At last, we invite you to the Lo Rez Anniversary Fest, a celebration of our one year anniversary from 3:00 - 9:00 PM on June 9th. Not only is this celebration an excuse for us to throw a big party, but also to highlight some great breweries who helped us out, high-five the small business owners who we are fortunate to now call friends, raise money for DACA students at Benito Juarez, and have a beer with all of you for making it a fun & exciting year. It’s been a blast! 

Join us after 3:00 PM on Saturday, June 9th for an outdoor festival in the Lo Rez parking lot. The fest will feature craft beer from Lo Rez Brewery, Whiner Beer CompanyHopewell Brewing CompanyMarz Community BrewingOn Tour Brewing Co., and a chance to try casked home-brew beer by C.H.A.O.S. Brew Club. We will also be celebrating with a great lineup of local bands, businesses, food and drink vendors. Don’t miss the after party from 9:00 - 11:00 PM in the Lo Rez taproom, featuring live music from These Old Men They Play Records

In an effort to support Pilsen students protected by DACA, the Lo Rez Anniversary Fest will be used as a platform to fundraise for Benito Juarez Community Academy, located at 21st and Laflin.
