The third annual Screw City Beer Festival will be held on Saturday, September 7th, 2013 from 1 to 5:30 PM in the heart of downtown Rockford, IL. Located at the intersection of State and Main Streets, SCBF will host dozens of American craft breweries and pour over 130 different beers to 2000 craft beer enthusiasts. For 2013, Screw City Beer Festival will add a small Belgian beer section with a selection of sours, farmhouse ales, and strong ales. Screw City Beer Festival 2013 will be one to not miss!
Screw City Beer Festival was founded in early 2011 by a group of local business owners and craft beer enthusiasts. A grassroots effort, SCBF was met with a virtually sold out crowd, rave reviews, and awarded the State of Illinois Governor's Award for Best New Event/Festival of 2011 and the River District Association's Heart of Rockford Award for Best Festival/Special Event in 2012.
A big Thank You to everyone who came out and supported SCBF in 2012. We strive to make 2013 an even greater experience!
