22 Years O’ Beer…The 22nd Peoria Jaycees International Beer Fest!

The Peoria Jaycees are proud to have continued the legacy of bringing craft, import, and micro- brews to Central Illinois! So come out and help us celebrate on Friday April 11th from 6-10pm at Exposition Gardens in Peoria for its 22nd year! Friday night, attendees will have the chance to taste over 100 brews from all around the world as they eat tasty bites from local restaurants, and enjoy the sounds of the local band, The Brazillionaires, as they play an acoustic evening. Tickets for Friday’s event are $20 in advance, and at the door. 50% of the door proceeds on Friday night will benefit victims of the tornado that tore through Tazewell County last November.
Saturday April 12th is the big event! Beginning at 1pm and running until 8pm; join us, and over 5,000 guests from Peoria and beyond, as we give you the opportunity to enjoy over 325 beers from around the world!

Commemorative sample glasses will be given to the first 4000 guests through the door on Saturday. Saturday admission tickets are available for $15 in advance and $18 at the door. Admission tickets are available at many local outlets, including Friar Tuck Beverage, Rhodell Brew Pub, Super Liquors and are always available online at our website. Beer sample tickets are $1 each.
