Great Taste with Zero Waste: Oak Park Micro Brew Review

Great Taste with Zero Waste: Oak Park Micro Brew Review

Did you know that the Midwest’s largest zero-waste craft beer festival happens right here in our own backyard?

The Oak Park Micro Brew Review, which started out 12 years ago as a fundraiser for local environmental non-profit Seven Generations Ahead (SGA), has grown in popularity along with the boom in craft brewing and eating locally and sustainably. With nearly 4,000 attendees, 80+ craft brewers, and dozens of vendors, the Micro Brew Review has the potential to leave a huge mess, but SGA founder and executive director Gary Cuneen and his team have developed a formula for events with great taste and zero waste.
