What is Emil’s Brrrew Fest?

Hosted by CD&ME, a Premier Midwest Indoor/Outdoor Venue & Lake Shore Beverage.  Creating a Premier Midwest Brrrew Fest.  It only makes sense.


Where is the fest located? 

At CD&ME:  23320 S. LaGrange Road – Frankfort IL.  Parking is Free 

Is this a family event? Can I bring my children? 

No, this is a 21+ event.  No one under age 21 will be admitted.  IDs are checked at the door.  You must have valid identification to enter.  All attendees must be of legal drinking age to participate.  Children, babies and pets are not permitted with the exception of Service Dogs. 


Do I have to be 21? 

This event is strictly 21+.   No one under 21 will be admitted 


Is the fest canceled if it is too much snow to cold or rain? 

No. This is a rain or shine event. No Refunds


Will there be tickets for sale at the door on the day of the festival? 

Yes.  If not sold out there will be a limited number of tickets for purchase.


Will any of the breweries run out of beer? 

It is possible that a brewery may run out of a popular beer before the fest ends.  Breweries try their best to plant accurately for these festivals, however, sometimes many of the popular beers sell out.  We cannot guarantee that a particular beer will be available the entire span of the festival 


How long will I have to stand in line? 

It always depends on the festival, but lines are inevitable.  We try to keep line waits down to no more than 15 minutes, but we cannot ensure a specific wait time.  Popular breweries tend to have longer lines and the longest wait times.  Please be patient, considerate and enjoy! 

What CAN I bring in with me? 

You’ll need your ticket and ID to enter, so make sure you have those! 

Personal cameras/camera phones – pictures ARE encouraged! 

Pretzel necklace 

A pen – In fact, we recommend it for keeping track of your favorite beers/breweries, so you remember for later 


What can I NOT bring in with me? 

You are not allowed to enter the festival with weapons of any kind, illegal substances, outside food or beverages – including alcohol, glass containers of any kind, backpacks, fireworks and explosives.  Instruments and laser pointers, picnic baskets, lawn furniture, no pets except Service Dogs, professional camera or video equipment, coolers of any kind.
