We are excited to host our 5th annual Lake County Craft Beer Festival. Each year we have seen a steady growth in new vendors and attendees. We encourage local home breweries, large breweries, distilleries, and wineries to take a night off from their busy schedules and join us for a night to market your product and sample other like products inside our 65,000 ft expo hall.
We also have a wide array of sponsorship opportunities. Please contact us for more information.
