Supporting a Great Cause

The G-ALES-Burg Beer Fest isn't just about having fun – it's also a chance to contribute to a great cause. All proceeds from the festival will be going to the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation (VBF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by vascular birthmarks.

If you're a craft beer enthusiast looking for a fun way to spend a Saturday while supporting a worthy cause, the G-ALES-Burg Beer Fest is the place to be. With the best of the Midwest's craft beer scene on display, delicious food, and live music, this event promises to be a hit.
