FOBAB, Reimagined
at home for 2020

As we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our guests, breweries, staff, and volunteers, we are sad to announce that the festival portion of FoBAB has been cancelled. 

 

But the brewers are still brewing, and the judges are still judging. And that means, there will still be barrel-aged beer this November!

GET
YOUR KIT

November 13-14 from 12:00p-9:00p CST, you can pick-up your #FOBABatHOME kit at Hailstorm brewery in Tinley Park, IL. Masks are required for pickup and we will be following social distancing guidelines for everyone's safety.

FOBAB at home KITS

For the first time ever, assorted six-packs of our exclusive FoBAB beer entries will be made available for purchase on a limited basis. The six-packs, which span all 12 style categories, will be constructed and sold at random, allowing you to create the one-of-a-kind FoBAB experience from the comfort (and safety) of home. FoBAB at HOME kits are $60 and include:​

  • Assorted 6-pack of FoBAB Entries

  • FoBAB-branded beer tote

  • 2020 FoBAB commemorative tasting glass (13 oz.)

Presale tickets are available to ImBIBE members beginning October 20, and general admission sales open October 23. Six-packs will be available for pickup at Hailstorm Brewing on Nov. 13-14.

THE COMPETITION

This year, 162 breweries from across the country will submit over 300 of their rarest, most exclusive wood and barrel-aged beer, cider, mead and perry for judging. A limited panel of expert judges and stewards will evaluate FoBAB entries, awarding Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals as well as ‘Best in Show’ honors across 12 style categories

 

And, everyone will have a front-row seat to the award ceremony, which will be livestreamed on Saturday November 14th. Details to follow.
