This fest features Wisconsin and Illinois brewers in a friendly battle to see who takes home the “Willy”, a traveling trophy awarded to the state with the best brews as voted on by attendees at the fest.

Featuring: Brews from IL and WI, Unlimited Sampling, Collaboration Beer from Each State, Rare Beer VIP Session, 5K Fun Run/Walk, and Tug-O-War Between the States

In addition, the Border War 5K Run/Walk is a friendly battle before the #borderwarbeerfest to see which state has the best average 5K time for runners and walkers. Besides individual awards, the times of all the athletes will be averaged to find our winner – between Wisconsin and Illinois – giving the state bragging rights over the coveted “Willy 5K” trophy. This trophy will display the winning state each year and be present at all of the future Border War 5K Beer Fest races, beckoning its adversaries to reverse the winning streak each year.
