Sample the Area’s Best Beer at Elmhurst Craft Beer Fest – Elmwood Toyota Dealer

September 11th, 2017 by

Elmhurst Craft Beer Fest

The humorist Dave Barry once quipped that beer is the greatest invention in the history of mankind. We’re not sure we’d go quite that far, but we do appreciate a well-crafted microbrew. That’s why we at Elmhurst Toyota recommend that beer lovers pay a visit to the third annual Elmhurst Craft Beer Fest on Saturday, September 16. Hosted by the Elmhurst Heritage Foundation and the Rotary Club of Elmhurst, the event will be held on the grounds of the Elmhurst History Museum. Visitors to the Elmhurst Craft Beer Fest can choose from more than 50 craft beers that represent 30 Chicagoland-area breweries.

Barbecue Jim’s Smokehouse food truck will be on hand for those who want to pair their beer with some great food. In addition, Brain Freeze Ice Cream will be at the site serving up delicious frozen treats. The Explore Elmhurst Trolley will make the rounds through Elmhurst, so those who live near one of the trolley stops can leave the car at home.

What’s more, the proceeds go to worthy causes. All funds collected will benefit the Elmhurst History Museum’s educational programs, the Rotary Club of Elmhurst’s service projects and Churchville Schoolhouse.

We’ll see you there!
