One of the best things about the Region is the large selection of breweries. Nothing beats heading to any of the great local ale houses to kick back with some friends and enjoy delicious craft beers. Many of these locations serve unique foods and pub favorites to accompany their brews, as well.

On Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 2:30pm to 6pm Crown Brewing will be hosting their annual Crown Beer Fest at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Crown Point, bringing together more than 50 different breweries. Many of the featured breweries are found here in the Region.
