Civic Center at 200 S. Illinois Ave.
Limited advance tickets are currently for sale; General Admission tickets are $25 and include a souvenir tasting glass and tastes, VIP tickets are $40, and include a premium (larger) tasting glass, tastes, early entry to the Fest, and more!
Pricing will be $30 for General Admission and $45 for VIP at the door.
The CarbondALE Brew Fest is sure to be a great time, with live music and lots of information from brewers and representatives from over 20 breweries (a full list, and ticket information can be found at www.carbondalebrewfest.com). Several breweries are bringing seasonal craft beers and special releases!
A feature of the Festival will be the “Urban Chestnut Beer Hall” in the Town Square Pavilion itself, with a limited release of maibock from Urban Chestnut Brewing Company. The maibock will be sold for $5.00 per glass (tastes will also be available in the Urban Chestnut tent).
Proceeds will benefit Carbondale Main Street and the SIU Fermentation Science Institute. To learn more, call 618-529-8040 or visit www.carbondalebrewfest.com!
