October 11, 2016 (Bolingbrook, IL) - As the craft beer craze continues to spread, local fests featuring dozens of beer styles are drawing ever-bigger crowds of serious and casual fans alike.  The inaugural Bolingbrook Brew Fest, on Saturday, October 15th, brings the excitement indoors in a 60,000 square-foot golf dome that will feature over 30 breweries including national leaders, local up-and-comers and recent medal-winners from the Great American Beer Festival in Denver.

"Craft beer has some really serious fans, but what we've been seeing is that even casual diners are asking more questions and want to try more styles with seasonal variation," said Jim Koklas, food and beverage director for McQ's Sports Bar & Grill, host of the Bolingbrook Brew Fest.  "We created the Fest as a way to bring all of these people together, so we'll have some very rare and limited release beers as well as more introductory samples to the craft beer experience. Plus live music, games, and great barbeque."
