The Illinois Craft Brewers Guild is a non-profit organization founded in 1997 dedicated to promote the development and expansion of the craft beer industry in Illinois. Its efforts are focused on the following areas:
1. Legislative/Regulatory - To allow the Guild a voice in addressing all issues, governmental or other, which affect the regulation of our industry.
2. Education - To provide opportunities for its members to further their brewing knowledge and to educate the consumer about the benefits and varieties of craft beer, and to encourage responsible, moderate consumption.
3. Promotion - To promote its members and their products to other brewers, suppliers, legislators, tourists and the general public.
ICBG members regularly win medals at such prestigious national and international competitions such as the Great American Beer Festival SM, World Beer Cup ®, and our own highly-regarded Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer SM. Here are our medal winners for the last few years at these events:
