Frost Fest Craft Beer Festival is a craft beer tasting event that happens on the last weekend in February, featuring more than 40 breweries serving their signature craft beers in a 5,000 square foot HEATED tent in two different sessions.

The key word here is quality. Everything about this event is high quality: the beers, the dance music and the myriad food choices offered from some of Chicago’s most popular food trucks.

This event debuted in 2015 and has taken off like a rocket. It seems that people in Chicago who are suffering from cabin fever are desperate for semi-outdoor (heated tent) entertainment!
