2019 Festival of Wood & Barrel-Aged Beer Announces FoBAB Brewery List

2019 Festival of Wood & Barrel-Aged Beer Announces FoBAB Brewery List

The 17th Annual Festival of Wood & Barrel-Aged Beer (FoBAB), the world’s largest barrel-aged beer festival and competition, will occur in Chicago on Nov. 8-9 at the University of Illinois-Chicago. More than 200 craft breweries from across the United States will showcase innovative, rare and special barrel-aged brews, while also competing for top honors in The National Barrel-Aged Beer Competition.

“FoBAB continues to be a one-of-a-kind showcase of the creativity, innovation and passion that defines the craft beer industry,” said Danielle D’Alessandro, executive director for the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild, host of FoBAB for 17 years. “We’re thrilled to provide a venue for breweries across the nation to feature their barrel-aged beer to thousands of enthusiasts from all over the world.”

Last year, Bottle Logic Brewing took home the coveted “Best in Show” award, with the runner-up going to Hopewell Brewing.  Who will take home the awards this year? You can follow the main PorchDrinking.com Twitter feed, @PorchDrinkingCO, or the Chicago region’s @PorchDrinkingChi feed for exclusive, live results of the awards ceremony during the early afternoon session on November 9 (exact time: TBA).  

In the meantime, here are the 200+ breweries heading to Chicago to pour and compete at FoBAB 2019. Tickets are still currently available at fobab.com, grab yours before they sell out.
