City Council Approves Special Use Permit For Beer Festival
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
The popular Screw City Beer Fest was in danger of not happening this year until the Rockford City Council gave them the thumbs up Monday night.
The city council voted by unanimous decision to give the craft beef festival a special use permit. The festival's permit was called into question after the event's sponsor, Kryptonite Bar, shut down in July.
Alderman all said that they support the festival as long as there is still legal liability on behalf of the event sponsor, former Kryptonite owner Chris Wachowiak.
The 6th annual festival is scheduled for Saturday, September 10th at the intersection of State and Main in downtown Rockford.
