Ravenswood On Tap

Malt Row is one of the most prolific craft brewing communities in the country – and it’s right here in Ravenswood! Each year, we celebrate this cultural ferment with Ravenswood On Tap, a two-day outdoor festival that is all about local.

Enjoy beers from Malt Row breweries, KOVAL Distillery cocktails, special tappings, incredible live music, delicious street food, local artists and artisans, axe-throwing, and more! Ravenswood On Tap is open on Saturday, 7/20 (12-10pm) and Sunday, 7/21 (12-6pm).
