Craft beer, pizza and music will be in the spotlight when the Morton Grove Park District and Joseph Mullarkey Distributors team up to host the fourth annual Cold Brews festival.
The Feb. 16 event will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Civic Center, 6140 Dempster St., in Morton Grove.
The event will provide an opportunity for people to sample craft, seasonal and import beers. Stations will be located throughout the Civic Center with a lineup featuring Revolution Brewing, Finch Beer Co., Brickstone Brewing, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., New Belgium Brewing Co., Right Bee Cider, Lakefront Brewery and more.
“They’ll have different varieties,” said Kathy Herrmann, marketing manager for Morton Grove Park District.
Herrmann said the event strives to satisfy the taste buds of everyone in attendance.
“There’s sparkling; there’s ciders,” she said.
Lou Malnati’s will provide pizza tastings. Also, the Frank and Dave Band is expected to perform.
“They play a wide variety of originals, classic rock, and current pop hits,” Herrmann said.
There will be games, and sponsors have provided prizes. The event has grown over time, and officials said last year, the event brought in an estimated 70 people.
“It’s a small community craft beer event,” Herrmann said. “It’s local. People from all over can come in.”
Admission is available for $35 in advance and the day of the event, and it includes 10 beer tasting tickets. Additional tastings can be purchased at the event.
Attendees must be age 21 or older to attend. For information or to purchase tickets, visit mortongroveparks.com.
