DESTIHL Brewery is excited to announce our first-ever beer festival: Field Day Beer Fest featuring the Cellarman's Games. Join us as we celebrate the return of summer with outdoor fun reminiscent of your favorite elementary school tradition - Field Day! Field Day Beer Fest features refreshing beer samples from several Midwest craft breweries, live tunes from DJ Nolan, outdoor games and activities such as bags, ladderball, horseshoes, and Jenga, and a Field Day inspired menu from DESTIHL's culinary team. Break out your tennies, your favorite practice pinnies or lucky sweatband, and bring your team out for the fun! Prizes will be awarded for the most creative Field Day inspired outfits! Our attending breweries aren't sitting on the bench for this one. They need your help to cheer them on as they participate in the prestigious Cellarman's Games!
