Mash Tun Festival: The Invitational

What: Beer Festival

When: Saturday - June 22, 2013 @ 02:00PM to Saturday - June 22, 2013 @ 06:00PM

Where: Bridgeport Arts Center, Chicago, Illinois
The third edition of the Mash Tun Festival takes place June 22th, 2-6pm, 2013 in Bridgeport, the Community of the Future. (PLEASE NOTE the DATE HAS CHANGED)

The festival is a celebration of the release of Mash Tun: A Craft Beer Journal issue #3. The Mash Tun is a publication put out by your buddies at Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar and The Public Media Institute, a non profit arts and culture organization based in Bridgeport. Mash Tun is our paean to craft beer. It follows the pleasures and aesthetics of craft beer and how it intersects with food, culture, and society.

The festival features over two dozen of the world’s best breweries. Flagship and rare beers will be poured alongside one-of-a-kind concoctions at the stunning Bridgeport Art Center at 35th and Racine. The festival will be held in the 19th century atrium and the Center’s lovely sculpture garden. Local chefs and food trucks will be vending.

We are hosting an awards ceremony this year and will be giving out awards to brewers that make the best liquid in these categories:
