Illinois Wine Experience – Now with beer

Buzz Bomb is out at the fair for the first time ever! Even better, we are in the Artisans building with the Illinois Grape Growers and Vintners Association (IGGVA) at the  Illinois Wine Experience. This is the first year ever that the Illinois Wine Experience has featured craft beer and we are proud to be serving alongside some of Illinois’ best wineries.

We are out at the fair both weekends, Friday-Sun 1pm-10pm!

Your $10 entry fee provides six tasting tickets and a complimentary stemless wine glass. Additional tasting tickets are available for purchase, enabling you to sample award-winning wines for all taste preferences (White, Red, Rosé, dry, sweet, semi-sweet). Cool off and relax with the winemakers while you sample, sip and stock up for home (purchase a case or more and your wine gets a ride to your vehicle on the fairgrounds). Must be 21 to sample/purchase wine or beer.
