Festival of Wood & Barrel Aged Beers (FOBAB)

November 4, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 1:00pm, repeating until November 5, 2022

FoBAB 20 returns to Credit Union 1 Arena for two in-person tasting sessions, Friday November 4 and Saturday November 5, at Credit Union 1 Arena in Chicago.

Festival attendees will have the opportunity to sample hundreds of barrel-aged beers, ciders, meads, and perries across 12 style categories (subject to change), each hand-crafted and aged in contact with wood or wood barrels in breweries from coast to coast.  An ‘Oasis’ lounge will provide a reprieve from the traditionally higher ABV samples available throughout the festival. Once again, brewers will be pouring throughout the main floor, around the concourse, and outdoors, and food will be available for purchase throughout the arena.

We’re putting everything we’ve got into crafting a 20th anniversary celebration you won’t forget, so there will be no FoBAB To Go option this year. We hope you’ll join us in person!
