The Inaugural Craft Beer Festival at the Old Joliet Prison
October 10, 2020

Unlike Any Other Craft Beer Festival

That’s our goal when we started creating this beer festival.  We want to make sure that the brewery is treated just as well as every person that attends.  And, we’re going to make sure that you have just as great of time.

Apply now to be part of this monumental event, as we raise funds for the Old Joliet Prison and its renovation and preservation.  The Prison opened in 1858, and there are many stories to tell.  We want to tell those stories, and your help in this event will assist in us telling these stories.

Brewery Stipend

Breweries are able to donate their beer to the event (we are a 501(c)3) or take a stipend.  This stipend will be paid _____________.
