This years event will take place on Saturday, August 16th from 1:00pm to 10:00pm and Sunday, August 17th from 1:00pm to 8:00pm at Saraveza and their neighboring The Bad Habit Room.

Festival goers will have the opportunity to try unique IIPA Fest beers made by Block 15, Base Camp Brewing Co, Coalition, Gigantic, Solera and more. Some of these IIPAs were brewed special just for this festival. This year also boasts the release of “Freaky Nasty”, an Imperial IPA brewed by the Saraveza crew with Breakside Brewery especially for the Fest! Taps will be rotating at Saraveza, Bad Habit Room and in the outdoor seating area on N. Michigan.

SaravezaWith all of these big, bold intensely hopped beers one may need some flavorful food to go with these beverages. Saraveza is bringing back their porklicious BBLT’s. And if you’re in a hurry there will be express service at the “BBLTs ASAP” booth.

Then to add something for your sweet tooth Saraveza will also be serving up some special Berliner Weisse sorbet cones. Is there a better way to cleanse your palate on a nice summer afternoon?
