MWBF 2013what is it?
Midwest Brewers Fest – is a true craft beer festival where you will find over 150 unique beers. The brew master’s and their staff will be on site to for you to directly interact and ask questions about your favorite brews.
The event has two purposes. The first is to raise funds that will be used to restore the Plainfield Riverfront Park. The Riverfront Foundation plans are focused on a total restoration aimed at bringing people together (www.plainfieldriverfront.org) so that generations to come can enjoy the scenic views and recreational amenities the park once held.
The second is to introduce those not familiar to the art and craft of fine beer.
The idea was originated by two local craft beer enthusiasts, Dale Lewis and Steve Caton, and is now being produced by volunteers from all walks of life who share a passion for great beer and a spirit of community.
help supportPLAINFIELD RIVERFRONT FOUNDATION
In 1990 a devastating tornado changed the face of Plainfield and included the destruction of one of the town’s historic landmarks that was formerly known as Electric Park.
In 2007, a plan was formed to revitalize Electric Park. That plan in now known as Project: Riverfront. The simple idea behind Project: Riverfront was to reestablish and then maintain the natural characteristics of the land, create an attraction that would provide an entertainment venue for people across the area, build back the identity that was unique to this local community, and create memories that would last for another 100 years.
Late in 2009, to spearhead this initiative with fundraising and implementation The Plainfield Riverfront Foundation was formed. We honor the tradition of past times with the simple things of life in a town that seeks to preserve its culture and memories for generations to come. We are proud to announce The Plainfield Riverfront as the venue for the Second Annual Midwest Brewers Fest.
